here's Aurora's story:
First off, i want to tell you that i always loved cars and animals for
as far back as i can remember.
When i was young, i used to play with dolls, stuffed animals and toy
cars. When i grew older, the
stuffed animals dolls and toy cars disappeared, but my passion for
animals and cars remained.
My passion for Dolphins came around at the age of 16. I'll try to tell
you a short story about my
life from getting my driving license till now with all my previous cars
as returning items.
When i turned 18, i started my driving lessons right away and i passed
the final driving test at
11-11-94. I still lived with my parents and my first car was already
waiting for me thanks to my
dad. It was a cute, old Skoda. Shortly afterwards, my boyfriend and i
started living together,
and i took the Skoda with me.
My boyfriend had his own car so i didn't have to depend on him to drive,
which was good because
i loved to go for a drive often, alone or with my best friend (she loved
driving but she didn't have
a license), for 4 years my best friend and i had a lot fun with the
Skoda, but then the time came
when it was beyond fixing and it had to go.
Oh, i was so sad about that.
My dad had another car for me in 1998. This was my first Opel Kadett. A
grey, 3 door, with a
hatchback, and a 1.3i engine. It didn't take long for it to become my
favorite type of car, i just
loved the looks of Kadett. Again, my best friend and i drove a lot in
this car and she got a
boyfriend who was studying to become an airbrusher. That's how the idea
His first airbrush on my car was as soon as he finished his studies. I
started this website at the
end of the year 2000, which helped me to decide that the airbrush for my
car had to contain
After 3 years, the grey Kadett had to go too, but as my dad bought a new
Kadett. I took his old
one in the year 2001, this was a white, 3 door, with a hatchback, and a
1.6i engine. This is the
period when i started designing the website. Unfortunately my best
friend and her boyfriend
broke up, but he promised me he would still do the airbrush for me and
at 01-20-2001 he gave me
a coupon for it as a wedding gift.
The year 2004 came with a lot of changes for me. My marriage ended in
January and i moved in
with a good friend of my parents. Because of the website, I spend a lot
of time on the internet in
the year 2001 and i found a lot of sweet friends on an IRC network.
These people were the ones
who helped me through the divorce. These friends came from many
different country's, such as
America, England, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Spain, Poland, Germany, etc.
My best friends were a Dane and a Norwegian, but feelings grew stronger
between the Danish guy
and me. He decided to come to Holland and see if these feelings were
true, and so they were and
we became a couple. The distance was no problem, as he also loved
driving an Opel Kadett.
The first time i drove to him, i still had the white hatchback. But when
i went back, i saw a white,
4 door, Opel Kadett sedan with a 1.6i engine. Which i bought after my
dad gave it two thumbs up.
The Hatchback went back to my dad. By that time, i had to find my own
living space as i wanted my
cats back. Due to a low income, i settled for a caravan and bought it on
After purchasing the caravan, it was a lot easier for my Danish
boyfriend to come over.
Also, my best friend from Norway stayed over for a while.
The relationship with the Dane ended in November 2004. It was very hard
for me to get over that.
I visited a friend in Finland, and later they came over to spend their
holiday's with me in the
Netherlands. I also made drastic changes in the line of jobs i had.
Until now, i worked at shops and
had one office job, and now i want my passion to become my job. I found
my first job as a courier,
later i changed to transportation.
On the date 06-07-2005 i received a phone call from the garage owner
where i always brought my
cars for maintenance. He said "Daan i have a Kadett here, it's really
you. You have to come and see
it." and he was so right. For the first time, i fell in love with a car,
and it was a purple Opel Kadett
GSI convertible. I yelled "SOLD!!!" and one hour later i drove of with
my new love. Earned and
paid for all by myself, which was no problem, as i worked for a
transport company at the time
and they paid well.
