Dan and Michelle Black work in separate cities--Garden Grove and Long Beach--and were looking for a home that wasn't too far from either. "We were looking for just a few months," Michelle said, "but we were getting very discouraged. Prices were going up in the neighborhood that we wanted." Dan, 35, an auto technician, and Michelle, 34, an aerospace worker for Boeing, have a 6-year-old son, Nick. And they have a not-small dog named Petey--half Labrador retriever and Great Dane.

There have been many brutal moments since then, the most wretched of which was when it became clear that what was wrong with Clunk was not only expensive but also fatal.
