Scamming of out of state travelers is one of the oldest automotive related scams there is.
LEOs do it all the time, but full service gas stations are mostly history these days. An independent shop might consider, but I suspect most are honest. A dealership, I don't think so.

People don't consider this option when broke down...buy an used pickup truck, get a trailer and tow it back home...then sell pickup truck.

PS June - "as the break was making horrible"

It's "brake," not "break."
Unfortunately I don't always catch wrong spellings. Luckily you do! :lol: :lol: :lol:

The dealer fixed the break oh brake :mrgreen: today. So all is right in my S80's world once again. The mechanic was excellent as well as the advisor. The job was completed quickly. June

It was the breaking of the brake that made the horrible.
Gen X might say it that way, but in context, brake would suffice.

The break is the subject. She has no qualms with the brakes. Matter of fact, she stakes her life on the brakes.

She took it into the dealer to get rid of the break not the brakes.

Does June eat steak when she’s stakes out the brake break at the dealer?

Hope you are well, June, let us know when you start home. I hear there’s an R inNC actually running now, so we can test our second gears

Matter of fact....
Fact: you can not make something a fact by prefacing it with the word "fact."

In the Heat of the Night (1967) Movie

Just once in my life, I'm gonna own my temper. I'm telling you that you're gonna stay here. You're gonna stay here if I have to go inside and call your chief of police and have him remind you of what he told you to do. But I don't think I have to do that, you see? No, because you're so damn smart. You're smarter than any white man. You're just gonna stay here and show us all. You've got such a big head that you could never live with yourself unless you could put us all to shame. You wanna know something, Virgil? I don't think that you could let an opportunity like that pass by.
~ Chief Gillespie

It is a fact. Anybody that did not use the brakes to stay alive would not be.

June been driving for a long time and she is still communicating with us. That is proof she uses the brakes to stay alive. It is blaring obvious June is not an Idiot that gonna get herself killed.

It needs at least one semi-colon

If this is true, then it isnt factual, which is true/fact.

Wait, I need a steak on my break.

I never understood paying for rare steak. One might as well cut out the middle man and bite the cow. :wink:

Funeral last Saturday, on the road today. In Oklahoma, but going back to Ft. Smith to look at houses. Last summer I found this place and fell in love! I want to relocate here.

I know it appears I am a degenerate gambler! Already winning! I'll add photos as I go. I plan on checking out Hot Springs, Ar next. June
