The problem is, the money we're getting for the car won't be enough to buy a new one. All we can hope for is a used one of the same model in halfway good condition.
I confess that thoughts of murder *have* intruded from time to time. That car was not only my mobility, it was my *tool*! I need it to go to conventions, to transport stuff, to do my job. Now it's dead. Killed. Smashed.
Is it very evil of me to wish to strangle my husband on the hood of my mangled Toyota? >.>
So we're looking for a used one. We'll see how that goes...
