Drove 300 miles to my hometown. Stopped by my old high school first, then drove across town to parents' house. On that drive across town my water pump decided to go out. Changed water pump and flushed out all cooling components.

I'm good to go for another 200k miles!

This will be my next project. It looks like everything after the ABS needs replaced. A very tight budget will prevent "upgrades" though I will needed extended brake hoses.
