09:05 am: Car Woes

Our wonderful gray van needs more done in repairs than we paid for it.

We do not have the means to repair or replace it at this particular time.

If anyone knows of a very inexpensive minivan, let us know. ;-)

you may wish to talk to susan (ladyguen) aka lady guendalina's closet... she has some experience with vans and station wagons.. she may have better advice.

as to me? i keep forgetting where people live, but DO check craigslist.. find out who does pre purchase inspections near you...and if you have to JUNK the old van? strip it first. especially if the tires are good.

Jagi, Goodwill auctions vehicles once a week. To anybody. If you have someone who knows about cars, you can look them over beforehand.

I have a friend, an Anglican priest, who has done this successfully several times:

This is just locations.

I have a coworker that swears by ebay. He's more than once flown off to somewhere random to drive a car from someplace else back here for someone.

If you go that route, I can probably hook you up with a buddy pass to get to the car.

I'll keep that in mind, thanks!

Right now, there are no funds to replace it with...but that will hopefully change. ;-)
