Orpheus successfully fetched. He looks ugly as hell, but he runs without worry that he'll veer off to one side or that the wheel will snap off. Since the accident, he makes a funny sound. I suppose there will still have to be a new car in my future, but at least i've salvaged him for awhile. He may be a piece of shit car, but he's my piece of shit.

Heh, your icon is particularly apt yet again...

Glad he's still alive, even if "he'll never play piano again", or whatever the car equivalent is...did you ever explain to me why that name was chosen, by the way? Or is it obvious, and I'm just stupid? We both know I know exactly who Orpheus was etc etc, but am I missing something or is there a detailed explanation for it?

Anyhoo, drive safe and avoid dogs named Pluto crossing the road... ;P

When i got him at college, most of the people i knew didn't have cars, so they always wanted lifts somewhere or other. So he was the car desired by all, therefore, Orpheus.

i am consistently amazed by how much life and use you have gotten out of that little car. he may not be as good as new, now, but damn -- my little Battank was twice the size of Orpheus, and didn't survive a relatively minor collision with a non-SUV. when the time comes, we shall definitely retire Orpheus will the full honors he has earned.

Hey, you know squishyent still hasn't sold his Bitchin' Camaro. Sadly, I cannot recall how much dough he was asking for it.

Yar, he wants a bit more for it than i have to spend, but the more pressing issue is i reckon i couldn't afford to insure it and spend gas on it ;)
