I took by beloved 1988 BMW 528e to the shop this morning. It's been parked for a year.  It blew a timing belt and had a valve job. Ever since it's had a low idle and the check engine light will come on periodically. I drove it 50 miles this morning and it ran pretty good.

I'm of two minds on this car.

1. It's still a good car with some miles left on it. Put some money into it and you can drive it for another five years. It's kind of "cool".

2. This jalopy is 20 years old. Everything needs replaced and it's going to cost a fortune to get it in decent shape. Even then, it's still a twenty year old car. I've had this car since 1995.  I love it.  Obviously I'm not thinking with my head.
