Honestly, most of you have know what I have gone through the last 2 years, it has been difficult. I blame myself for not making it a priority on the upkeep.... But I honestly have not had the resources to do some. I am so over it at this point. I have no idea what to do. I am really bummed right now........ not looking for sympathy here, things are finally looking up and this happens, just bad timing and I am totally lost here.

oh well, end rant...............

I would love too, but I don't need a 70-900 car payment. I want to buy another house closer to OC in the near future. If that means buying a 15-17k car and working on the 330 than so be it. Trust me, I have been with this car for 8+ years and love it ( i know it is weird, but even when i pulled her out of the garage tonight, I was looking at it and still loved the lines, even though she is being a b*tch... lol ), but it is time to maybe look at other options and keep her waiting in the wings.....
