  1. Rebuilding automatics has gotten ridiculously expensive, if rebuildable at all. The clutch disk is a "fuse" of sorts. Albeit an expensive one. I see these old school trucks shifting without the clutch, rev matching and all that. I've never had the nerve to try it. I'm still ready to ditch the manual for an automatic though. So vote me off this island.

    We are getting too many of our own elk with this thing. Someone waive the protest flag. Good luck @Ed Lada !

    I still get a chuckle over that boss lady who turned herself into a talking potato for a meeting. That was a hilarious story. Good for her to just carry on with the meeting anyway.
  5. No kidding... this process hurts.
  6. Not picking on you, rather just confused. The stripped down van is more money, or the stripped down pickup? And what one has "way more" options? Seems like neither. Its early, and I'm only on coffee #1 I like the idea of manual windows for the drivers side, but love power for every other window in a vehicle. And power locks.

  12. I'm going the other way. I'm looking for a truck with an automatic. Backing while towing up a hill and the boat ramp have me convinced that the stick shift, with gearing for decent mileage, is a bust for towing. (big-rigs excluded obviously)
  13. in the 60's there was supposed to be some surfer who would paddle a long board out to the Potato Patch and surf it. So the story went... ****** Edit

    inexperienced couple buy a p.o.s. catamaran

    While @Squeakywill never be able to "put it all behind", as the whole adventure is now part of her history, she sure can move forward. I for one hope there is a boat involved. Not rapping and living in a van. That sound dull to me, but if that works for you Squeaky, have at it! I look forward to your video adventures! I do hope you will share them here. Time to put that dud of a guy on ignore. Stop looking at his videos, full stop.
