Hi I'm Madi. I bought this 1984 vanagon a month and a half ago. The week I bought it, the engine failed. I am eighteen years old and a fulltime student who is also working 28 hours a week and supporting myself. This vanagon was supposed to serve as my home as I traveled to shoot for a few skate and surf brands; which is my dream, and also so I didn't have to pay any rent or electricity bills. That is all now on hold. As embarassing as it is to ask friends and strangers for money, it is more embarassing asking people I know and friends of friends I've never met for rides to work and school everyday in exchange for a few dollars for gas. This is definitely not my proudest moment, but if any of you could help it would mean the world. Thank you so much!
