My car is old. The gearbox just started going out. I have gears 1,3, and 5 and 2, and 4 are hit and miss, as of yesterday.
I could live with 1,3, and 5 but reverse is also going out. It is harder to get by without R.
It means I must be very careful how and where I park.
I have been saving as much money as possible because my car is old.
I either have to repair it or buy another. Soon.
It will break my heart to part with those old car.
I may keep it and repair it over time. And buy another.
I have my eye on one possible purchase.
