Transportation drama....so I'm driving along in my 1998 Dodge (with 248,000 miles on it), and I knew it had sounded funky lately, but then as I pulled away from an intersection I hear a loud "thunk"....followed by "ka-whump, ka-whump, ka-whump"! When I exit the vehicle, this is what I see..... ....now I'm no mechanic, but I'm guessing this is not good. So a few minutes later, the "cavalry"/tow truck arrives. And only 6 days, and $1,400.00 later (incl. rental car), I'm back on the road. I'm gettin' 300,000 miles outta this truck yet!
