I heart My Geo

I really do love my Geo. I just want to get that out there before I proceed. I got the estimate back on my little '94 Geo Prism's damage. $700 to replace the entire steering unit. Apparently when I was on the evil road, and I had my love tap, it bent the wheel, and I'd have a get an entirely new steering unit. After that was replaced, then they would have to realign it. BUT after all is said and done, it might have a bend in the frame that they wouldn't know about until after the afore mentioned is fixed. Which would mean another repair and another cost. If only I were rich...

I have come to a decision. I will repair it, but I think it's time to let my Geo go. *cue strings* I would rather have it go to a good home now, rather than wait until it's on its last leg. I can afford to get a new/used car at the moment, but once I'm a student, my finances will be tied. I will get my "I heart My Geo" t-shirt, drive my little car until I find another owner, then turn it in. It's a sad day folks. I feel like such a traitor.

I'm a nondriving axsexual celibate. No cars, no whining.

Well Gary, perhaps you live in a place where one can function without a car. However, I'm in the minimal public transportation, auto dependent, Midwest. We NEED our cars for survival.

Thanks for posting a comment on my blog. I keep the sources of my lyrics anonymous. I'm an unabashed plagiarist.

Gary - Keep it up, as long as it doesn't affect your conscience.
