And feeling a bit snakebit. To recap: Found myself a pickup...98 F-150 reg cab longbox 4X4 w/V6 & 5 speed. Fixed a couple minor issues and replaced the noisy gumball 265s with 2 pair of 245s. (Two pair of used is cheaper than a set of 4...and I am cheap. Rears were spares off wrecks so are essentially new, fronts about 85%. Night & day difference.) Parted ways with my 94 Park Avenue 265K on the clock...sold it to a kid who need a work car badly for 200 bucks. Now, my youngest son needs a solid, reliable set of wheels, so my wife & I decided we'd sell him her 03 LeSabre for about 1/2 retail. Believe me...if we could afford it we'd just hand him the keys. So...the hunt for a replacement is on...and that explains the "snakebit" part. Missed a 2011 Buick Regal CXL by a day. Damn. The one I wanted since 11 was the only year they were built in Deutschland. We were bummed. Then, missed a low-mile 08 Lucerne by about 4 hours! So, you can see the "snakebit" part. The hunt continues. We're going to check out a 2013 Jetta SE w/5cyl, auto and all the stuff my wife likes, Any Jettaphiles out there with input?
