Unfortunately, got rid of my Ol' Black Laramie on Tuesday. It just kept on having problems on me. Back in June it had a problem where I could drive only about 20 feet, and it'd die and not start up. If it did start up, it wouldn't let me give it gas and it had a very nasty, rough idle to it. Had the problem fixed after taking the dealership 4 entire weeks to figure the problem. Since I had it fixed, I had it die on me a couple times, but start right back up. And now, not even 5 months later, had the same problem, plus some.

So anyways, got tired of it leavin' me stranded on the side of the road, so I decided to see what kinda BS the dealership salesman was tryin' to give me after I had her towed to my local dealer. Turns out, he gave a very great deal on a brand new... Now I know, most of you will probably diss me on this... 2012 Chevy Silverado Texas Edition. I went through the deal and traded her in for it. I know many people will diss me on this decision, but I have always been a Chevy man, as well as Dodge. So far I am lovin' the truck, because I've always wanted to get me a Texas Edition. I will post some pictures if y'all want me to on a day I have time available. Hardly have any time nowadays due to work.

Will miss the Ol' Black Laramie. Had lots of mods in line for it. But I just didn't feel safe in it anymore after it had died so many times on me on the highway. So might as well get a brand new truck if they give a great deal on it, am I right? Can't beat warranties.

Either way, at the end of the day, it's just metal and rubber man, no worries there. The first truck I ever drove was a 350 Chevy and I loved it.

And yes, the traffic and nutty people in DMV are CRAZY drivers....

Washed my truck at a coin-op today. Since it is 6 years old and rust just starting underneath, I crawled under and oiled the frame, underbody, pulled rubber plugs in doors and rockers and sprayed oil till it ran out. Hopefully good to go for winter & salt now.

I changed the spark plugs yesterday on the 09 Hemi...yep...all 16 of those mothe#*^$#*^%#$ things I bruised my elbow so bad I thought I broke it, I was on the passenger side...I think I hit the hood support But, on the flip side, the plugs probably had 60k miles on them, and she drives much nicer now.
