Help me decide:

I have the opportunity to purchase Jordan's body kit. It needs sanded and repainted.

OR

I can spend that money on a new clutch, a transmission rebuild and some metal stock to start the build up of the '78. I have most of the pieces, I just need some odds n' ends to run.

OR

I can buy a good 6-8 credit hours of class with that money. I'm ~1 year away from a degree.

Re: Help me decide:

That's easy... Save the money, and finish college. You said you're about a year away from graduating. That one year is gonna go by fast. I speak from experience. If I hadn't spend so much time tinkering with cars over the years, I would have finished college much sooner. After that, you would have all the time in the world to continue your hobby.

Re: Help me decide:

^^ I should add, I am not currently enrolled in any college since my job is 9a-6p I MIGHT be able to get 1-2 classes done a quarter. It'll take me ~3 more years at that rate.

Re: Help me decide:

D you're killing me girl. 


Problem is, if I go to college I'll loose ~$4800/year, plus the school costs.  I can't work OT if I'm going to school.  Once I finish my CS degree, I MIGHT make 10k more than I do now (if I find a different job) and work won't reimburse me for my schooling.


I dunno...

Re: Help me decide:

Well, school is important but how many nice pintos do you see anymore. I would like to get a maverick and fix it up some day.

If you look for the bad in people expecting to find it, you surely will.
