Default Farewell, Rex

Well, my uncle'* having to get rid of the WRX. It'* having electrical problems, and the local (local, yeah right) just wants to give us the runaround. It is a 90 mile round trip drive. You have to schedule an appointment to get it fixed, and they only want to schedule them when my uncle'* working. We tried to trade it in for an 06 STi, but they only wanted to give him $18500 for a mint 05 with 20K on the clock. We'll be taking the stereo out here pretty soon, and she'll prolly be gone shortly after that. Sucks, too, b/c I love that car (not as much as mine, of course) and both me and him have a lot of work in it. He said he wants to get some old "beater" car, as he calls it, b/c his cars get a lot of wear and tear (hence the Neon). I'll try and get him in a 3800. Still sad to see an otherwise great car go.

(sorry, couldn't help it )
that'* a shame, it'* funny that it'* an electrical problem, because most Japanese cars are so simple/crude, it would seem that nothing electrical could happen to it! Get him in a SSEi, and he'll be hooked.

I'd love to get him in a SSEi, I'm sure he'd love one. He really likes my car. No one around here is ever selling any SSEis, and if they do, it'* probably totally ragged out.

He seems to like smaller cars, get him a used GTP, or L67 Impala SS.

The Neon is actually my aunt'*, but he does prefer the smaller cars. No one selling Impalas around here, and he doesn't like the looks of the GP. Oh well, we'll figure something out.
