It's 4 weeks till my new truck comes in...You wouldn't read about it, haven't spent a cent on the GQ apart from accessories (quick look to left and right for wife) in the last 2 years. The bugger isn't even at 200,000k's yet and I've had the following things happen since agreeing to trade it in on the new beast:

Broken into whilst at owner/builder course (only took money)
Master Cylinder leaking
Reverse light blown
clutch slipping (could be something to do with the horsies :-))
Dead Battery on turbo side (again, could be something to do with heat generated by horsies)

You'd almost reckon it heard me and thought stuff ya, I want some new gear! Isn't it Murphy's law, it knows and I don't want to spend another cent on it. Losing enough fluid to go from full to fill in about a week in the master cylinder. Reckon I should repair it, or am I close enough to hold out. The rest I know will be all good!

Bl00dy cars, can't live with em, can't shoot em!!!

Cheers

Chris.
