Okay, so this morning I went out to the honda at about 6:15am. Showed up and couldn’t get it to go forward at all. I stuck it in reverse, and voila, it went. Then it decided that going forward was a good idea, too. So the honda seems to be working right. That’s good.
On the way downtown from Gateway, my truck’s 2nd and 3rd gears started making an awful racket. I think the synchros there are going … and the tranny shop is on vacation until the 4th. I’m going to park it in the Palmer HS diagonal parking lot until either A) I figure out something else to do with it, or B) the tranny shop opens. So that’s that.
I don’t want to get all up in hawk for another car … I’m thinking that when it’s all said and done, I can sell my truck for $3,000, maybe $3,500. That will either be pay-back-loan-money or a down payment on another car. I am thinking strongly about an integra … dunno why, though. What year is your Neon, Disco?
So yup, that’s that … on my way home to finish cleaning and to pray that my parents aren’t back yet.
Update: I saw this nifty, inspiring even, quote, and despite the fact that it doesn’t mesh well, I thought I’d post it … :
