Final update: no longer driving the 'tempo of doom', i'm now in a 2004 GMC envoy. My new page for it can be found here.  So, theres a car sitting in my neighbours driveway, its been there for, oh say, 2 years, unmoved, un washed, un cleaned, un started and un cared for. Well, the guy who owned it obviuously didnt want it, and I asked him, how much? Now, how much would you expect to pay for a 3 litre V6 engined, 4-door sedan? 1500? 1000? not even close, I got it for 200, yes, 200 dollars. Sadly, the downside is the model... Tempo... but, a glimmer of hope is on the horizon *squints to see* nope, sorry, that was just a reflection on the water...What can I say though, its got get-up, gets great milage (not for todays 30 standards, but 20 is fine with me) and again, it was only $200.
