Default I get my baby back! :( Sad update :(

Well i'm still getting it back... but unfortunately it won't be as easy as i thought. I went to look at the car today, it'* at a little hick repair shop. The drivers side front lower balljoint came out of it'* socket, which in turn pulled out the axle. The fender'* kind of dinged up too. There'* a huge scrape/dent in the passenger front door. It'* filthy all over, and the upholstry is drawn on. Cig burns abound, headliner has been ripped out, radio'* gone. Front facia is split apart and the turn signal is pushed in. Front drivers rim is bent. No idea how it runs, i don't have any keys yet... Needless to say i'm quite sad... but she can be brought back to life. It'* not dead yet.

I hope you aren't taking it back and giving his/her money back.

Yes this is now the 3rd time i'm getting it back. No i'm not giving her money, she offered it to me. It just needs a little TLC, but before it was a solid $700 car now it'* tops a $400 car. I don't even know who would want it. But we'll see how it goes. It basically needs a whole interior now.
