ike: longevity of an automobile's running life is a large portion contributed to owner maintenance and care. my old cavalier ran like a top and even looked nice well beyond 100k, my pontiac minivan was great when I got rid of it at 170K, still see it driving around town as a taxi now.
my nissan 200sx was a piece of CRAP, always broke in some way or another, and rusty.
my saturn was great minus some owner induced mechanical failures
my new year started off OK I guess, I spent xmas till now sick, relaly sick last week, now its just sore throat lots of coughing and drainage.....
spent NYE with the girl at a hotel, just us, so no blue balls here
but now shes back to living 2 hours away for a week, then she moves an hour away, but I wont see for a week after that, distance is so annoying in relationships!
other than that things are alright I guess
