Unless you spend tens of thousands of dollars replacing the drivetrain. I imagine fuel economy is the third concern. Would you say reliability is first and power is second?

My supervisor said in 2002 that she wanted an H1, which absolutely makes sense, it is 8,000 pounds, and she is 5'2". She became an occupational therapist and had two therapy clinics five years ago. The SLP that trained me in her clinic had a nice and new Cadillac. I think the owner had a new Mustang, but who knows how many cars she had at home.
When I bought my 1987 Honda Prelude Si in 2000 people talked about their dream cars and I said "I don't know, I guess mine is a 2000 Civic."

I currently dream about a 2000 Civic operating within specified parameters. What am I doing about it? Just thinking that I need to ask to reschedule an appointment. Somehow my math has changed since yesterday. I keep thinking this must be wrong:
0815 leave for the second job
0830 arrive
1530 leave to see one kid for main job
1630 leave to see other family
1730 see two more kids
1900 leave the reservation and drive a neglected two-lane road without a shoulder
2000 return home

I am sure that plenty of people work scheduled like that, but I am not accustomed to it.
