Well, Porky, my trusty steed for the last 10 years, 4 months and 25 days finally got replaced. After being the most reliable vehicle I've ever owned, I ditched her BEFORE she left me stranded. Rust was starting to grow rather rapidly, some places a little more critical than others (like the radiator mounts), and she needed a lot of little work that a car it's age and miles (155k) needs.

So we found a really good replacement. 2010 Kia Forte SX Sedan 6MT. Found it in Troy, OH listed for $13,900 with 18k miles on the odo. Ended up with $10k loan for a 2 year old car that's almost new.

On to the pics:
