Goodbye dear WMD



So we figured it was finally time for a "new" 2nd car. The Ford Tempo, which we lovingly refer to as the WMD (weapon of mass destruction!), is just not performing like we would have hoped. We bought it 4 yrs ago and even then it was a piece of you-know-what. It is a 1990 and we've dumped a good $2000 bucks into it for things like breaks, a transmission, windshield wipers, etc. And still the emergency break doesn't work, if you're driving in the snow you can only go about 5mph if you want to stay alive, and you have to hold the key forward the whole time you're driving or else it will pop back and stop (bad ignition switch I think)!! Oh and did I mention I got pulled over in it because one of the headlights is out and then after that I ran out of gas!! I love this car!!! So after that night I told Jerrod I never wanted to drive it again and he started a serious search for a new-to-us vehicle that could hold the whole family if need be and had 4 wheel drive. He finally found something he wanted and thanks to a little loan from my parents (which I promise we'll pay back!) he has found what he was looking for! So our lovely wmd is up for grabs with the asking price starting at $300. Don't all jump at once cause I want to stress the fact that if a loved one will be driving it you might want to reconsider!!! It got J where he needed to go, most of the time, for the past 4 years and during the summer months when the roads are really dry it's not so bad!!!!! Hahahahahahha

I'll buy it if you deliver it to Ellensburg. Don't even try to hide it, when someone takes it away, tears will well up.

Wow, sounds like a real winner! I think we'll pass though. :)

Ahhh...just seeing that car brings back memories of the Madison Park parking lot! Good luck selling it! You'll have to keep us posted on what new car #2 will be!

If you can't sell it, maybe a junk yard will buy it from you for parts.

Yeah for a new car! That is good you've gotten 4 years out of it. I felt sad when we sold our 1987 Nissan Stanza in Rexburg. There is something special about cars with character.

Luckily, ahem, I mean... Unfortunately we are not in the market for a new car. ;)

Oh...nobody knows better than me what it is like to "let go" (kicking & screaming) to a special vehicle no matter how messed up it is..let's see hmmm over the years probably about 8 (including the 1st Cryslar that talked--"You're door is ajar" & many more sayings :-) :-). Ask Jon--he had it for awhile in college!

I totally remember that car! So sad that it's time to move on. I am sure the next car will bring just as many good memories though!
Here is how you link:
when you are writing a new post there is a little 'world/earth' in the tool bar (by the font choice, size, color, spelling check, ect). Write your word (for example; 'here') then highlight it and click on the world. It will have you enter the website that you want linked. Enter it and click 'enter.' your word 'here' should now be linked. wow, how confusing did I make that? Also, now that we're in Blackfoot i would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see you! i was thinking along the lines of a 51st ward lunch lady reunion...are you in?
