Ready to bug out if needed....

I am hunkered down and boarded up waiting for Irma.. but i think cars are safer on the road as i have big oaks in my yard.. and i will take the 97, load the pets and my bug out bag if i sustain damage to the house.. btw 97 needs another regulator frt pass side, had two break on me in only a few window cycles, adjusted/greased and everything, Rock auto is aware of the problem, and after storm i will be doing a warranty return.

Good luck and stay safe. Glad where i live i don't have to deal with hurricanes. Just flooding at the start of the year and tons of smoke in the other half.

Macky, I attribute your 'luck" to the good karma that you throw around coming back at you.

I was thinking the exact same thing! Need to start looking for flood damage on those now.

We actually had less rain during Irma than we do during a "normal" summer storm/tropical depression, the wind caused all the damage, power outages and downed trees etc. I would be concerned about cars from Texas after Harvey went through to be honest.

Did a little search to see what kinda depreciation vehicles get and it came back at less than I expected.

Years back I looked into buying a loaded out low mile Tahoe when gas prices went up. They had a pair below market value. The best flood research I could come up with was the tagging was in a area suspected of flooding years before. That Houston dealer said My finance company ( Wells or Capital ( a promo low interest car loan)) would not do business with them. So I didn't buy the plane ticket.
