ok, so I just bought a replacement tranny from 88lxi68 about a month back b/c I knew that mine was on it's way out. Little did i know that this morning on my way to work (only 2 days away from the friggin CT/NewEngland meet that I'm helping to coordinate), the f*cking tranny starts acting up in a big way. Felt like i was riding the bull at the bar (cept i was in the comfort of the 3G seat ). So I'm saying this right here, right now, if I have to push, pull, drag, or tow that 'sum'bitch to this meet, I'll be there. There's no way that my hatch will not be there. Still it sucks that this could not wait another week or so. Oh well.
