Well I get a call yesterday that the Bonneville ( now in Renée'* possession) was making alot of noise. She called to pick up the white parts car and wouldn't tell me why. I got it out of her that it is something in the engine, possibly blown. Today I talk to her and I find out that the reason she really needed that parts car was that while at work, someone hit her and screwed up the entire front end on the car while it was parked in a parking lot and just left. So she needed the whole front light assembly and rad support etc.. and the hood.

Not sure what else was damaged but at this point I haven't had possession of that car since august. Of course she has a problem and still calls me to try and help her.

If you own either car, go sign over the title to her, and be rid of both the cars and her. Tell her it'* her problem now, and then breathe in a nice breath of fresh "c-ya" air.

Your new GF is a dramatic improvement anyway, and I'm sure that you'll ultimately move up to another Bonneville anyway. This can be your ticket to moving from the 87-91 models up to the 92-99!

I gotta agree with the consensus...................

Nut up and tell her it'* no longer your problem,if you don't she'll just keep coming around when a problem arises.

Well shortly after getting back from WCBF and seeing she let her new BF drive the grey car, I gave her a week to find her won insurance and signed the car over to her. The white car is still technically under my name, but it was pulled off the road cause the frame was rusting out. So I had no use for the white car so it was to go with the grey car. She didn't have any room for the car but right now she had no choice but to take it and strip it for parts.


That is just one more thing that I no longer have around here tying me to her. Now to deal with the rest of the stuff like furniture and appliances, but that will wait till spring since it is in storage and it is cold and snowing already.

On a side note, she called me asking me for the old coil pack that was originally on the white car. I had converted over to the new style coils. Her bf said that the ICM was fried on the new style and needed to put the old one back on. I have no clue what he did but it was working fine when I parked it.

Sign over the title to the white one to her. You don't want it coming back to haunt you! (Like she does.)
