My car broke down on thursday afternoon and the roadside assist guy that came out said the fuel pump was dead, so I got it towed, had the fuel pump replaced and still nothing, then they discovered a gear had shorn all it's teeth off and scattered them through the engine, which would cost 3 grand to replace, and the car is only worth two running.

So now I have a chunk of scrap worth about 50 bucks and have to replace it in a week so I can get my kids to school. Which means extending our mortgage since I have no income and no savings.
Odds of getting back to meetup this year, virtually nil.

i finally got my car back just now. it's been gone for 2 weeks and cost me $2400, but on the plus side it runs better than ever now. every pack of cigarettes has a silver lining.

:D I'm glad to hear all of those! Including the cost because, it could have been more.

Why drive a car when you could get this?

see now I don't feel as bad about spending $400 on my car on my bday. I don't think I have a right to complain.

Good mechanics are awesome. I'm glad they sorted it out!

Nick just spent $200 to buy a gear in the speedometer. It's tiny, and we're not 100% sure it will fix it, but no-one really wants to buy a car if the speedo doesn't work :P

Yeah, spending tons on cars is like, "yeay, my life savings are gone now, but at least i have something that does exactly what it used to do before its insides blew up!"

Glad you're cruising around town again tho.
