Well, I've been having some issues with my engine lately. I spoke with a couple mechanics about it, and they said that all signs pointed to a blown head gasket :(. I was really hoping it was something less serious, but no such luck. After evaluating the amount of money that it would take to fix the issue, and the current economic issues... I finally decided to trade it in for something more reliable. Mind you, this was one of the toughest calls I've made... possibly ever.

Because of the blown head gasket, and the amount of off roading I have done, the vehicle was appraised at a measly amount... a mere $3.5k trade (I paid $17k for it!! :hissy:). Seeing the current economic times, and the associated unknown job security, I couldn't take out a new loan for a vehicle. Also, since gas prices are getting ridiculous, I've been forced into looking at something more economical. So... last night I did the deal... and I got a 1999 Honda Civic. I guess it will do... but I doubt I'll be doing much off roading anymore... :duh:

Here's a picture of the new JD-ride once I got to work today... :(

Though it is undoubtedly an April Fools joke, I must say:

"Oh Noez! I ran outta torque yo" to the VTEC...

Sometimes I HATE being on the West Coast and not getting up in time to prank you east coasters. :hissy:

Yeah - I think my last year's post suckered in a few more people before they got wary.

Nice one, JD, anyway. :thumbsup:

Here's a good one for anyone that works in an office... tear up a sticky note, and stick it over the eye of your buddy's mouse... be sure to write "April fools" on it! Classic.

One year, my kids covered the spout of the bathroom sink faucet, with scotch tape. They did it before they went to bed, knowing I would be the 1st up. Water comes straight out, what a surprise.
