A Journey to Not Be Repeated

So I recently took a trip to New Orleans for my birthday and St. Patrick's day, but that has little relevance to the story. Where we shall begin is when my girlfriend and I left New Orleans, we did not return home to Philadelphia, no we flew to Orlando to meet a gentleman, term used very loosely, about a car.
