Barb blew a gasket.

The head gasket on her car, up in Bemidji. Repair estimate is $500.00.

Technically, the car is mine. It's in my name. She pays all the operating costs and insurance, and she is the primary driver, and in my thoughts the car is hers.

But she's in school, and does not have wads of cash to spare.

The car probably isn't worth $500, but there aren't a lot of options.

I want to see her do well in school. I want to make sure that she is driving a car that won't blow up or something, because if she can't drive, she can't drive down to the house and do any cleaning and organizing of her stuff.

And then there is this whole thing about her being my ex, and my needing to cut the ties of security and safety that she had with me.


She can chomp into her student loan to get it fixed right now, but in the long run it's a terminal automobile.

What if any help should I provide?
