If a cat has 9 lives, how many does an eagle have?

Since November of 2005, I think I have put about 450-500 miles on the talon. Not from lack of desire to drive, it, but the Talon has been in the shop for various repairs. Had the clutch, brakes rotors, brake pads, left and right lower control arms, and tires replaced. And the driver’s front axle. And then the driver’s front axle, and then the driver’s front axle.
Got the car back on Feb 26 with its 4th axle. Drove to Louisville this past weekend to visit Sean, who was in town for the annual MERA convention.
Car sat all weekend until I left to go home Sunday night. Sean was pulling it out of the parking garage when he heard a clunk. Axle broke again. AAA to the rescue (thanks Megan).
Not sure what I want to do now, or what I can do. Its eaten the stock axle, two remanuf. axles, and a brand new axle. Axles aren’t cheap. My next step is either 1) try an axle from or 2) toss another axle into it, and put a for sale sign on it.
