I'm starting to believe my wife and I bought a house that was too much for our budget, plus we got her student loans at the same time. Before we bought the house when we lived in an apartment we had a 2001 Tacoma we had bought when she was still attending college. We sold it to get out of payments before we bought the house. In place of it I found the 89 suburban which I like. But it has needed a few things, just did the water pump and before that I did the 700r4, and now need to change a seal in the 208. But I think the problem is that when we bought the house I was working 10 hour days, plenty of overtime. Well I'm an equipment operator in the northwest and I'm lucky to not to get laid off, but my hours have been cut to 8 and no overtime. Our budget is so tight we have been commuting with the burb to save on gas. Currently its hard to just fill the tank on burb. I drive my 85 k10 maybe once a week. It needs a page full of things fixed including the gears match. I've been trying to sell a 4bolt 350 I have to buy a set of 3/4tons with matchin gears so I can get my 4wd back. But I haven't had much luck and winter might be over before i get that done. Today has just been depressing, because I just sold my 77 k20 a few months ago to fix the burb and selling my 85 has crossed my mind since I can afford to fill the tank or fix it. I just dont know if I can live with out a truck to drive. I hate cars, atleast in my opinion the burb counts as a truck to me. ok... i'm done rambling!!!
