What is now becoming an annoying Mego meet tradition that is not welcomed, the Fiore mobile like clockwork 3 years running has a Major repair right before deployment,

Year 1 2016 Just before we hit he highway the night before the tie rod breaks thankfully my mechanic and almost $400 later worked tirelessly to get the car ready the night before to get us road ready...
Year 2 2017 The radiator bursts it was a quick fix but alas no it will not hinder out trip, $170 later we were road ready... but Scott Drove this year... lol
Year 3 2018 My transmission computer goes wonky but not before Chrysler talks me into a fix ($770 of unnecessary repair) that did not work, so back to Chrysler we go to order the computer that I had gone to have replaced when I brought it in IN the first place so an Additional $1379 leaving the expense envelope sadly...

We WILL be making the Journey but not without a major hit to the Expense envelope lol BECAUSE this among other reasons we need this weekend get away!!!

SEE YOU ALL IN 9 DAYS!!! :)
