Default Go Cart replaces Bonnie

My car'* Ball joint is nasty, the tire tech shook it visibly for me while i was 15-10 feet away. So i drove it the rest of the week, and after seeing some of the newly born potholes, decided that it might not be safe.

Give mom a call, insurance is fired up, and here we are.



4a Toyota motor, 3 pedals, it'* a rebadged Corolla. Body is great, There'* a repainted section on the trunk under the plate, some door sills are finally showing rust, and then there'* my accident on the front. Can't kill it, it just gets sick every now and then. 144K miles, This thing is a go cart with safety glass. I've driven another 88 with an auto, and it'* nothing compared to the Shifting fun/performance.

Bill Wanna Race?

Basically the left front tire doesn't stay with the alignment. It'* failed on a member here recently and he had to go get checked out at a hospital.

I'm not going to drive around on mankato'* roads (some look like swiss cheese already with our warm/cold cycles) and wear my tires. I also don't want to risk the severe damage, major suspension components would be damaged, the fener would be fubar'd, etc.
