Hey Buddy.. Nice Ride Katy Realtor

 

I found the car I drive had a major electrical mechanical issue when we arrived home from our recent trip. I was able to drive it to our mechanic after some fooling around and with some repairs and a lot of labor he says it hopefully will be fine. We own a 1999 Ford Expedition which has over 160,000 miles on it and it recently sat on our driveway for at least four months without moving as it had battery issue and busted battery cable. Lucky for me I got it fixed as I was too cheap to let a local car repair shop charge a high fee to get it running. In addition, it passed state inspection and I was able to order the state registration sticker for it.  Yeah..

 

I have been driving this car since I got home. It does look like a rolling wreck but frankly that does not bother me. The AC does not work as it died several years ago and we decided not to sink major bucks into repairs on a very old and beat up car. My step-son drove to college at Texas A&M while he was going to school there. It has been a challenge to drive this vehicle without AC as it is very  hot and humid in Katy TX. I have been sweating through my clothes and I look like a dishrag when I get to work or home. Fortunately I do not have any clients who want me to take them to view homes! I can only imagine how that would go over if I did.

 

Here are a couple pictures I took so folks get a feel for this old car. LOL..Obviously we are not living large!  It did go 75 miles per hour on the Houston/ Katy version of the Autobahn on Highway 99 the last few days..
