In HS I drove a refrigerator truck with ice back and forth from LV to St G. And it was always over loaded and that thing was a nightmare in traffic just because it wouldn't go or stop. due to the box on the back you couldn't see anything either. Now I have the same view as many others everything else is cake now, and driving my wife's car is so fun because it fits everywhere.

Brakes on my motorized box work great! Even with a truck being towed behind it!






On the other hand... Walked out to the garage this morning just as my water heater started leaking. Good times! Guess I know my afternoon plans now! Oh well... Could've been worse, had I not walked out this morning just as it started, I don't want to know what it would've looked like. Or better yet, if it had happened Friday morning just after I leave for 3 days to return to that flood!

Already chatted with him. Not gonna bug him unless I really really need the help. Asked him a couple basic questions. Biggest thing is going to be if I can physically move the old one and get the new one in place solo. I'm not sure if my plumbers crack is beefy enough to handle that...

Oh my god this van. It's got all sorts or drawers and cabinets and lockers and **** in the back and every time you hit a bump its like somebody slams a locker shut and sounds like the damn thing is gonna rattle apart.

I'm over this thing. I'm taking the truck with no AC. I wish I hadn't been the one that broke that a few years ago when driving it to Cali. I also broke the intake manifold on it last year while driving it because I broke my ranger...and that 3000 dollar truck needed like 2000 worth of work lol. I break trucks alot

Yeah, my van rattles and makes all sorts of noise. It's the high pitched screeching sounds that really bother me. The rest I can deal with. Mine also vibrates like a...well, vibrator at highway speeds. Enough that my computer and clipboard frequently walk off onto the floor. The van does have some go power though!

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Operating a motor vehicle around London can only marginally be considered "driving" anyway.

Ok, the Skyline could ease the pain a bit!
