My own opinion is that we should call it quits on her car ASAP (as of two years ago). I am perfectly happy to get her a much newer car.
My mad plan is this. I sell 20,000 copies of my next novel over the next four years. That's only 5,000 a year. Easy, right? LOL
Maybe we can get her a Mini, or even a Twizi, or a Fiat 500c, or a Corvette ZR1.
