||You see, when you start losing a tremendous amount of money, you have to know when to give up. Everyone knows that cars are always lose value, but you have to decide if the time, money, and stress you expend to keep it running is less than the time saved, money saved, and enjoyment you get from the car. If it's not, and from this diary I would think not, then you have to get rid of it now.
