Logic vs Emotions re: the ex.

My ex told me he still has feelings for me and wants to see where things go. I'm not too happy with how he treated me in the past and I want to close the door for good, but I haven't been able to bring myself to do it. Deep down, I want to say "okay, let's see where things go" but I -know- that would be a bad decision. I'd like someone to pick apart my reasons so I don't go ahead and make the decision anyway.

Watch Out! That's A Rock! CRUNCH.

2006 Volvo S60's radiator has gigantic hole incurred when driving over big rock (thanks, teenage daughter!), most fluid slowly leaked out over the course of a week. Local mechanic said it's a Volvo-shop fix, but the dealer is 12 miles away and the coolant tank is almost empty. Is it safe to drive to the shop? I really don't want to be stuck on 95 with an unfixable radiator (and then having to call AAA).
