So this just happened – after much schedule-juggling, the Fića is off to my mechanic. This should be the last major repair before the car is fully driveable and reliable, like it should've been at the start.
Seeing as it was borderline dangerous to drive when I last parked it
, we arranged a tow. The plan, however, is to drive
it back to my house once the repairs are done.
Crazy, I know.
