Towing in......

Bollocks. I could feel my truck grumbling all week and today it finally went into a silent protest not letting me shift into any gear whatsoever. Still as my friend Cheyenne would say ‘don’t be bummed at your good fortune’. He’s right; as luck would have it all shifting ground to a halt outside the airport car rental frenzy, my trusty AAA card and cell phone were handy and I was on the road again in no time.

We’ve had some good times my 1993 Ford and I, but I feel it’s time to let go and invest in a newer, younger modal. Jesus…I hope my karma doesn’t come back to haunt me on this one!

Farewell though expensive-to-run, tried and trusty friend. May you go to the truck heaven in the sky.

Say hello to a newer, YOUNGER model - I'm sure that's something you'll enjoy.

You should pass round the hat for a collection for new roof, new truck - they say things go in threes - anything else going wrong (apart from your body)?

if you replace the car and gp do you get a special price?

Hey Meesh, good idea. Two for the price of one - the problem might be if anyone asks for an MOT certificate (for either one) that could lead to difficulties for trading in purposes.

Just kidding GP I believe you have just passed your body MOT BUT do you come with a five year warranty?

Just replace the gearbox - easy and low cost :-)
