The Man on the Brink™ is currently looking for a new (used) car. If you or a friend, or mother or uncle or neighbor is currently looking to get rid of their car, please let me know. I'm not picky, but it would absolutely great
if it had air conditioning. It's hard to be Mr. Classy Man on the Brink™ when you show up places sweaty as a mug.
Unfortunately I think the brake system in the Volvo, which I've known for about a year is on it's way completely out on the front left axle, is audibly starting to wear through, and the estimation was $600-plus for all the componenture. Doesn't seem like it would make sense to repair it.
So there you have it.
