yesterday i transported a cake to the county fair, went and picked up about 20 concrete blocks, loaded them to the front so i could pick up and work on a push mower. fixed and returned mower, took another cake to the fairgrounds. sunday i wish i would have had my camera. a freinds '96 dodge caravan lost a trans seal while towing a small open 4x8 trailer. we flat-towed it home with the trailer still on the back of the minivan. guy rode the brakes on the van to keep the strap tight. got it home, but now it needs a trans and brakes. i could smell brakes while we were towing. i do hate being the tow vehicle with a strap and manual transmission.

What did it cost for all your stuff?

I also cleaned the interior long overdue.

Replaced everything I had removed in preparation for the body lift that didn't happen.

What a biotch stuff never goes back in as easy as it comes out.

I put WD-40 in the latch of my "new" 1998 4.0l to solve the "door ajar" problem. I only had to open and shut the doors half a dozen times. I was so psyched that it worked.
