moondog Posted July 8, 2014 Share Posted July 8, 2014 Well Saturday my van took a crap about thirty miles out - turns out the water pump failed and before I realized it the head gasket blew. The cost estimate to repair was $2,500 - too much for a '97 GMC Safari that needs brakes and an A/C job. RIP. The only bright spot was that I was just about ready to drop the cash to get the brakes and A/C done. Since revamping my operation a couple of years ago, I've been steadily accumulating some cash in the account. I don't have a lot of accounts, just a few good ones so I don't need anything large - just big enough to do 10 machines a day. So this time I'm looking at something new, no more sitting by the road for 2 hours in bum f*#k in 90 degree heat for me! Looking at buying the Ford Transit - 23k with tax and license and there goes all my hard earned cash. I'll be getting by for the next few days in my SUV - kinda like a bad case of Deja Vu as this is how I started but at least the Escape has A/C and good brakes. If it's not too painful maybe I'll just save the money. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
