My new commuter: 1983 Honda C70 Passport. It has been sitting in storage most of its life; the Texas plate on it had a 1985 registration sticker. Only 1150 original miles.
Flushed out the gas tank, cleaned the carb, added a fresh battery and changed the oil and it fired up on the second kick. I love old Hondas! I also swapped out the original (), crusty, 29 year old tires for a new set of Michelins.
It runs like a top now, and I just ran my first tank of gas through it: 107 mpg. Not bad for a ~$1000 investment. And, since they still build this model in at least a dozen countries, parts are readily available and stupid cheap.
When i was in NYC, i was eating at a restaurant with my friend when Bill Murray passed by, took a french fry from our basket, dipped it in ketchup, ate it and said:"No ones ever going to believe you" before walking out.
Bought a new mortgage yesterday (refi). Locked in at 3.25% with only the VA funding fee out of pocket, which is 0.05% of the principal. Took off $200 from my mortgage payment so I am pretty happy about that.
I blame REI for their used gear sale and 20% off coupon and friendly staff that's too helpful and informative.

And CycleOps Wind indoor trainer for when it's raining and/or my sense od self-preservation outweighs my drive to get fit.
Been cycling in the mornings 5-7 miles, signed up for Tour de Cure 2013, am hoping to upgrade to a full road bike down the line. The bumpy ride is chronicled over in the cycling forum if anyone will need a good laugh after I get going with the clipless setup.
Various 1.8t coolant flanges... To fix the cars perpetual coolant issues.
Items that have died.
2x Thermostat Housing
1x Coolant Temp Sensors
1x Water Pump
1x D. Side Coolant Flange
1x Rad Flange
Not counting OEM that came on the car... Id think I'd be done with the leaks by now.
