*several thousand in fines and back payments to retrieve said car*

And do you have insurance? "uh... no"
*paying the insurance for the past five years*

"Any chance you have a few bucks to spare? I don't have enough gas to drive home."
"We're having to move. Dog ate the apartment. No security deposit etc"
*send off $1000 again*
...and so on and so forth.

Not holding my breath.
But he's a lovely boy. Kind and giving and honorable and loved by all. I guess that's more important.
This weeks child expenses: $300 for tire, fixed tie rod, and alignment. I figured it was cheaper than a funeral.
