Thanks everyone for the input. I sold it for $500. In the end, I figured it was better to save up the money for a vehicle I really wanted. Plus, we still have two cars to make it through. My only regret was that I didn't get to shoot it.

Look on the bright side; The cold will make you appreciate Fla that much more!

Now, he's been playing hockey on it, but still, he's been in there.

I NEVER get a Wednesday off - this is a very rare thing. Usually it's Saturday or Friday and it's different each week. And when it is one of those days - I always have my youngest DD at home with me, so none of my image editing would be possible if she were around!

I'm not worried about an upsale, as this is not his usual business practice, but the car is only worth about $2700. Do I fix it and hope to get another 5 years our of it? Or, try to sell it as is?

I missed a couple of days there. Norm you ended up better off. If your engine over heated then it was the pump went out and took the belt with it. When the timing belt fails the engine stops right there because the valves stop moving. If you had had the head repaired when he pulled it you would have had at least one probably 2 bent valves (bout $200 each), also you may have had damage to the piston heads ($1000 and up). Plus any damage the heat did before it died.
Your mechanic should have checked the heads before quoting you on the pump, but you ended up lucking out.

I shall have a tequila in mourning for your car.:

Yeah, I've been watching the last few years, but I just couldn't bring myself to waste my time with it this year. Virtually every one of the "fan favorites" is a contestant I deplore.

I like Malcolm and Dawn. I can tolerate Cochran, and I don't mind looking at Andrea. The rest...


We saved it on DVR, but I don't know that DW will watch this season. She saw Philip on a commercial and said she refused to watch another season with him.
