I have had a reallys two days. The transmission in my Falcon died last
night on the way home (at about 1:30am). Wonderful. It now only has first
and second gears. Shit.

I rang a Ford dealership to see what the cost of a replacement would be.
$2500. Shit.

I checked the prices of that model Falcon to see what I could get for it.
$4000 max. Shit.

I need transport. SHIT!

Anyway, looks like I won't have a car until I get back from boot camp.
Then I'll just have to buy another one with whatever I can get for the
Falcon. What a nuisance. Still, the old transmission has done over 326,000
km so it wasn't entirely unexpected
