I miss my tracker.
I only got $325 for it as scrap.

I should have just ran it into a tree !
That would have been more satifying. lol

Hows the P5 PCB? Im up in Toronto and having had a street parking space outside for 10 years, my car has been besieged by rust. Im facing a $1000 repair bill this week to keep this thing on the road. I hate to part with the protege but it may be time for a new car.

Its nice to be able to keep these on the road for as long as we can. I have the yellow, so its a pretty rare sight these days. With the dark tinted windows, kids giggle and say it looks like bee colours. Any car this old is a rare sight in Tarannah these days actually...people love their NEW CARS in the 6ix.

Unfortunately I think the reality is, with the rust issues, you never know whats going to happen next, even when you make routine repairs. This is the point, for me, where its becoming a question of money to repair, or money into a new car.

Hope yours is still holding out.
