Vroom, Cough, Cough, Ka-put

My 1996 Toyota Corolla is dying. 
We paid $89 this morning to find that out.  (We totally already knew, but now we know for sure.)

She might have one month to live, or 12. 
Poor little thing, she's been a good car.  She just got tired of driving downtown everyday.  I don't think Dan's financial and computer geek speed cd's helped her either. I don't blame her, she was more of a Backstreet Boys and Beyonce kind of car. 
I would throw in the towel too.

I just didn't want to start the New Year off with another car payment.

Aw, poor thing. I'll be so sad when my Jetta dies (she is 9 years old now, a young one compared to yours!). Hopefully you'll find a new car that works for your family!

That is tragic. I would just die if I had to listen to that too.
Boo Hoo!
Car shopping???

Hardly fun - we *might* buy my parents Camry to tide us over for a few years. I DREAD the thought of another big car payment for a commuter car!
