stranded in elko nevada

I have an old girlfriend, who is stranded in her 2003 ML truck.

Apparently started knocking and stalled. Mechanic says that she needs a new engine.

I think that she is going to leave the car there and would sell it cheap. It has new tires.

Anyone interested? Have to let me know real fast

I can see you've been a member here for a while, but this post has all the characteristics of a serious scam....

Yea, I can see that. Not sure what she did with it, but she was talking about writing it off.

If it was closer to Tucson I would consider it for a project vehicle but to far away to have it towed.

I traded my Vette for a 06 SL500.....Time will tell if I made the right decision.

Good point.

This is a good data point for me. Youngest son was looking at an internship with the BLM at some national wildlife area 60 miles southeast of Ely. When I mentioned he wouldn't be taking his 1994 S420 with him, he got upset.

"So who is capable of repairing your car within 2-300 miles of Ely?"

<silence>

End of discussion.

Heh. Elko and Winnemucca are virtual shorthand for 'impossibly remote' but they have nothing on Ely.
