Fred is our 1992 Geo Prizm with Toyota design, Sweetheart's commuting car for 3 years. In February Sweetheart decided to let the local high school auto shop fix a head gasket oil leak and to bleed the brakes. After multiple weeks and phone calls, Fred returned home for about 12 hours at the beginning of April. Fred came back without the oil leak fixed, the brakes questionable, some of bolts on the engine block missing, a different battery than the original, and he sounded like a 747 airplane when on the road. That weekend we bought Finn, a 2001 Toyota Prius. All our cars have names.
Hurricane was telling his friend, Noah, about Fred
leaving and going to be a parts car at the scrapyard. Noah said, "So
Fred is now an organ donor?" We thought that would be a clever advertizing for a u-pull-it junk yard.
