i pushed my truck to hard on I75. holding it to the floor for the past 100 miles in 4th trying to do 75 didnt work out to well. i think the head gasket poped. its smoking from the back of the motor, wont idle and.shakes real bad.

so now im sitting here in ocala fl, my ride wont be here for a few hrs. luckly the guy working the gas station is gonna buy it for $125, at least i dont have to worry about getting it home.

yeah 125 is a total ripoff even for something that doesn't run, but then you would have to get it home...

Take $125 for the truck, or pay +$300 to get it home.....


I know what I would do, but that's just me.
