Time to take a step back from your life and evaluate. If you couldn't afford insurance or tires, you should've already sold your expensive vehicle to get into a better state.

Sell your overly expensive vehicle parts and buy something like a 93 civic until you're in better financial condition.
I agree with this post. Drive a beater until you have the house purchase behind you and then re-evaluate. Personal finances change a lot (generally for the better) with your first house purchase. You may find you have extra cash for a toy, or are strapped in which case you'll be glad to have the cheap commuter anyway.
