For the last fifteen years, I have been driving a 1976 Ford F250 pickup.
When people would ask "when are you going to buy yourself a new truck",
<snip> Best I can hope for out of this is I get something that I will be
able to drive for as many years as the last one. R.I.P
Nah, you're looking at it all the wrong way. Get a brand new crate
engine, for something over a grand, have it installed for a bit more,
then you've got a totally reliable truck. And can keep on bugging the
people after you to get a new truck. Best of both worlds. Plus you
save a bundle.
Looks like my two sons are actually (really) getting ready to
finish my "new" truck for me. So hopefully, the new year will see me
hauling wood in it. But, for now my '79 GMC, half-ton, long bed, daily
driver, will do.
You'll never get anywhere if you believe what you "hear".
What do you "know"?
