Junkie Car Club

My car with 270K miles is terminally ill. The transmission died yesterday and it is probably not worth a $2000 rebuild on a Dodge with that many miles.

I still qualify for the Junky Car Club, though, with my other car, a 1994 Plymouth Grand Voyager with 179K miles. Best of all the headliner is beginning to come down.

By the way, 2 weeks ago, my wife's sister and brother-in-law and our pastor gave us their old 1999 Honda Oddessy. It is like a Cadillac to us, even with 157K miles. It has all the bells and whistles and probably runs smoother today than my Dodge and Plymouth Minivans did new. Praise God. He had the timing all worked out.

I also gave my old 1990 Bronco II to a teenager who had just wrecked his car. It needs a head replaced and as a bonus he now qualifies for the Junkie Car Club.
