My intention was to put a new engine in Rusty and get him repainted, but since I had spent the money I intended to do that on frivolous stuff like rent and food, I had to change my plan. The plan now is to sell Rusty, drive The Beast as a beater till the doors fall off, and later get the Hooptie repainted.

I did get a great deal on a low mileage, high MPG 4wd, with a low interest rate, and I didn't have to drive a couple hundred miles to get it. I felt it was the right vehicle at the right price, so I jumped on it.
You put rent and food before a repaint? You need to get your priorities straight!!

I know, putting rent & food as priorities may seem strange, but that's me.
