Parker Kligerman suffered a very personal loss to a dear friend, and he shared the news on Instagram.
Kligerman — stock car driver and NASCAR analyst — said goodbye his Audi A4. The car was born in 2007, and based on this account, the two never seemed to tire of each other. They never spun their wheels in anger, never suffered from burn out.
Kligerman thinks his pal was one of a kind — quite possibly the only Audi A4 to turn three laps on the high banks of Bristol Motor Speedway.
The car lived with Kligerman for 95,000 miles. But just like with NASCAR drivers, the old reliable has given way to a younger, sleeker version, a 2018 edition that looks great and has all of the new gadgets, but with 28 miles, still needs a lot of learning to do.

Today I said goodbye to an old faithful friend// This 2007 Audi A4 and I went through a lot together(Mostly me being fired) the last 8 years and I can almost guarantee it’s the only Audi A4 to turn 3 laps on the high-banks of Bristol Motor Speedway. At 95k miles I told it thanks and moved on to a real pent-up power 2018 S3. Which satisfies the need to enter the current age of automobiles, tech gizmos and ability to actually connect my phone to it. Will have more updates later as it only has 28 miles on it.
