Poor little girl. She's served me well. I still owe $2000 on her.
She decided to evacuate her transmission fluid an hour away from my home. I managed, with the help of a gracious, amazing, wonderful friend, to get her towed to a local tranny shop.
They called me with the estimate yesterday.
You know it's not good when he starts out saying "Well, it's not good".
Goes on to explain everything and then stops.
So I say "And...? How much is that going to run me?"
I was speaking slowly and distinctly so there was no mistake "Ummm...as in Two THOUSAND three HUNDRED and NINETY FIVE DOLLARS? Not pesos or yen?"
He says "yep, that's right."
Well, considering "fair" private party blue book on my little hot rod is $2300 I asked him to just keep it for a couple of days till I figure out what to do.
Got my Suburban running, though. I was pretty proud of that. Did it all by myself. Installed a new battery, cleaned the carb.
YEP. ME. All by my lonesome!
**Thumbs in suspenders**
So at least I have transportation. Even if it does get about 14 MPG.
The junk yard said they would sell me a used tranny for $800. And they would buy the car off me for $100 if I want to get rid of it.
