Well, this ends my Riv journey (for now). We decided today was the day for it to meet it's final resting place. Go to start it up, it BARELY cranks over enough to fire. Battery was obviously almost done from sitting so long. Get the last of what I need off of it and the rims swapped back to the stock ones, head off down the road. Had to baby it since it only had first, and all was going well until we were about halfway to the junkyard. All of a sudden I hear "clickclickclickKnockKnockKnockKnock". F&%#. Alright, just try and make it the other 10 miles there. Make it another 2 miles and it just goes"KnockKnockKNOCKKNOCKKNOCKKNCOKBLABOOOM". Double F&#%. Have AAA tow it back home since they're not allowed to take it to the junkyard. Whatever, we'll deal with it later. Luckily my girlfriend's brother was moving in to their house and had a U-Haul car trailer for his car. They were kind enough to let us borrow it and their truck (ours is somewhere between here and MA right now) to tow it in exchange for helping them move stuff. Get back home, have both neighbors take their tractors and push it up onto the trailer. Alright cool, now we're on our way. Get to the junkyard and the damn subframe went over the front of the trailer and got caught. Had to jack it up and push it off the back of the jack and down a hill into a scrap minivan. And thus ends it's journey, it's been fun. Thanks everyone for just being freaking awesome RivNuts.  farao
