    We got $300 for the trade in.. ac was busted, tires were old, rust on all the panels and tail gate, and there was a small oil leak... $300 was scrap price

    I went the other way. My wife is a teacher and has to drive wherever she is stationed and in any weather. I bought her a new Escape.

    Oh, don't worry, we're not eating dog food. My F-150 is 25 yeas old, all paid for and is truly bulletproof. I only drive locally, or when we need to pick up something heavy and cumbersome.

    She also stole my 360PD, so I don't worry about her and traveling. She does worry about me, however...

    Congrats on the new sled. We have become addicted to jap cars made by non uniionized peckerwoods in Alabammy or somewhere. That was when we got our 2011 Tundra hot rod pickup a few years back. Already has 30 k on the dial. Seems very well built. Then my brother gave me a 92 Classic Lexus 8 banger with near 200k on the meter. I love that car. Its leaking from the moon roof. Im threatening to just caulk it shut since I never open it. What kinda calk should I use? Thanks.

    I tend to buy new and keep it until I am done with it. Then give it to someone. Last year we purchased a Dodge Grand Caravan converted to a full dropped floor for wheel chairs. The conversion adds about 18K to the price It had 23.000 miles on it. Now has 52,000 doing fine so far. For a van will will go if you hit the fuel. Payton sure likes it.

    We had a one ton Ford Hippy van back in the 80s. It could hold an amazing amount of people and supplies.

    Your drain tubes are probably clogged. Simple fix with air or long piece of stiff wire..

    bigwheel,

    Get you some White Lightning Caulk and a big ass putty knife and you'll have that moon roof sealed up nice in no time flat. If you are getting your illegals to fix the moon roof for you, White Lightning comes in tubes with Mescin Words on the tube so not to confuse the little burrito munchers!
