What are you going to do if your mechanic puts it back together, and it still doesn't run right?

I think the smart thing to do is to get this horrible caddy and drive it until the headgasket fries itself

I think by then I'll have enough to get something that will last a while

Wait, so does your MR2 run somewhat reliably? Just with annoying drivability issues? If you're just going to dump it eventually, drive that shit into the ground while you save up for whatever it is you really want.

Alternately, sell the MR2 and buy something that is reliable first, and glamorous second. You know. Like a CRV.

That's actually what I've decided to do (first option)

I wasn't getting any action on Craigslist and the guy who is going to part my car out isn't going to pay me any more or any less whether I sell it to him tomorrow or 8 months from now.

Good call.

I seriously think you should consider a motorcycle in the future. Get you a reliable POS to drive around when you need it first - pretty much anything will do - and then scratch the "fun vehicle" itch with the bike. They can be parked pretty much anywhere. I know you've said parking for two cars is a problem in your current situation, but you can easily get a civic and a modestly sized bike into a single parking space.

For what you paid for this MR2 originally, you can get pretty awesome used motorcycle of nearly any type you want.*

*Except a Harley - people who own those think they're forged from unicorn bones or something. Also, Harleys suck ass.

I wouldn't look good on a motorcycle I'm too bloated

Also I'm the type who would get lazy about suiting up every time and I'd end up having to get ass flesh grafted onto my face

so why have you decided to get rid of the MR2 when before you were certain you were going to get the swap done?

I'll do the swap for $1k or the head gasket for $600 with some caveats

edit: on second thought it's probably too much trouble (distance wise)

Depends on the bike. You'd probably look silly on a race replica supersport, but those are designed for sub-150 pound riders. Most people look silly on them. Get something reasonable, and you'd be fine, not that it matters all that much what you look like anyway.

The gear becomes a habit after a little while. Get some that fits properly and isn't off-brand crap and you won't hate wearing it nearly as much as the squids complain about. Also, little kids will think you're a superhero, which is sort of cool.
