Need New Tires

Something is wrong with the rear tire on the passenger side. Thank god I see that side of the car before climbing into the drivers seat and heading out. The tire was almost flat this morning and I had to drive down to the gas station to use their air station before I got on the highway.

I looked all over for a nail or screw in the tire and can’t find anything, but there must be something wrong for the tire to go so flat in just a day or two. The tread is not all that bad, but now that I’m looking at tires, I guess it wouldn’t hurt to get a new set put on and then I won’t have to worry about slow leaks or uneven wear.

Almost all the tires stores advertise that if you buy three tires then you get the fourth tire for free. I think we have all come to expect that sale promotion as normal daily business. I have to check around and see if Firestone or NTW has the best deal this weekend. I might be able to put it off an extra week for the sake of catching a sale – depending upon whether that rear tire holds air long enough or not.

I want a new car

I really am tired of this fucking car. I want a new one or a truck. It doesn’t have to be a big truck though a small one would do. I do like the new Jetta by VW. I test drove one the other day just for kicks and it was fast, sleek and a lot of fun to drive. Ok this one wasn’t new new, because this years model is a sedan, and the one I drove was a¬†convertible, but it was awesome. Jetta convertible’s are hard to find, because there aren’t that many of them. I don’t think they made them for multiple years, but I will have to look that up to be sure.

This one was fully fucking loaded and the interior was immaculate. I am seriously thinking about buying it. My old car is really about to die. I have had it a long time and it was used when I got it. I have put a lot of miles on it and before it dies completely leaving me high and dry, I think it would be prudent to replace it. I will take my friend Gary with me to go look at it first though, because he is a mechanic and will check it out fully first. He will bring his computer to make sure there are no electrical problems that I shoudl be concerned about.
