As I stated in the other post I aquired a 1978 Jimmy with a few goodies on it last night. I had found this Jimmy on E-bay and e-mailed back and forth with the fellow quite a bit and talked on the phone about a trade. We agreed to meet half way which was at the Vette museum in Bowling Green, KY on Friday the 4th. Well he e-mailed and said lets do it today(Thursday the 3rd)cuz he was anxious to see the Burb. I said OK and left work early, got home, checked all of the fluids in the Burb, give it a quick rinse job and got the wife and son and we headed off on a 1 1/2 hour trek to meet him. We made it there a bit earlier than him, but not much. I heard the Flowmasters purring as he was coming down the interstate and there he was. What a sweet looking Jimmy. He pulls in with a grin bigger than mine I think. He was in awe looking over the Burb and I was like wise over the Jimmy. We traded compliments back and forth about each others trucks and hopped in and drove each others, checking out all the gadgets to make sure they worked or could be fixed. We were both satisfied and he asked what I thought of the Jimyy and of course I said "perfect, just what I was looking for". He said " I sure will be glad someone that really wants and will care for her is getting the Jimmy", so I asked if that meant he wanted to go through with the trade.(I really thought we would lookat at the trucks and say nice truck , but no can do and leave) He said "Hell Yes" !! So we started grinning even bigger while swapping plates and siging over the titles. 15 minutes later we are on the road heading home in our new trucks, happy as can be. 15 minutes down the road my cell phone rings and it is him. He was screaming and cussing, saying that the Burb blew up, smoke blew out of everywhere and it just stopped, he also said it looked like there was tranny fluid leaking. My heart fell to the floor and my stomach was in my throat. I couldn't believe it, thinking to myself WTF did he do to make it blow and what blew. He kept saying "I'm not too comfortable with this deal". I asked him what he expected me to do cuz the Burb was fine. I was feeling pretty bad for the guy and allot of guilt. (Even though I explained everything very well to him and the deal was done)(It wasn't like I sold him a lemon, the damn Burb ran fine every day back and forth to work and a few long trips for over 4 years) Hell the tranny was just over a year old and built up strong !! I agreed to turn around and try to identify what happened to the Burb, so I stopped and bought a flashlight and then got to thinking what is this guy thinking and how pissed is he. I had the wife and son with me and didn't want problems so I called the sherriff, he sent a squad car out, but it never made it as I found out later. Anyway, I called a tow truck for him to get prices and ideas on where to tow it too, but when I went back out to the Jimmy he had called my wife and told her that he was having his dads AAA tow him. I called him back and asked if he still wanted me to come out there with the flashlight and he was in a better frame of mind and said that it was his problem, he had a wrecker coming and asked if I could at least bring him some water for them. Everything seamed fine, so I went ahead and went down there to meet them. We looked the Burb over, it was cover from the transfer case back with tranny fluid to include the barn doors !! OMG I thought, he puffed the tranny, but after further looking I noticed that the vent tube on the transfer was gone and that was where the fluid had sprayed out of. I offered to get him some tranny fluid and see if we could limp it to the next town to save a towing bill and to make sure the tranny still worked. I must have stopped at six different places and came up with 4 quarts of tranny fluid, but I headed back to him. We poured it in and took off again. I was happy that the tranny still shifted . We got to the next town and as soo as we took the exit it started smoking and sraying fluid again, but he got it pulled into a gas station. By now it was smoking really bad and gushing fluid. He turn it off and I got under it to find the cover on the servo was gone, it has blew it clear off !! We ended up pushing it into to a parking place and then we shook hands and I headed home after making sure he hada ride coming and he was close to a motel too. Damn is all I can say !! We finally made it home about 1:20 A.M. or so !! He e-mailed me today and said this "hey buddy, I really appreciate you coming back last night and bailing me out, I opologize for losing it on the phone. Please oplogize to your wife for me, I know it must have been frustrating. Anyway, it is nice to meet good people every once in awhile. I hope you are enjoying the Jimmy, she has never let me down. Best regards, Hugh !! WOW is all I can say !! I did my best to do what I could to help them last night, but thank God he was cool about the deal and didn't blame me, saying I sold him a piece of crap.
