Shields Up!

The window is fixed. Now it goes down and then back up again. Can you imagine??!

Total cost for everything done to the car in the past week is in the $350.00 neighborhood. More than I wanted to spend, but less than I feared. Next up, the 90k mile checkup. Yucko. I’m going to have to figure out if I can do that one in pieces, if the going rate is over $500 for a 1992 Nissan Maxima. Which I assume it is.

I can’t complain, I haven’t really put money into the car since I got it two years ago. You can’t count the $2000 in bodywork from when the guy backed into me, because, well, that guy backed into me. I didn’t do it. It wasn’t normal wear and tear for the grill to be ripped off. At least I hope it wasn’t.

I wouldn’t mind getting another minivan, because I still really really really miss my old one. But how can I justify it when this car, while older, runs so darned well and doesn’t come with a coupon book of monthly payments?
