    That's not that terrible. I had to scrap a BMW because the engine decided it had enough after 50,000 miles.

    Wow. Sports cars are a b$tch sometimes, aren't they?

    Worth it. ;)

    Especially if you only have two usable seats. You never get asked to drive anyone anywhere.

    And replacing it probably required half the car to be disassembled.

    Yep... the car was 2-3 years old, and the new motor cost nearly as much as the brand new car entirely.

    Well, I hope you get a huge amount of enjoyment from it, and get in a lot of driving time:) Life is for living, hmmn?

    Absolutely! Someday I want to take some racing lessons.

    Not in that car, if an engine replacement costs into 5 figures.

    No, I'd want to buy a higher-mileage less expensive one, one that I can justify all of the hackery necessary to put in a roll cage and four-point harness and dry sump oil system.

    yeah, or do what a friend of mine did, and build one from scratch. He was able to add a special place just for his bassoon case. I presume the bassoon doesn't go racing:eek:o_O

    Cycling today, up a long and winding trail. The view was fantastic. And yesterday, DH started learning slow fox. He was looking a little poleaxed, so I said, come on, let's just dance what I've shown you, and wowee, it felt amazing. So very very happy to be alive and doing these things:)

    I just had someone ask me last night for an extremely large sum of money, similar to the amount @cornutt had for his car to be fixed. Still not sure what to think about it...

    Gift or loan? I only give a loan that I can afford to turn into a gift should that become necessary.

    That's what I'm afraid of considering they already owe me a smaller amount of money...

    Sure I can afford it, but honestly a Caribbean beach vacation is more appealing.

    For me, if they had borrowed and then paid back smaller amounts, then probably.

    If they still owe the smaller amount? Nope. Not until it is paid back.

    Do they have a BMW engine to put up as collateral?

    I don't own a BMW anymore, so it has little use to me. :rofl:
