Big C Project

So, I haven't been writing much because I am working on a big C project for a couple of weeks. Hopefully it will be finished by the time Sara comes back from Canada. Courtney and I have also been trying to get the apartment in order (to no avail), and we are possibly going down to Arkansas next week. Anybody have any tips on buying a car? We need one bad, since the AC is broken in Courtney's car. I am hoping to find a nice, used Toyota somewhere.

It is prolly cheaper to fix the AC than to buy a used car. ;-)

But then we would have a 1998 Ford! Actually, I don't know anything about cars, but Courtney swears that she has taken the car in for the AC to be fixed twice (totaling $1000) and it still doesn't work. Actually, if anyone out there knows about cars, the AC does work, but when it is on, and the car comes to a stop, the engine dies. So you can only use the AC when the car is moving (which apparently is not much with DC traffic.) Anyone have any idea why that happens?

Well, the AC is an extra burden on the engine, because the engine has to drive the compressor. I mean, it sounds like you just have a wuss-ass worthless car engine that can't handle running the AC and the car at the same time. Oh wait, you said you have a Ford, so I guess that's true. ;-)

Sorry, that last comment was from me. I didn't mean to be anonymous.
