    It doesn't really look good. They are on camera asking the police where they would like them to move to.

    Truck conundrum

    So my 2003 suburban finally gave up it's transmission over the weekend. Has 190k miles on it and pretty normal rocker rust from being in the north east. I have owned it 10 years and only put about 22k miles on it mostly while towing my boat. Doesn't get driven a whole lot. I don't want to spend more than 10 or 11 k on a used truck and that basically will get me like a 2010 with higher miles on it also and who knows what I'll get into. I have fixed the 4x4 and brake lines on my suburban and it's generally not a bad vehicle. Should I just dump 4k into mine because I know what I'm getting into for look for a 7-8 year newer used vehicle Both feel like a lose lose situation

    Truck conundrum

    I do have the tow package in mine. Last year I had the transmission lines replaced at $420 so I did not have to do this in the rebuild. 3rd gear is completely gone so when my guy gets into it he is going to see what is up and there is a cascade of things that could potentially need to be done. He quoted me the worst case so I knew what I was potentially looking at. I was pretty happy. I was expecting worst to be 4k Yes it's a local shop and I love my mechanic. Guy in his early 40's and knows cars inside out like no other. Always good on price and fixed right. This will be a rebuild with various warranty on the components

    Truck conundrum

    Problem is that is 50 percent higher than I'm wanting to pay. I want to stay in the 10 k range Again I drive this about 2200 miles a year on average I can't spend 16k on that when my daily driver is a 4500 dollar car

    I imagine a few of those onlookers trying to help will be slightly traumatized after watching somebody suffocate to death too

    2 cops there and instead of the 2nf working to restrain the guy safely he decides to run crowd control. Charge um with manslaughter

  22. I have pitched since I was about 7 up to still do in my summer beer league. I have had about 4 balls hit at my head in my life that were dangerous but never been hit. I can't imagine playing with actual quality hitters. It is truly amazing somebody hasn't does yet
