Oh irony, we are your bitch! [Dec. 20th, 2010|04:21 pm]

So, remember all the worries about my car, and how they turned out to actually not be so bad after all?

The other day Sharon's car blew up its engine. If we can get a reconditioned engine, it will cost us around $7000 plus labour. Repairing the existing engine would be about $4000.

Suddenly Sharon and I have been reminded exactly why we like my car.

Oh, and we're both rather sick at the moment.

On the plus side, I'm still very pretty.

Ouch! Well, glad to hear you still have your looks, but sorry to hear about the other stuff going pear shaped. No warranty I take it?

Couldn't get one due to the age. Rang the place we bought it from and the woman was pretty upset. As she put it, it passed the NSW rego process first go, and they're bastards, they'll pick you up on the smallest thing.

They're going to try to talk to the various diesel mechanics they know, and see if they can get us mates rates on the job. May not save much, but it's a start.

Chances are, we may have to look at just buying another car, which would be a pain. Especially since Sharon's was really good.

You could always use your looks for money? Yes? No?
