Day One

March 13th, 2011 at 08:51 pm

This blog is to hold myself accountable, track my progress and hopefully inspire others.

I have one car broke down in another city and the other vehicle is bleeding me dry with gas cost. The 96 Miata overheated ad had to be towed. I have a wrecker bill of $150 and whatever repairs it takes to get it running. The first shop believes it needs a new motor at a total cost of about $2000. The car is not worth that much. The second shop stated they would look at it for free and they believe it probably only needs new heads. I am going to dolly the Miata home and let the second shop look at it. If the repairs are doable it would pay off in gas saving by the end of the year.

    Really unpleasant situation. Two cars, but no one drives. Maybe it`s better to sell them and buy one good?
