My moment this week was having to put our 1998 Ford Escort out to pasture. Here she is in her hay day.
She was a good car for many years, but lately she's been a money pit. The last straw was the fuel pump that needed to be replaced. Another $500 repair. Why is it that whenever you take the car to the shop it costs $500??? Every time!!! So, goodbye old friend. Hopefully they will be able to salvage some parts before they send you to your final resting place.
