Oh well, I now realize selling her was a mistake, but I am enjoying the search for her replacement.
if it is any encouragement for you and your woes / efforts... I'd sold mine b/c I 'needed to' at the time, didn't regret it as I don't believe in it but def missed it - and - but 1.5yrs later offered back for purchase out of the blue. Find another 8-).

Plus your car is sorted and believe me, there is value in having a known entity.
^werdz of wisdom once again^

and if it makes you feel any better Patrick, my cab gut was of similar patina from the CA / NV rays... and that was on a '96 - sun's a biatch heh heh.

anywho

everyone's situ is unique tho and sometimes you have to do what have to do, if if that's the case - again - GLWS... otherwise, GLW attending to your baby and yer 'baby' 8-)

mine goes 'neglected' (not really, but I also want a solid gold toilet it's just not in the cardz) as my family comes first and that devours precious time / $$$ resources (I'm no superhero as some folks who own these things sure are Just John Q MiddleClassless,) but I do best I can and pretty good keeping up with it... it can be done
