What I need is....

a miracle...what I need is you!! (whoa, 80's flashback)

Nah, seriously though...I could use something. Front upper and lower ball joints and an exhaust system for a 1989 Honda Civic (base, 4sp...why yes, Momma can drive a stick thank you very much). Anyone got one they want to get rid of? Really, I need 'em...bad. The Honda is parked until we can get her patched which means that Momma and the family is without transport. Well, there is my mother...but do I REALLY want to depend on her for the next bit...nah, didn't think so.

Go get a car, you says? Sure, why not...'cause I don't feel the need to mess with MO laws only to turn around and do it again when we go wherever we are going. Besides, the old girl (aka The Honda...not me) is still kickin' butt on the road. She just needs a little TLC is all. Plus the little red nugget (again, not me) gets something like 35mpg at last figure...I really, really can't beat that.

So, transportationless I be...for a bit. We'll get her patched before the end of November (I hope!!) but I'd love to not have to fork over $500 to do it...I have enough $$ going elsewhere as it is this month and not a bit to spare...sigh.

Commiserate with me?

Sure wish I could help. I could do the labor if I was closer!

Did it MY way said...

I have a friend that has the same year & model. He would not trade it for a new one. 300k plus and still runs strong. Good luck finding the parts. Wish I could help.

HJ~ Awwww, thanks!

Mabe~ Labor is not a problem, lol. If I can't do it, Pops can. I'm not one of those helpless types...Daddy taught me well!

DiMw~ I'd love to say she's mine, but she's belongs to Dad...I'd keep her forever if I could! Found the parts for it but danged if I ain't gonna have to spend that $500 anyway!
