Since Surpip put up his thread I figured I'd get this outta my system. I put up a running 700R4 for sale on the local boards, nobody bit. I wanted it out of my garage so I decided to give it away. A guy responded, posting for his friend, saying he'd take it. He asked that I deliver it....ok....it's a free running transmission and he lives 45 minutes out of my way. After a little prodding I agreed. Strike 1. He went on to explain that his friend has five kids and had been limping around on his current transmission in his crusty suburban for over a year. This led me to believe that he wasn't very well off financially. Fine, I feel less pissed about delivering a free tranny. So...I go to deliver it a couple weeks later and as I pull up, I notice many things aren't right. I'm driving into a rich subdivision, no old crusty suburbans in sight. There's a brand new 14-16' enclosed trailer next to the garage, a nice looking racing quad, a dirtbike that only looked a couple of years old, and a newer Toyota car in the garage. Strike 2, he might very well have been limping around on his transmission for a year, but only because his mortgage wouldn't let him afford a new one. Hell, the truck in question was nowhere to be found. I get out of the truck, drop the tailgate, and set out the dust cover, dipstick and tube, and t-case adaptor on the tailgate. He introduces himself and shakes my hand...which he then proceeds to wipe off ON THE TRUCK. Strike 3. I drag the tranny out of the bed, and grab the bellhousing, expecting him to grab the tailshaft. Nope, stands there and says, "sorry man, I hurt my shoulder at work today"...you only need one hand to lift an automatic with two people. Strike 4. I carry the tranny into the garage, expecting him to grab the other parts...which total 10 pounds or so. That doesn't happen. Strike 5. I go back to the tailgate, grab the other parts, put them next to the tranny in the garage. I receive a half assed and muttered thanks. Strike 6. I drive off, seriously considering going back and taking my transmission with me. I don't think I'm gonna give free parts to anybody other than my friends anymore. I think that was just b.s. He couldn't pay $50 for the tranny, but he could take it for free...I guess there must have been no money after the payments for his house, wife's car, dirtbike, quad, and trailer. What a douche.
