A few days ago I told yall that I would be now driving the 67 Buick back and forth to work until Rick fixed my Explorer which sounds like it is eating a garbage disposal. Well the other day I decided to drive it to work. When I got in the car it would not go into gear. It would go in reverse, but not forward. So I put it in reverse and then pushed it forward. Being a little girl this was not an easy feat!
Finally after two or three times of this it would go by itself forward so I decided to take it to work which is only a few blocks or so away.
When I got off work it would not go again. So out in the parking lot I did my forward reverse thing. Finally I got it to go forward again after many stares and no one offering to help. WTH?
When I pulled up to the first stop sign it would not go again.
So I gunned the motor and it made a loud roar.
The next thing I know I see red and blue lights behind me.
Yes I was getting pulled over.
The officer asked me for the usual stuff.
I think he was surprised to see little ole me driving that dragster!
I told him what the problem was and he said to be on my way but to try and keep the noise down.
Like I was trying to be loud!
Anyway I told him I would have to go in reverse to get to go forward and he said okay I will wait here until I see you are on your way.
Then he went and got in his car and stayed right behind me.
HELLLO!!!!!! I need to back up!
Finally I had to walk back to his car and ask him to move.
Finally the car moved forward and I made it home.
Yesterday Rick finally looked at the car and told me I needed transmission fuel.
He put that in and now the car works fine.
I drove it up to 70 yesterday and hopefully when I get in it to take it to work today I will be okay!
So that is my po po story.
