This was my Mom's old car. (I had offered $4000 to my parents for her. since snowball had died on me. The agreed, and brought her to New Orleans. Dad wanted to gamble at Harrah's, and had hit big on a let-it-ride table for a straight flush, winning $15,000. They just handed me the keys when that happened.) Total $ Spent on her $5000 + (Radiator, AC work, Hub replacement, Tires, Electrical work, Stuck spark plug extraction) Biggest problem she ever game me: Several overheats. Later we found out her radiator was chock full of cat-hair. I stuck a new one in her and she was fine. The big killer was when I tried to replace her spark plugs myself. The metal blot had sheared off, leaving the plug in the engine. We had to tap and die it out.)
