So, today I get a phone call from the junkyard....the pickup of peril, which, exploded, burned and was towed away to oblivion...is fixed(?!).
I had no idea it was in any way salvageable.
I dropped out of school because of my lack of transportation.
I just managed to get another car.
This is ever so slightly annoying.
OTOH, I've got the vehicle back which is good. (40mpg rocks! :) and 600 bucks seems really cheap for a ressurection.
