June 25, 2008 -- OKC Redhawks Trip

Matt and I have been driving to work to save money on gas so yesterday morning (Tuesday) I started up the car and it sounded like a partial back fire so I turned the car off and looked at Matt and said "What was that?". He thought that maybe it had backfired, so we left. I pulled out of the driveway and my battery light comes on.... So when I get to the stop sign I turn the car off and back on, thinking it was a fluke thing.... It came back on. So we are thinking altenator or battery. After 2 1/2 hours Matt calls me and tells me that we broke the belt to the altenator, which was a better fix. So he fixed it no big deal... It was about $11.00... So we leave to go to the game and ten miles north of Stroud on the Turner turnpike my car start vibrating and is making just a loud noise. We pull over and my front passenger tire is bulging out, basically blown. So we pulled the front tire off, pulled the back tire off, put it on the front and put the donut on the back. So we drove on the OKC and watched the Redhawks play (they won 4-3 in the 12th!!!!) and had a blast. It was dollar hotdog night so we got hotdogs and a HUGE Budlight. After the day we had been having it was SOOOOOO good. So we left about 9, made it home by 1, got passed all the time. (The being passed was torture for me!!!!!!!) So we made it home and our wedding gift to each other is two tires a piece!!! Whooo Hoooo!!!!

I wish my fix was 11.00! One tire was free (the bad one) but the other front tire is bad b/c it was out of alignment - and they say the insurance on the tires we paid for doesn't cover that! So new tire ($395 - low profile run-flats) and aligntment ($160)...
Fun car but pretty expensive to fix it!
