Ya, I'm debating many options right now Chet, I'm leaning towards just buying mama a new car and then having her car be the new ride for our daughter, mama is coming due for something new...  :-\
Kinda what I did when I got the Jetta.

Yep, the $6500 is for new parts Rob, they said if I wanted to go used parts it would probably be about half that, but even at $3k to fix it's just not worth it to me, I'm gonna move on... bettter to put a grand in my pocket and move on IMO then take $3k out of my pocket to fix it...
 
If you want to buy it as it is Rob give me a call, but do it soon because I'm gonna be making some calls today to try and unload it fast... The title is clean and clear because no insurance is involved. You up for a project? I know you have the space.  ;)

No thanks Jay, I've got enough projects sitting on shelves. ;)  Plus, Volvo isn't my cup of tea.

Well I sold the Volvo today for $850 as is...  >:(
 
Had $12k into it...  :'(   :banghead:
 
 
 
I think I'm getting the short end of the stick here, somehow I'm now buying mama a new car and her current car will now be the car for our daughter to drive...  ??? :-\ :-[

Well, that sucks. It definitely did it's job well though. I believe I'd look for another. Damn safe cars.

Bummer deal there Jay for certain.  At $12K, you should have sprung for full coverage.  Good thing I didn't buy it though, I picked up a new project today.  Shop is getting full, had to kick out one of the trailers tonight. ;)

Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

It's a sparkling (metallic) red 2004 RX-8 GT model (ABS, Traction control, Stability control, 18" wheels/45 series tires w/ only 6K miles, 6 speed manual, full leather, heated seats, auto adjusting Xenon projector headlights, electric power steering, power everything really).  Really sweet ride!   ;D

Now I'm completely out of shelf space.   ::)

2012 Camry SE, some good deals right now before the 13's come out, nothing local though so it has to be shipped to us so that we could get all the options we wanted and color combo, yep black;D
 
It's suppose to arrive in about a week, at least I can cross off shopping for mama's Christmas present.  :) :chugbeer:
