Rebuilding for a good cause

Hey fellow 1st owners, i have found myself in a bit of a pickle. my motor recently started knocking. idk why? i dont drive it hard, i changed the oil regularly, i always maintained it as it should. i never put the cheap stuff in it. always used the good stuff. but it has decided to crap out on me. yet i don't want to get rid of it i wanna rebuild it. mostly because it is the only thing i have as transportation. and my dad is getting laid off this week, i dont have a job yet and i am also in college. so money is tight all the way around. i know money is tight for all but i started a fund so i can buy a used motor with low miles to replace mine. any kind of help would be appreciated $1 $5 anything. umm mods idk if this is legal or not. if it isnt you can lock it out i understand but i really need help. i dont know what else to do. thank you for your time and consideration. here is the link to the fund. http://goo.gl/3R3Xu
again thank you in advance for the help.-Taco GTR

Its not illegal to ask for money, but I gotta say during my life theres been more than one time I've been in dire financial need & had to sell some possesions/toys to take care of the issue, don't you have something else of value that you can sell to help yourself & your cause ??
