Blast. Mark's car is still not done, nor is there any prospect of having it this weekend. In fact, our mechanic had to send it off to another shop. Farging piston.
Welcome to life with two geriatric autos. Neither Mark's car nor mine has all that many miles on it, particularly given the age of the cars. But when your NEWER car is from the mid-1990s, and it's 2009, you can pretty much expect to see parts occasionally break due to sheer age, I suppose.
Still... !*@^!@*^!@#. Doggone it.
