well i went to visit some air force friends this weekend and everything was going well until i decided to head back to OKC. My transmission decided to completly stop working altogether. i made it about 80 miles west and it decided to lose all gears on me. so now im stuck here in shreveport til the first or until money appears out of thin air. so if you have a free car or money to blow call me ha ha. if you have a mazda 626 (1998-2000) beware, the tranny, is a piece o' junk. as i have found everyone says they break easily.

oh i do have to add i have some of the greatest friends anyone could ask for. my friend had to be at work this morning at 5 and drove an hour and a half at 9 pm to hook a chain to my broke piece and tow me back to his house where he is letting me stay no questions asked.

Well thats good.

I have some distant family somewhere in that area but the last time I talked to them was at my cousin's wedding a few years back.

If you were a little closer to I-40 I could help more.

my friends mom's 626 broke on the highway with us in it... we thought she was just a ****ty driver until smoke came out from the hood and she had to pull over lol. I dont remeber what she said was wrong with it. It wasn't much smoke though.
