The police found it yesterday. It’s trashed inside. The steering column was broken and he has to fix it before it’ll start properly. It was on E and the battery was dead. The guy was in it when the cops found it so he’s in jail. He had a stack of his police reports in the car, as he’d just gotten out of jail. Plus it’s just gross. Some meth head was living in it. Underwear, condoms, drugs, antibiotic ointment, etc.
  A guy from jiffy lube helped us by jumping it, lending Keith a gas can, and hotwired it to get it started. Now Keith uses a screwdriver to start the ignition, and holds the hanging turning signal on while he turns. Because a sheriff found it, he can get the police report for the insurance company in three days! If the police had found it, it would’ve been five weeks!
Keith’s roommate is a mechanic by trade, so he’s looking it over tonight. Blessings abound!
