The Escort will NOT live on

Edit: We decided to junk it, so this post is already outdated, but I like the pictures, so I'll leave it posted.

I tore down the front end of The Boss Lady's car last night. No major damage, so we are going to take the insurance buyout and fix it. At least that way we know what problems the car has, instead of jumping into a different cheap car and a whole new set of problems.

Here are a few photos, while we wait for parts.

Where do you keep YOUR bumper?

"Where do you keep YOUR bumper?"

I hope you won't think less of me for telling you this, but I keep my front bumper on the front of the car. Very bourgeoisie I realize, but very practical as well-- more room for groceries in the back of the car when there's no bumper in there!

I'm sorry to hear about the accident.

But if I hang it there, the headlight, turn signal cover, battery and alternator would get lonely, don't you think?
