Yet another exercise in venting.

Anyone obscenely rich readers wanna throw us a couple of grand? The van's transmission is likely in need of replacement. We've got about five bucks.

I'm considering selling my old Honda station wagon for whatever I can get out of it and figure out getting to and from work later.

Could a full transmission flush help? I babied a car on its last legs transmission-wise for about 50,000 miles by doing several transmission flushes when I worked at the shop. The guys at the shop were constantly amazed by my car's ability to stay running, haha.

Stick one of those tip jar things on your blog, maybe we can all pitch in a few bucks to help. I will.

I'm sorry to hear of your car troubles. They always seem to appear at the worst time, don't they?

I wish you luck, and if I hit the jackpot on the lottery, I'll be mailing you enough to take care of that and more!

My brother-in-law drives a truck for a wrecking yard here. Rich people actually DO just have him haul off their former cars, sometimes after a minor fender bender, and sometimes because they just don't want to deal with selling their old cars. It's crazy; the sis and kids have always driven hoppin' nice cras that he picks up for $200....

Anything like that in your neighborhood, per chance? A decent, running car, for five bucks?
