Fix everything

I read a post in the blog Car Lust a few months back about a guy with an old Mercury that needed work. Ordinarily, he would have just replaced the car given it's age. But with the economy on the rocks, he decided to bite the bullet and fix the old car.

I'm sitting in the waiting room of my car shop now having just made the same decision. My 2002 Caravan isn't worth much these days. We were seriously considering replacing it later this year or next year. But, you know, it still runs very well and it didn't need too much in the way of work to make it right. So, I wound up saying the same thing to my mechanic that the guy in Car Lust said-fix everything. I'm not denying that I made this decision because I still don't feel too good about the economy. It's not the first such decision I've had to make in the last few years. I think it's the right move though.
