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.
Thanks for the practical suggestion.
I was in a decent state with insurance and tires until I changed careers and entered minimum wage training. I'm now in the second month of a new (performance based pay) career where I should have no problem affording insurance or tires.
February is a slow month where I'll make little more than min wage, but March should be full on good pay... I won't really know what my finances are like until well into March.
I have this borrowed Civic to drive for the time being, do you really think I should invest money into another Civic when I could as easily put that money into a shell and labor?
