Shall we toast the death of my car?
It's a goner. Engine siezed up; seems the oil pump went out. No warning light,nothing.
I own a $2500 paperweight.
....and there goes the savings.
Love ya!!;( :shrug:

4. Thanks.
We..actually have some money to get another car,but it had been saved for something that I've wanted for a long, long time....and it's kinda heartbreaking to know that I'm going to have to probably give that up.
Ah, well. I will get over it, I'm sure!
:hug:

5. You have no idea how right you are.

I *Just* came into a large sum of money. Sure, it's great I can now probably get another car, but I had saved this for something I've wanted for over ten years now.
It is disappointing, but I'm sure I'll get over it.
Thanks. :hug:

I have some money saved..but it was planned for something else.
Am hoping for a miracle...we will see.
I am looking for the lesson here.
