I Need a Drink!

I've been having issues with my car, or should I say ex-car. Anyway I haven't had the money to get everything fixed at one time so I've been doing it bit by bit.

Well I finally got the chance to take it into a shop last week. At first they told us it would probably be about $1000 between engine work and transmission work. I was ecstatic. This is a huge deal for a Cadillac SLS. Everything is expensive on that freakin' car. Anyway, they thought it would be done in a few days.

Well surprise they call The Man back to tell him it was much worse then they thought and due to all the parts it's now going to cost $4000+, do we still want to get it fixed?

Heeeeeeeell no!! Crazy people. I didn't even spend that much for the car. So now, I am somehow going to have to find the money for a new car because the old one is no longer worth it. *sigh*

Thanks for stopping by.

Oh NO!!!!
That's rotten. What year is the Caddy? Does your man do any car work? We've been soooo lucky because Matt can do stuff like that. Ugh. I'll be praying that a well-running, cheap little rice burner comes your way. Get some writing done and maybe you'll feel better.

It's a 95 and actually The Man is a mechanic and graduated from one of the best schools in the country for the field however since he does not have specialized tools (he doesn't work in a car shop he supervises a truck shop)he can't do some work. Even with that it's the parts that cost an arm and a leg. He's done all the previous work on this baby and I guess we've just decided that enough is enough. *sigh*

Thanks for the well wishes. *smoochies*
