Think of this car as the devil you know, vs. going out there and getting one you don't know.
You KNOW what is wrong with your car, and it sounds to me it'* a bunch of minor stuff that can be fixed within a weekend.
Our cars are not getting any younger, so you have to expect some things will need to be freshened up.
Sounds to me that the only major cosmetic problem is that spot. I'll bet you and a buddy can puddy it up, sand and prime and have a paint guy shoot it for a minimal amount of $$.
Trust me, get it all cleaned up and replace those little things, and you'll be back on the cloud with your car.
I was thinking crazy thoughts a few days ago about mine. Selling it and getting somethind different, then I took it for a good car wash, got it all cleaned up, mashed the throttle so hard those crazy thoughts are firmly planted into the back of my brain, and are not allowed to come out...
Can I suggest a set of gold Crosslace rims for you car? I had the Aerolites too, but the gold on green seems to work real nice.
If you do, go for the golder coloured ones, not the ones that are more of a copper shade. (You could always paint them and clear coat them, that'* what I did for minimal $$)
Good luck, Jacob.
