Good bye to an old friend...

After many months of being used as a storage shed, I finally sent my classic No Fear Cavalier on to the big highway in the sky. That car served me well, and had many adventures and experiments with it. It ran right up to the moment it left on the tow truck, but really had too many issues to try and sell it as a driver. I bought it in 2006 with 7k miles on it, and it went out with well over 200k on it. Built in Lordstown, Ohio and retired in Kearny, NJ. A true American hero.

ya could have made it into a 24 hours of lemons car. or sold it to a lemons team looking for a fun car for $500

brakes aren't part of the $500 limit in lemons racing so a team could have put in a whole new/upgraded brake system
