I'm soooooooooooooo pissed off.
1) I found a nice, cheap parts donor car with working engine for my Range Rover, located only 50km away and did I mention it was really cheap, too? I
called today to ask when I can come and get it, and the seller told me that the car has ... vanished. It was stored on some old guys yard, and said
old guy had died recently and his kids had cleaned out the house & the yard. Likely the car has already been scrapped already, who knows. Now my
second option is to buy an engine from a guy who lives about 500km away and wants 1.5x the money for the engine than the car would've been. Plus
2) The car I was planning to buy for my commute beater was diagnosed with a blown head gasket so I let someone else have it... I wanted a working,
reliable car, and this would've been a good bargain, too.
3) My Subaru managed to blow its radiator header tank and is leaking coolant madly all over the engine room. Now the only working car in the family is
my wifes VW which doesn't have a tow hook - and I would've needed to tow a trailer this weekend!
Now I'm gonna :w: and
and tomorrow I'll be
