**** Cars!!

they always know when you get them paid for! Just gotta vent a bit. The Z has been paid off for 2 months now. The front rotors are warped (which I expected), 2 coils keep corroding at the electrode (eh MSD time), Already got the MSD wires and NGK plugs, hit a pothole and need some bad realignment, its developed a wierd vibration in the drivetrain somewhere, door hinge pin needs replacing which caused warping in the door which cause a previous repair work to crack, and now it looks like there is going to have to be some trans work. grrrrr I guess that 145k miles and regular track duty have finally taken their toll. Can't complain to much I guess its just a lot to swallow at one time.

Yep. My 2000 GMC has been paid off for a while. Last year was an expensive maintenance year, almost $3K including a transmission rebuild.

I'm still way ahead IMO - It can be frustrating sometimes

I feel for you and I hope that isn't true. I just paid off my GTO last fall.

My Grand Am did need about $600 of repair shortly after it was paid off. I'm dreading my wife's Malibu. It should be paid off later this year. It's already been a money pit.

Cars just have their ways of making sure we don't forget about them!
