Default Road Trip Revival: Part 2



So this epic journey is gonna kick off bright and early on Thursday morning... Sometime before the sun comes up, Norm and I are gonna be boarding a plane headed for Boston, MA. As the date nears, I'm beginning to realize that this trip isn't the most...

You'll be fine... See you in Baltimore.

Well maybe pack an extra water pump and some fuel filters!

alright here are my guesses
run out of gas because of a faulty gas gauge,
constantly blow fuses and not have headlights,
get a clogged fuel filter and choke the motor out,
overheating from bad flow,
have a blow out,
or have a brake drum lock up

okay i will give others a chance now. safe travels!

Belts will come apart for sure. A water pump would be my second guess.

Voltage regulator goes out, found after your battery dies because it's not getting charged anymore.

You will be cruising side by side acting cool and taking pictures of each other when a big chunk of tread comes flying off your front tire, takes a weird bounce right into his car and knocks his coffee cup over.

Take a few jugs of water cuz it's going to overheat.

May want to get your own temp gauge to hook up in case the one in the car doesn't work right.

Could have a battery fail or ground/hot cable corroded (or other random gremlins under the hood). Take a test light with some wire and connector kit.

....hell....take all your tools.
