...I have a photo clipping from the newspaper that shows the president of the local chamber of commerce presenting the bond to me. It's in my old photo album. Also, the bond bears both mine and my mother's name..."Walstib OR (Walstib's mother's name)."
Mom has been gone 14 years now. I think this series E relic with our names is kind of cool...Does anyone see where this is going?

No. You don't need the bond to remember your mother. You have the newspaper clipping. Plus, presumably you have other things to remember her by: a photo, a teapot, or (if you really need something with her name on it) your birth certificate.

Are you a hoarder, by any chance?

What makes sense is to cash in the bonds and use that money to get the car fixed, this week, so that you don't put the repairs on a cc.

If you can't do that, sell the car as is. Every day it sits there, the expenses keep piling up (registration, insurance, cc interest).
