    Bummer. One one level I know it's just a hunk of metal, wires, and hoses, but I couldn't imagine getting rid of my Jeep.

    well it was running okay but then took a dump.. it would run rough as if getting choked. then stall then not restart. but only did it part way.. probly almost exactly at the same mile marker every day on my way to work.. i just popped the clutch and it would drive fine the rest of the way. i put a grand into it and it ran for two weeks and took another dump.. needs a new tank filler tube. im pretty sure the wheel bearing is on its way out. it needs a new alternator and from starting this morning a new belt... and that may or may not fix the running rough and stalling problem... and has a slow antifreeze leak that i just couldnt track down. empties the antifreeze about once every two months.. already changed the water pump and heater core. the first grand was for a catalitic convertor and sparks plugs, wires and rotor and cap.. having 80 miles a day drive for work. with 155k on it already. i didnt want to add more money to a slowly fading beast. is served me well but its time to move on. paying 35 a week for gas vs 85 to 90 is a good thing.. but on the brighter side. i now have money and permission from the wifey for a new gun now that its out of the driveway

    It's hard to let a good vehicle go. Have any thoughts for the approved weapon purchase?

    We just had to say good-bye to 2 1967 4-door T-birds, decided it was time. They needed to be restored and there just wasn't enough time. The buyer got both cars plus enough parts to do the job and then some. It was hard seeing the dreams die.
