  • I had this happen to me in Billings, MT. I am from Colorado and drove up there to see a friend for a couple weeks. Well my truck broke down and a long story short, I negotiated with the shop for payments then when I couldn't do that I just signed the title over to them. Oh and I ended up having to live there for about 6 months while this all happened.

  • It all depends on your value of your car dh says if it means something to you then it is worth it. I know you struggle to make ends meet. If the car is kind of a classic then it is well worth the money you sock into it. You have to look at it this way can you afford not too and get another car probably not so it is wise probably to just keep fixing up the one you have for now untilyour situation gets better.
