Not sure what to do
The hubster's car is dying -- the mechanic has said he won't repair it anymore... Well he will repair it but says it needs enough work that it will be $1000 now and he sees more and more of these coming down the road in the very near future it will need a $400 repair and a couple $300 repairs... It is 12 years old and has 240,000 miles on it... It has done it's job. The problem is that with me not working we have no extra money for a car. The hubster wants a new(ish) car with the car payments that go with, I want an old POS that will last us a year or two and only cost $1000 or less. In 2 years my car will be paid off and I will be working and making $ and we will be in a better place to spend money. But this leaves us at an impasse - what do we do from here... Well this 1996 Lincoln mark 8 might be the answer it is cheap ($800) and it was the hubster's dream car when he was a kid... We are going to look on it tomorrow. Cross your fingers for me...
But in case it doesn't work out - do you have or know of a cheap reliable car for sale?
