Default R.I.P. Bonnie

Call it.
Took my brother to pick up his Avenger from the shop yesterday, and was making my way back home, when some idiot decided to make a left turn from the travel lane instead of the turn lane. Pulled to the right to go around him, stepped on the gas, and the engine died.
Engine is blown, siezed, again.
Decided that it'* not worth putting the money into it to fix the motor when it has so many other problems(radiator leak, torque converter, etc.). I'll miss driving it, but I sure won't miss paying for it.
So, in the next few days, I'll be deciding whether the Bonnie gets sold, parted, or scrapped.
Please hold off on any parts requests, as I already have an offer to possibly buy the car for parts. The service rep I talked to said he needed a parts car for his Park Avenue.
If not, I'll put a request thread in the Buy/Sell/Trade section.

So the search for my next car begins. I already know what I want, if I can get it. I'm looking for a 97+ Camaro RS, with the Series2. They're cheap(average $4-5,000), easier on insurance than the V8 version, and I can use all the motor mods that INTENSE, and ZZP have available.


R.I.P.

I'm not exactly sobbing.
I should have called her Lady MacBeth, she spent the last year of her life stabbing me in the back.
She was fun to drive when she was running well, though.
All in all, I think I'll miss the cantankerous bitch.
