A bit of advice

Although I don't write much here anymore, I thought I'd write a bit of advice.
So when looking for a new car, the idea of purchasing a used rental car always seems to pop into the equation. Especially for folks like my dad, who just use them once and a while, for vacation, usually driving friends and family around (ie. responsible, cautious). Then there are those who drive them for field work. The cars are terribly abused, parts glued on that have fallen off to avoid charges, plates pounded out after wrecked, filled with chemicals, driven pretty much anywhere. Like this one, which went into a mud pit and filled with water, up to just under the tailpipe and the engine was squealing. Luckily there are drain plugs on the bottom, so no noticable harm done. (a rainbow even appeared after it was pulled out)
Just some consumer advice, based on a few stories I've heard.

It's Fat Tuesday! Okay, so it doesn't really mean anything to me, but I hope I can get my work done early and head to the Indian/Irish pub, as I've been thinking about it since Sunday...

Since I'm working inside the one Sunday that it's warm and sunny, I'll post a pic from earlier in the week.
