So while the sks have been here we gave been borrowing my fiances parents minivan because we needed it with all 5 kids. Ive been driving my fiances car to and from work and hes been using the van. My car has been sitting. The sks go back Saturday so my fiance has been changing the oils and gassing up both the van and my car to be ready to give the van back. He discovered my transmission which I just paid 700$ to fix is bone dry. He says it looks like I need a new transmission....basically, more money than my car is worth.

So Im looking at picking up a car payment I cant afford on 10$/hr. Grrrrre

Have you looked on craigslist? You may be able to find something affordable on there.

I just dont know if its worth even paying for that and then finding someone to put it in and paying them the labor...its a 99 mustang with 190k miles on it and about a million other things about to fall apart at any moment. I was hoping to make it last another 6 months at least though til I was in a better place financially. Ugh.
