R.I.P. Ghetto Ride...

Today we got some very troubling news...

Jackie's car, a 1995 Chevy Corsica, died (this isn't a picture of it, but it's exactly like this one...). On Thursday of last week, we discovered that it was leaking gasoline, only to find out it had a problem with it's fuel line. Scott Parsons, our mechanic, said that it could be cheap ($300) or expensive ($1200), but they wouldn't know until they started working on it. We gave the go-ahead to start the process, shooting for $300 and not the $1200. Shortly after the Corsica went under the mechanic's knife, she was pronounced dead.

Not only was the gas line totally corroded. But the gas lines were intertwined with the brake lines and would need to be replaced as well. So the $1200 wouldn't have covered it.

It was a sad day... but we knew it was coming. 1 1/2 years ago Scott gave her 2 years to live... so she lived out her time. She will be delivered to the junk yard on Wednesday for those who would like to pay their final respects.

P.S. For a fun video of Ghetto Ride at the height of her glory, check out THIS video. Enjoy!! Now we officially don't own either of these vehicles...
