I feel your pain. I bought my Nissan after the third transmission rebuild in my T-bird in as many years back in 2000, feeling pretty guilty at the time. But you know what, I'm glad I did. The way I look at it, if I didn't get a reliable and economical car, I would have had to trade the Tbird for something else by now. It needs an engine and has a laundry list of other problems. I love the T-Bird, and I will get it back on the road shortly, but I can take my time and have fun doing it, because I don't need to depend on it anymore. And the best part about owning a little import is that there is no chance of me falling in love with it. Nothing feels better than taking my T-bird out for a ride after banging gears in my 5-speed econo-box all day.
what kind of car did you get, out of curiosity?
