Hahahaha! 2008! I did not realize I have had my Aspire over 4 years! I was upset with myself for paying $2000. but I get 37 mpg with excellent air conditioning at mechanical charges of a new battery and a water pump- in 4 years!

As far as tinting windows- too much money for that car, and too many law questions. I had a roll of tint film for another project and taped that film over the rear-side windows only (all krumpled up so the Scotch tape will hold it during expansion). When gas prices got higher and higher - so did my smile! (Drivers side in photo with Aspire.com sticker)
