    Awesome. As I was reading through that, I was like I swear to Sweet Baby Jesus if there are no picks of the car at the bottom of this post I'm going to be so let down.

    Sorry to hear about your divorce and business woes, but I can't feel bad for a guy with such a sweet ride. And that's all I gots to say about that.
     
    KANSAS TRANSIT Thanks this.

    Thanks for all the support, not really looking for any pity, it is what it is, I just thought I would share how quickly a "nothing" day can turn into a "something" day.

    As far as the split, I think we both knew for a while, nobodies fault, we both stopped trying, but it does amaze me that with life's issues how you can die a little each day and not even realize it.

    The business is still fine, we carry so little over head/debt and run probably as efficient as anyone in regards to fuel costs and operational costs, so I'm sure we will be here until the sun don't shine, or I'm pushing up daisy's.

    As far as run better fuel, yeah, not real easy around here, most stuff is 87 at best unless you are running an ethanol blend, and the boiling point is so low in those blends that if your not under high pressure, as in fuel injection, it's a killer.

    Maybe next weekend if the weather holds out I will dust off the cruise missile and get lost for the weekend, poor thing must have an inch of dust on it,

    Those cars are a lot like wives... They don't make them like that anymore.

    Sorry to hear about your troubles. When I was going through a divorce (15 year marriage)back in early 2000s I'd do the same... roll down the windows, crank some old rock and just drive.

    The wind in your hair, the growl of the engine, the hug around tight turns... there's something deeply satisfying in it.

    The problems didn't vanish, but as the gas tank went empty... my ability to deal with all the horse #### filled back up again for another day.

    Peace, KT. This too shall pass.

    What a #### fool! If I passed up a good sit down breakfast for some drive thru sandwich I'd have never reached 275 lbs. And you call yourself a trucker.
