Stupid car

In order to make easier for me to go to lesbian chat (and spend more time with the lesbian grad student) as well as going to a few friends houses I decided to go get my car fixed as it had finally failed the smog check. The mechanic wants to replace the catalytic converter and clean the air intake, for about $450.

Then I have to get it retested, and then pay for the registration.

Why don't you just throw it away and get a new one? :) Well, I mean, like a hybrid or an EV. What about flexcar?

1/3rd of the polution created by a car is produced by it's manufacture. Also the occasional $400 repair bill is far less than the $20,000 to buy a hybrid.

As for flexcar, it's good for the occasional use, but I've been using more than is really cost effective. I may still use them periodically during the summer as their car has A/C.

I have a very reliable/honest mechanic in Pasadena if you want a second opinion.
