Go here, and sign up. Again.

There's a small link to the right of the word of the day, under the definition.

I have one of those, except it's not a vintage Beemer, like the one in the picture.

We have one too. My wife spotted it up on the lift this afternoon, presumably getting the exhaust system welded.

We made the perhaps foolish decision to put $3k into a $1.5k car yesterday. Love that car and want to get another 100k miles out of it. I took it in with a 16 item repair list, and they added two items to my list. It's OK though, we talked it over and took about 6 items off my list of 16.

Quite often it's the right decision to spend money on them. It's not whether to spend $3k on a 1.5k car, it's whether to spend $3k on this car or $20k on another car.

It was time to do the timing belt. That's a big one and is making a statement. So you might as well do some other needed things.

Timing belt... That's one of those things that you can't function without, and is cheaper to fix before it breaks. And where it lives in a lot of engines makes the replacement of others stuff "in the neighborhood" much cheaper than if you had to make a special trip for just that part. They are often equally old..

Yeah. The timing belt, or "are you feeling lucky, punk?"

We maybe could have gotten 5 more years out of it, or maybe 5 more days. 20 year old car with 125k miles. But having to call a tow truck from god knows where by the side of some road when the engine suddenly dies and won't start up again regardless of how much I crank it would suck. And then towing it to some unknown rip-off shop and having it be kind of urgent to get it fixed in a hurry. Maybe having to rent a car to get home. Buy a hotel room for a couple days while they do the work. Ugh. I feel like they have made movies about this kind of scenario. And then I meet the wife of some powerful business man in the one bar in the little desert town where I broke down, and after having an affair with her, everyone wants to kill me. But I can't leave because my car is still in the damn shop.

Much better to do it now.

I'll say this for you, glatt. You do not lack imagination.

I like that about you.
