Angry r.i.p

my truck died today. the computer went to **** the alternator went bad. turbo is leakin. the injectors are worn out. its kinda weird that it all happened in one day. i parked her next to our old farm house and thats where she's gonna stay. im only 17 so im not gonna spend money to fix her cuz ill need if for college or im might save for a newer one when i graduate. so now im depressed and i dont have a diesel truck to drive. im lost.
