  1. First home under contract

    Freon is changing, if it’s a central unit it may not be serviceable. I just did three newest 10 years old. Freon in that one would have been 100$ per pound. All my units were ac heat combination, 20 years old is pushing it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. It took me awhile to figure it out. I do my research on the trade ins. Then I check out the deals, I usually have 3 models I choose from. The last purchase I had a Toyota, Honda, VW, Hyundai all had good year end deals going. I told them what I was willing to pay. Toyota had the most left to sell. The one I least expected to buy I got the best deal on. I tell them ahead of time I don’t haggle past two attempts. Funny though they all eventually met my price the others with phone calls too late.

  3. I own 5 vehicles total. The one we go on our trips is financed. The trip one I only put about 100K miles. The last three, 14 GMC, 15 Santa Fe, 17 Camry. All were bought new, and I don’t get of the cab much. The other 4, 92 Chevy truck lowered, stroked,blown, custom interior. 01 Acura intagra type R, Genesis sedan, and if I’m worried about parking an Elantra. All get driven regularly.

  4. Ok, while you guys are paying cash for your rides that I can get for 0 percent interest, I’m saving my money to pay cash for rent houses. One house is my fun house it pays for my fun stuff. My other rent houses pay for the last condo I bought in Myrtle Beach. When I drive there I get to write the trip off while driving the car I’m paying 0 percent interest that I’m writing off. I love using other people’s money for free. And yes I still get the discounts, I buy last years model. I have over an 830 credit score, yes It matters. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Going to neutral while moving is never a good idea. You could accidentally go to reverse, you could need to suddenly accelerate. I can picture someone panicking flooring the gas while they’re going back in drive not pretty. Not to mention scrubbing speed braking instead of engine braking not efficient.

  6. My father didn’t get pass 8th grade, I’m sure his spelling wasn’t too great. He still managed to own a few business and became a millionaire and had a few caddy’s and Lincoln’s. I don’t think he worried too much about spelling. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Texas is pretty big, there’s 4 seasons in the pan handle. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. We had an 88 7.3 and a 91 Cummings. The only time the ford could hang with the Cummings was after we added a banks kit and gear venders. All I had to do after that was reach behind the Cummings injection pump pop a cap turn it up by by Ford 7.3. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I had a tune, read up on what’s involved in making all that work. Those small blocks were pretty much bulletproof till the V-8-4 nonsense. All for maybe a mile a gallon improvement on the freeway. Think about that when you’re truck is in the shop for lifters, cam, vacuum pump, etc. and wonder how much gas you could have bought paying for that. Ridiculous. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I felt the same way, rather have a turbo than that V4 crap. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. My brother and his Forman have 2010 Ram 1/2 ton Hemi fully loaded trucks. One has 195K the other 175K. The higher mileage one recently had a cam and lifter replacement. They both just got new Rams, one traded his in my brother gave his to his parts Forman. They both still looked good the leather had no rips. Lucky I guess. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Can of worms. Someone always gets a better deal, someone always builds a faster car. If you can afford it and you’re satisfied that’s all that counts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. In my area there was a few choices for E-85. Prices were just under reg gas prices and much cheaper than premium gas. So the way my truck preformed on it and it was quite a bit cheaper than 93 gas was a no brainer. I would have paid more the 25 HP gain. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I go from Texas to Myrtal beach 4 times a year same route. My 14 GMC ran the best on E-85. As far as gas mileage no difference running reg gas or premium. Same with my Santa Fe no difference in mileage I traded in for a Camry did a trip with reg getting ready for another trip I’m going to try premium gas I expect the same results.
