Price of Car

So it was $740

A friend called by chance.
I was paying for the car so did not pick up
I went to start it.
I put it in gear and nothing.
It didn't go.
I called my friend back.
He came and he pulled me home with a rope.

The licence fees were $250

A shifter for $100

Those were innocent times.

No the shifter was not the problem.

It was the transmission $332.
A new battery,$40
Fresh oil, filter and transmission fluid, $100
Wires are sticking out thru the rubber on the front tires. $250 gets 4 tires.
I mount two at $15 each.
I don't want to waste the two good tires so I get two spare rims for $150, eventually to mount the other two new tires on.

The tires got worn from a bad wheel bearing. I got one for $30.

The engine was vibrating from bad mounts. I got three new mounts for $170

The spare tire was missing, I got one for $75.
The front headlights were burned out and the plastic was cloudy. I got new ones for $145.

The passenger mirror is broke off.
I get a driver's side and passenger mirrorfor a hundred. The new set of mirrors fold in, where the original set was ridgid.
