Angry The bus f*cking SUCKS

I just thought i'd let you all know... It's always and i mean always a good idea to have a backup vehicle for when your porsche dies.

This weekend I'll be replacing my pilot bearing that took a crap on saturday. Not to mention all of the "while I'm in there..." work. Oh god... I'm turning into overkill...

The bus rocks! I thought much the same as you when I was 17 and had a job in Downtown Dallas. The commute was only 15 miles but 45 mins. long, I took the bus every day. First week sucked, then I found myself liking it. Perfect time time to relax, and take a nap. However, taking Greyhound from Memphis to Dallas in 13hrs. did suck, which I did several times. With that said, I bet my car craps out on my brother today!

When I lived in Decatur Georgia, and worked in MidTown Atlanta, I wrecked my vehicle and had to take a bus to the subway every day. I would come home at 11:00 at night sometimes through downtown Atlanta, not a safe place whatsoever....

That will teach me to wreck my car, another car, with no insurance... DOH !!!!

well, do you have all the parts for the fix ???

I miss my bus... VW, 2.2 L with a SPG roller crank Dellorto 40s, it was fun. The engine went into my 61 Ghia after the bus got hit in a parking lot, that was even more fun.

do you have a " Come along " ???

maybe hook it to a strong support in the garage and winch it in there.

You may be able to rent one at a U-Haul or AutoZone or something.

I should be able to come up Saturday about noonish. I have some leftover $$ from clutch job for gas.

Final verdict: Parents stepped in and said they'd pay for a transmission shop to take care of it.

Wrong end, Don. Worry about the righties when someone has a steering problem. J/K, of course. Glad it all worked out Brando.

Update:

Took the car to a german car specialst on the border of Corona. Good thing is he knew of my my friendly mechanic Jay Ward (Porsche Specialized). He estimated about 800 for a pilot bearing and clutch replacement. I should have the car by Tuesday, Monday earliest. Im so glad my parents decided to cover this
