The Repair List

We took big girl, who still doesn’t have a permanent name, to the Ford truck service garage over a week ago. I miss her. They called with the repair list a few days ago so I imagine right now they are fixing her up real nicely for us. She’s an oldie, a 1985 so we expected a pretty good repair list when they called and we were right. The initial shock on the phone when the service lady said $9100.00 about had me choking on my afternoon ice cream cone. I had her email the list so that we could mull it over and break it all down. We kindly asked them to highlight which areas were of high, medium and low priority and they did. So far the customer service has been great, they’ve answered all of our questions and been attentive to our concerns and general lack of knowledge. We’re still waiting to hear how the first set of repairs went but here’s the overall list: Master Cylinder, King Pins, Tie Rods, Shocks, Exhaust Manifold, Air pump, Tune Up, A/C Recharge, Fluid Flush, Timing & Carburetor. We opted to have only the high priority items serviced right now in order to break of that total. Now that we know we’ll start putting some extra cash into a fund for the rest of these repairs so that come go-time, we can take her in for one last fix and hit the road!
We’ve been talking a lot about the first place that we will go! Any suggestions?
