Default Well I had to put her down...But have a replacement in mind!

For those of you that hadn't see my post on the low oil pressure issue....
the end came....

I been fighting a loosing battle since I got her....between title issues being a salvage car..
to Intake manifold blowing....along with taking out the rear head gasket....
Apparently this intake issue was there before i bought the car and before the crash..
The car sat for 1.5yrs prior to its repair and the coolant did its number on the bottom end.

The guy I bought it from has been great and bought it back from me....so Im out
nothing really execpt a nice looking bonnie....
Last picture on how I will remember her.....



I still got the bonnie fever and am going to look at this ...this week
1992 SSEi....the cursed white again...grey leather,pwr everything, sunroof,HUD and so on...
its got 130k on the OD and the supercharger was replaced 1.5yr ago...
Wish me luck...I hope to still be a REAL member of this clan...

Here is the potential ride....

Damn, spent all that money getting it fixed and POOF, its gone. I know the feeling. I spent at least 2500 on my car after the first accident including sounds and tint plus a car not and inssurance. OUCH, let me stop thinking about the past.

Sorry you had to let her go. :( I hope if you get this SSEi it will be hassle-free. Make sure to check it over well. Let us know how it goes.

I'm depressed.

Although with a perfect body and interior, I would have seriously considered putting a new engine in there.

Hi Fuddy,
There was only one issue....$$$ and that I could bail from it...
Right now is not a good time....just found out my wife is getting laid off from her job..
She has 2-3 weeks left...
We work opposite schedules to support our 4 kids and newly purchased house..

were VERY nervous right now.....so
I took my cake...ran...and need another 2500 dollar car QUICK....

But do agree...I hated to see it go....
