Had a bad weekend....

Went up to bear mountain with my lady, coming home cracked the radiator on my saab, 2 tows, a hotel stay, new radiator from saab, which is 2 hours from my house, 2 trains, the bodies exhibit in NYC, they fixed the radiator this morning, started it, needs 2 head gaskets, All out of warranty. I am just venting. Going up there with my trailer and truck to pick it up to figure out whether to fix the head gaskets or just change the motor. AHHHHHHH.

The sun'll come out
Tomorrow
Bet your bottom dollar
That tomorrow
There'll be sun!
Just thinkin' about
Tomorrow
Clears away the cobwebs,
And the sorrow
'Til there's none!
When I'm stuck a day
That's gray,
And lonely,
I just stick out my chin
And Grin,
And Say,
Oh
The sun'll come out
Tomorrow
So ya gotta hang on
'Til tomorrow
Come what may
Tomorrow!
Tomorrow!
I love ya
Tomorrow!
You're always
A day
A way!

Did you hit something? By the list of other cars you have, do you really need that car fixed right now?

If anybody hit anything, it was Blink hitting his head. He's singing showtunes from Annie.

That thing sounds like it is falling apart. Would it be worth buying an aftermarket warranty? This is specifically why I made a point to get one with the Boxster.
Good Luck!

That is horrible.
My mother in law went home to Colombia this weekend, so I have a home sick wife.

Busted radiator or wife who cries all day...

They both are leaking water.
