Was Louisiana the one where the interstate is divided perpendicular to the direction of the driving cars? (65mph speed limit and the highway was shaped like a wrinkled blanket!)

Been there, hated that. (drove from SCarolina to AZ)

Other than the job opportunity thing - those things are a state level deal... For all of Florida's problems, I'm quite content with the road quality and maintenance... I don't think that's necessarily enough to keep me here - just say'in

On my cross country trip - I think it was Louisiana that had the worst road quality IMO.
In my town, we pave everything with rocks. tar, rocks, tar then rocks again. How cheap are they!? and the potholes on the COBBLESTONE just on the way to school cause most vehicles to either pop tires or scrap bumpers.

It's not just on gas really though. Oh, I found a 91' geo 5 miles from here! New tires, and New timing belt! ... but there is a teensy problem with it (if you call it smoking until it's warmed up a problem )

Alright. I can always bring up the thing catching on fire while I'm driving it, and consider the sad shape of it if it smokes while running.

I wonder how much insurance would cost.... more than the car? I gotta pay for everything if I buy this one. Mom's paying for the Jeep's insurance, but if I get this, I gotta pay all expenses. My friend bought a 95' ford escort for 400, and got mad because his insurance was like 455 semi-annual.
