i finally got my car back, but here's the catch.....

After 2 long ass weeks of being immobilized, i finally got my car back. for those who don't know, my car had some tranny problem (well actually the transmission itself was the problem). i was really feeling left out from the entire world and really bored of staying at home. then last night i finally got the call staying my car was ready and i can pick it up from my uncle tomorrow morning (today). well when i got there we ran into a bit of a problem, the car was cranking but not starting. and me and my uncle were sitting there like es trying to figure out the problem until......the crankshaft position sensor plug was just simply-unplugged. we laughed and laughed as we plugged it in, and all of a sudden it started. then my uncle told me a surprising secret......the tranny actually has 7k miles! thats right i couldnt believe it either but it actually had 7,000 miles on it! and of course i had 2 ask, how is that possible and then he said luckly when he went to the place to get it the car they got it out of (an 01 se) actually had 7 something k miles on it. i was like daaaaaaaaaaaaaaammmmmnn!!!

and here's a pic of the car when i got it this morning:

c.ohamara_86, I realize you have some important things going on, but would you mind checking your PM and also your "for sale" topic? I am awaiting a status update on the stuff I bought off you. Don't mean to threadjack, but it seems I can't get through any other way.
