    you are doing the right thing by taking care of your family,,you can get another car later..and you can use the experience you gained on your first one to build an even better one,,,glad to see someone with their priorities straight,,,

    its just a car remember that!!! you are doing the right thing
     
  4. There will be another car for you. Don't sweat that at all.

    the dude that bought it WILL get it together, so you can visit with it one day.

    Sometimes you have to do things you don't want to do to help the family get by.

    It could be selling something you love, or taking a job you hate.

    Good on you for being a man.

    I would sell my car in a second to make sure family was taken care of.You can always get another one when things get better.I know it sucks at the time ,but your heads on right .Thats always cool in my book ...

    Try not to loose sleep over it, cars come and go, but your family does not. You are doing the responsable thing, and another car will be sitting in your garage before you know it. Good luck to you.

    Hell...this old metal doesnt mean a think compared to the family...I'd sell all my deuces in a heartbeat for my family and never lose any sleep over it.

    Who knows. Maybe the new owner will let it sit. Couple years you'll come back across it and buy it cheaper then you sold it to him just so he can get it out of his hair.

    Times will get better- that's the dream we're all chasing !
    You're a better man to put Family first- what else is there...
    remember the next 26 will be better.

    Once a H.A.M.B.ER always a H.A.M.B.ER
