Dead in the..erm...driveway

Yup, now it's the Shadow's turn to have something go wrong with it, complete all 3 cars having something brake. Starter's bad...car turns over-ish but won't start...tried jumping it but nothing, plus the battery is new ...repeated tests lead to smoke coming from said starter. It goes to the shop tomorrow.

Also, there metal pieces bolted onto each sde of the car in the shape of where the rocker panels meats the rear wheel well...because underneath is rusty. Well it looks like the rust ate through the remaining metal underneath because I found the sheet metal that was bolted n on the ground...poor car is so rusty.

Wow... that sucks. Sorry to hear that. :(

You do not make a compelling case for FWD Mopar durrability. :P

Seriously though you need to cut your losses with that Shadow...

instead of putting another $1000 in repairs into it over the next

year just cut it loose at Holland's Junkyard for $200 and then buy

a MINT condition one for $1200 out of the want ad. Geez you can

buy one with 7000 miles and the plastic on the seats still for like

$1500 these days. They're hovering at the same kind of prices

as the Corsica, Topaz, Cutlass Calais & Pontiac 6000.
