coming home from supper in spindale on hwy 74 running
about 65 in the old ladys malibu around 9:30 tues night.
out of the corner of my eye i see somthing scoot just in front
of my bumper. no time to brake, swerve or make any corrections
just hold my line. BLAM struck the coon dead center of the lower
bumper cover--didn't feel the coonass come out the back for a couple
seconds. slowed down and noticed smoke coming outa the back.
pulled in the next place i could and saw antifreeze pouring out.
luckly we were at a place we could fill it with water. filled it up
and booked toward boiling springs to a place i knew we could
get more water (overheating by this time and in limp mode).
put more water in and shot towards the house. made it.
hauled it to the body shop and he went to work on it. took out
the ac condenser, radatior and all the plastic that goes under the
bumper. gonna run me 4-5 hundred to get it repaired-- no collision
ins.
so i'm not sure that we'll be able to make harlan --
had that money put back for the trip & will need to pay him when
finished.
might be time to sell the ol chevy and start driving the 86
MB 300SDL i inherited from my mom. only got 68 thou on the clock
but has been in storage for 5 years now. i recently got it out
and installed a new battery--started right up. its got a couple
minor issues like the radio wont work and the AC needs charged
but otherwise it's in fine shape.

Bummer about the Chebby, but if you need any pointers on that MB, give Greg Stone (BigWoody) a call. He's the Benz man for sure.
