Rest In Peace Toyota aka Michele (My Car)

The pictures above are of my car the late Toyota Camry, better known as Michele.  On Sunday May 13, 2012 Michele went home to the great junkyard in the sky.  She caught on fire on I-77 in South Carolina as I was going to see my God mom. My best friend J and I were together at the time. I'm just thankful that the car didn't explode. (After Photos Are Posted Below).
  The only damage done was to the engine and the hood.  The parts under the hood burned.  However, we were able to crank the car, but the engine is knocking badly and it has a thrown rod.  I've put over $1500 into that car and I refuse to put anymore into that car.  It is an 1989 model and it's had problems from the jump.  I've had the engine worked on twice.
  Many sources that are close to me are advising me to keep the car and wait till my mechanic recuperates from an operation and let him replace the engine again....I'm sorry, but NO!!!  I refuse to put any more energy into that car. It's caused too many issues in my life and it has drained my pocket.
  However, I am proud because when I brought the car for $900, I brought it myself and I paid the taxes and insurance and everything on the car. I did it myself. For that I am grateful.  Right now, it wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have a lot of engagements and bookings for music and ministry as well as having to go to work.  It seems as if my car broke down at the wrong time.  Right now I am asking that if you would like to please donate to the chipin below.  The money raised will be used to help me buy a new car. My goal is to raise at least $800 to either go towards a down payment or to buy a car from a previous owner.  I'm not even going to try to be picky.  Any little bit will help. Thanks and check out the Chipin under the picture of Michele below.
