january 9, 2012 i replaced my broken down, stationary 1998 mazda 626 with a 1992 nissan sentra for which i paid $100 to eric g. when i bought it and described what i wanted to do with it eric said that i would have been better off buying a different car because i would end up putting more money in the sentra. his estimate was originally $1,000 but he then raised it to $1,500 to $2,000. so this page is simply a list of what i want to do to “fred” (the name of ever vehicle i have ever owned), what i have done to him, and how much it has cost. my goal is to get “fred” into respectable shape while proofing eric wrong.
what i want/need to do
- replace front exhaust tube (rusted out)
- new tires for front and rear (basically bald)
- replace power steering pump
- general maintenance – fred needs a tune up
here’s a link to every post about fred.
