Anybody Have a Car or Truck To Get Rid Of?

My car was having overheating issues when I was driving out to Sunriver yesterday, which was odd considering it was 15°F outside. It would overheat, the heater would kick on cold air, and then it was like a switch flipped and it would go cool again and then heat up again and then cool again. The engine was cool to the touch, so I don't know what was going on. I took it into the Subaru Guru, who I've had look at my car several times and I know they know what they're doing. The diagnoses? A blown head gasket, which is, needless to say, a really expensive repair at $950 (because they basically have to dismantle the entire engine to get at it).

The car has 204,000 miles on it, and I'm not about to spend $1000 on a repair for it when it could (and should) put that towards a new car. And since we already have one car payment, I'm hoping to get a second that's dirt cheap.

Anybody have one for sale? I don't need anything powerful (would even prefer a wussy little car) as I drive daily to Sunriver and back from Bend and gas milage is key. If you have a small little truck, that'd be great as I'm constantly needing to haul stuff around and have to borrow trucks from people.

I'm open to options outside of Central Oregon, if the deal's right.
