I recently went shopping for a new car, in small part because I wanted to get myself a special gift for ordination, but mostly because my old car was falling apart.  After all what parish wants to have a deacon whose car is going to break down all of the time, unless of course you can walk from your home to the parish.  I am not that close to Holy Sepulcher parish.
