My car, a 1987 Toyota Tercel, which I got two years ago for only $800 from a Japanese woman, finally stopped moving. When I drove to Seattle a few weeks ago, the engine was damaged by the oil loss. The engine noise was getting worse day by day, and it was so noisy that everyone on the sidewalks looked back at me when I passed them. I drove to the nearest car dealer very carefully and got another car. A 1996 Chevrolet with 5MT is my new car. It was the cheapest car at the dealership, but it cost almost five times as much as my old one. It's a greatly improved version with a 2.2 litre engine, an anti-theft system, an air conditioner, a CD player, and a brand new front windshield. Of course it has no collision history. In Canada, the manual transmission system is a great disadvantage because few people can drive it. So I could get this car for rather a low price. The manual transmission doesn't matter to me. I prefer it. I'm lucky for now. I just hope I won't have any more car trouble.
