Free Oil Change
Our business van we use for hauling inventory is a 1999 GMC cargo van. One of our local GMC dealer is offering a free oil change on any GMC vehicle. We took advantage of that today. NO catches, not sales pitch, just a free oil change. I like that.
The last oil change on our little Chevy Cavalier was $28. I think since we are on a budget, I am going to start changing my own oil again. For under $10 it will be worth it.
I have often said that one of my goals in life is to never work on a car again, even oil changes. OH WELL! There are times when you just have to do what you have to do to make ends meet. I was already doing the oil changes in the motorhome. I think an oil change in our 5 or 6 quart gasser engine was $85 at Camping World. I never price it locally.
It has been cloudy today and the temperature is down. Even the warehouse is a little cooler. I looked over toward the beach and it might even be foggy right on the coast or just offshore.
Yesterday I call my cousin who lives in San Bernardino County and she said it was really hot over there. Sharon and I are both thankful that we moved to the coast and are a lot cooler. It also helps our budget not to have to spend huge amounts on electricity for cooling.
While at the GMC dealer we looked at a GMC Denali. $54,000 and change. I could have bought 2 of my 3 bedroom houses, 3 Chevy Impala Convertibles and had money left over to go to Hawaii with that amount of money back when I bought our house in 1968.
Times sure have changed!
