1996 Olds 98
My wife called me 2 hours ago with something wrong with her car, front drivers side.
After a test drive - it feels like the 3 yr old hub assembly.


1995 Mercury Sable.
On my way home from work, after picking up my grandson who wanted to spend just one more night, all the sudden there was a pop and I had NO steering; turned out to be super hard steering but I got her home. I knew something was going to break, I just used the 50 cents off/gal I had accumulated and filled up last night...
Good thing I didn't take the highway home; I probably wouldn't be here if it let loose in the construction zone.

Left Side


Right Side

In all fairness, I knew one side was bad and was hoping it would last thru the winter before I had to junk it.


1998 SSEi
completely dead, not even a twinkle of power.
I just took the battery out and put it on the charger. I'll see how she is in the morning.

When it rains, it pours.
I never understood that saying when I was a kid....LOL
I just went from having 3 cars to ZERO.
Ain't life grand!

Couldn't be as bad as my last 2 hours.

We went to a Blues night ganster dress up dinner and burlesque show.

Wife thought it wasn't going to be what it turned out to be. She thought it was can can girls.

1940'* style strip tease show and I won a pic with the girls in pasties.......and wife wouldn't let me take it.

.....we had to leave early.

Now that right there is one of the reasons a man is allowed to cry. The nicer they were, the more tears you're allowed to shed. LMAO. I feel your pain.

Thanks for the offer, I'll be getting up early to inspect the wifes car and see how the battery for the SSEi is. If I need some help I'll PM you. I works second shift and this is my weekend to work so I'll need to have something going by 2pm.

The Sable will be heading for the scrapyard once I get my gas out and any other items that might be sellable.
