big thanks from the breakdown lane

Post  Rotorglow on Sat Aug 21, 2010 7:20 pm

As if Cheryl (rightfully) making an example out me for not removing my numbers before I left wasn't embarrassing enough, my car conked out about half a mile after I got on Rt 2 east. (It made boost but was stumbling worse and worse and was slowing down on the long hill just after 111, then it stalled when I pulled over refused to refire.)

I wanted to send big thanks to everyone who stopped to make see if we were ok. I'd already called a flatbed, which came in about a half hour, and we and the car are all home safe and sound now (though the car still won't start).

Thanks again for everything. I'll see you all in Sept.

Good to know you got home ok...
The natives must have been wondering about all of the little red Miatas pulling over half way up the hill...

No prob/thanks. By that point I was on the phone with AAA. It was pretty tricky for people to get over to the side.

Hopefully back up and running soon.

Seems like the fuel pump was on its way out and finally gave up the ghost. There's another one going in today.
