My husband is so excited by this that he keeps mentioning it. It’s like the billionth tenth time he’s mentioned it since it happened last Thursday evening! Are you curious? I thought about making you guess, but I know what kind of sickos how creative some of ya are, so…
The van passed inspection!
Here is the main reason we are both so surprised by this:
Can you see what’s wrong with this picture? (Hint: see the wire?) Give up? I’ll just tell ya then. There’s not supposed to be a wire to hold the emergency brake up. DH put it there so the light would stop coming on, because the pedal doesn’t stay up. Did they change the rules about functioning emergency brakes?
Here’s the real kicker…see that thing just to the right of the wire (at the top)? That’s where they plug in some doo-dad that they use for inspection…so there’s NO way that the mechanic could have missed that.
This doesn’t have much to do with the inspection,
but if I were inspecting this vehicle and saw this, I might wonder how rusted out the underside of the car was…but I guess that’s just me. I wish you could see the picture better because that black panel is about to fall off.
The person who will probably find this post most interesting is no one my brother…because he’s the one who sold it to us…I think it was like five years ago (I’d go look it up for you, but I don’t want to, so I guess you’ll just have to live with the estimate). Back when we bought it off him, he was quite worried that it was not even going to make it the 13 hour(?) drive home. So, we love to astonish him with the fact that it’s still alive and kickin’!
I’m thinkin’ we might be feelin’ a challenge in the air! How long can we keep that sucker running? Maybe I should start a pool! (Of course, I suppose I would have to mention how long we’ve made our previous vehicles stick it out…but that would take some memory or research…so, again…too bad for you).
P.S. Did I mention the back tires are bald (by DH’s report)?
