Well i am past the college days, but in order to have a summer car (74 rx4) I have to pay the price of driving "cheap" cars in the winter. Actually we got 2 inches of snow last night... which makes working on cars in the great outdoors so much more fun. I have invested only about $500 canadian into this car so far (safety, buying it plates, previous repairs) however it may be worth it in the long run, is it worth adding a couple hundred dollars in repairs now. As long as it lasts till summer, doesnt really matter to me! I can take the time and money at that point if i feel the car will be good for next winter. I only have $500 left in my budget for this car through the winter (before clutch) So if anything else goes wrong i may be in trouble. I guess ill call today and get the prices for the parts to do the job right! Any other suggested things to check out before i burn my budget?
