Save the 92 Ford Escort Stationwagon?

Faithful Redstone is a bike/kayak beast of burden, all set up. The head recently cracked. $2000 for repair. Should I fix it, or take my wife’s advice and move on.

what should I do?

I know how you feel; that was a nice little wagon. But $2000 and later more $$$ is not good business.

I would say goodby and move on!

If someone asked 2k for an escort wagon would you buy it? Of course not. So find a 1k 92 escort buy it and have a parts car for future repairs.

Listen to your wife. It does not make good economic sense to put that much money in a 19 year old vehicle.
