My buddy's wife just trashed my old FWD '85 5-speed 5-cyl 5000s for the
third time (this fruitcake has repo'ed the car shortly after 4 years ago
he bought it from me in a _clockwork_ condition! If I only knew that she
was gonna get to drive it! BTW, it's nickname was "the skylark" - alas
it loses a lot of the swift and streamlined subcontext when translated
from Russian into English).

Anyway, among other things he bought a hood for $50 and an A/C
compressor for $17 at a local u-pull-it junkyard. The A/C sys on the
donor car was still pressurised when we opened up the lines.
