09/06/2007: "Bye Geek Mobile"
Well, I can say that I definitely got my money's worth with my old car. My first car in fact. Here's a picture of my 1996 Ford escort wagon when I dropped it off at the auto wrecker's last Saturday. It was at the point of needing more repairs then it was worth. The 'needs repair' list included: speedometer broken since last winter, heater core leaks so was bypassed (therefore no heat or defrost), windshield had growing cracks for the last couple years, 'check engine' light has been on for a couple years, tires required air every time I filled up on gas, bad tires, non-functioning parking brake and a leaking radiator (small leak when it gets cold out). We have upgraded to a 2000 Honda Accord, which is a much nicer ride.
