Might be moving ahead on this one

By Crazyfast79TA

Filed under: 1994 Chevrolet S-10 (Another Black S-10)

I've had this one on hold for 4 years now. I just wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it. I wanted to V-8 it. I wanted to just put another transmission in it and drive it. I wanted to fix it all up and give it to my son in Ohio. But my step gaughter just got her license so it may be getting a transmission (or piece together the old one with some new parts) and let her drive it. It wouldn't bother me too much either way, but I know my son would feel betrayed. That would make me feel terrible. But in reality, I never did anything wrong to my son. All I did was move to Minnesota and try to better my life. He could've come with me and changed his life too. He decided to stay in Ohio. I knew if I stayed, I would've died by now. He won't talk to me now. I know his mother has poisoned him against me. I'm not sure what she has told him, but I can only imagine. My step daughter isn't really keen on me either. She doesn't hate me or anything, but she doesn't call me "step dad". I'm "step Mike" to her. I don't know how to take that. She's the daughter I always wanted but never had. I came into her life when she was 12. Was that too late to make a difference? It made a great difference in Michelle's life. Should I fix the truck up for her and let my son think what he wants about me? I don't know what to do.

She did offer to buy a used transmission for it.

Get her involved. Tell her (and maybe your son, too ... first to accept gets it) that if she'll help you fix the truck, then she can use it (or maybe have it as hers). A little sweat equity can go a long way in building respect, and the time together may help build a bond. If she (or both of them) says no, then they don't want the truck bad enough and would only tear it up more.
