Alex's dad called on Thursday night to tell him that he was going to be in town on Friday and he would take him to CarMax and buy a new car! This is a pretty big relief for all of us. The Lincoln has been leaking oil all over the street and it's automatic inflater thingies had stopped doing there thing, which led to a lot of bottoming out, which in turn led to more oil on the street. :p
So, he came home with a 2008 Toyota Yaris with 6,000 miles on it! Congratulations Alex!
