I love my Third Bull and do all I can to keep it running. It's paid for, good gas mileage, fun to drive, cheap to insure, and with regular maintenance, reliable.
It's been diagnosed with a timing cover leak. Ford wants $2400 to fix it, so obviously, I won't be going there. (I'm aware this is not an easy repair and requires the engine to be pulled.) Hopefully I'll find a local shop that can do it for less. Meanwhile I'll monitor oil consumption.
I don't want another used car; I know all the work I've had done on this one and it runs well. I can't really afford a new one and don't want payments.
I don't mind paying for regular maintenance items - tires, struts, oil changes, filters etc. It's worth it to keep the car going.
What greater freedom than not knowing where you're going or why ?
I drive way too fast to worry about cholesterol.
If you know where you're going, it's travel. If you don't, it's an adventure.
All I need is coffee and mascara.
