  • It is with profound sorrow that I announce that my lengthy relationship with the used car has come to an end. My “Wee Beastie” has incurred at least half of its purchase price in repair bills. Despite the nature of the repair the amount due to the mechanic has consistently amounted to $1500.00; give or take a dollar.
