    Well.....I finally did it. I didnt wanna! But I did it.
    Ya know when you have something for a long time, ya get kinda partial to it?
    This wasnt just some thing. I mean.... we were together for 10 years.
    I lost my dog, now this. I am truly reduced to a country song.
    The problem is....I am gettin to be a real softie. Ya see, my daughter said she didnt like it any more. It was too loud and it was dirty. But it wasnt that way just a while ago. :(
    My wife kept shaking her head in disaproval every time I went off to work. Thing is, it was MINE! Nobody elses.:D
    Well, thanks to New Friggen York and their big brother link to your inspection...I had to go out and BUY A NEW F*%#ING TRUCK!!!!!!

    Any of you have any idea what those DIRTY, ROTTEN, NO GOOD, SONS A B%#@*ES, WITH A LICENCE TO SCREW YOU OUT OF EVERY DOLLAR YOU MAKE FOR THE NEXT FOUR YEARS wants for a new truck? :mad:
    And to top it off, I see the NYS DOT substation up the road 10 miles is stockpiling tons and tons of fresh SALT for next years coating ensuring you will need another new truck in 10 years.........bastards!

    But the joy....ohhh the sweet joy on the girls' faces as we rode through the country in the smooth wistful motion and quiet ride of a new truck. :)

    I drove an old Cherokee for abut 10 years. It finally died and I had to replace it. One of the saddest days I've had. I luckily found a not so old one though so it's just ugly enough to make me a little happier..I guess. No one but you should make you have to get rid of your truck...It's just not right!:mad:
    Some people change cars every few years. Most truck people I know are not like that. They get attached.

    I still miss both of my trucks.

    First: 1984 Chevy S-10 long bed (BAD 2.8L carbed V-6 GUTLESS WONDER)

    Second: 1972 Ford F-250 Camper Special 2 wd It had a big white tool box gun racks and white and primer gray paint. Didn't look like much but she ran good with her 351 w That burned a lot of oil till I changed the valve stem seals. Steering was a little lose but it was my truck free and clear. I had to sell it to move to TX EFFING ARMY. I will never forgive them for that. Since them I have owned a Ford Escort a Hyundia Accent Honda Pralude and a Saturn Ion. DAMIT I am buying a Ford F-150 4x4 4 door pick up next time.

    Congrats on the new purchase Gus! :p

    I have been looking, slowly and with restraint, at the new truck deals and have been thinking, a lot, about getting a new one before the bad weather hits again later this year. 0% is still free money in anyone's book and several truck companies are offering that now. :cool:

    I would love to see what you got!

    I am still driving my 1982 Blazer. It's one of the big ones with the removable top. I keep putting money into it. But I have assembled almost the entire truck myself. I don't know that I could ever part with it. It will probably have to be totalled in an accident for me to get rid of it.

    I'm still driving the car I bought brand new in 1996. Here it is in front of my parents' house while it was under construction in 2001:

    Red T-Bird with the 4.6 litre V-8. Still runs like a champ with 83,000 miles on it.

    One good thing about living in the desert is that your vehicles last longer.
    I still have my 1974 International Harvester Scout II. Right hand drive.
    Don't drive her every day due to the gas mileage.
    I usually drive my little Saturn Wagon toad. (toad as in towed behind the RV)

    I'm in a similar boat. I just can't pull the trigger and make the decision on what I want.

    Well, Notdku, you and JD should remember one thing: whatever you decide on, it should not be from Government Motors.... ;)

    I like my new Mazda CX-9 that I have, but this thread reminds me of how much I miss my old Subaru Impreza WRX. I regret selling it. Then again I'm probably only remembering the good parts and forgetting all the little things that broke but I still miss it.

    Welcome to the club. I've been out and about looking for some 4-wheel drive vehicle. I saw a nice Jeep Commander for $8K on a car dealer's site but when I went to see it physically, I found out it was only 2-wheel drive. Jeep making 2-wheel drive? Sacrilege. Also looking at H2 Hummers but haven't found one for a decent price. They were overpriced to begin with and used ones, with less than 100K miles are still going for more than a new 4-wheel drive Jeep. I guess I'm going to have to hit the bank and see what kind of vehicle loan I can qualify for. I'm keeping the T-Bird but want an off-roader to go out and tear up the desert around Las Vegas. T-Birds don't do well in the dirt...as I found out 6 years ago when I got stuck for 4 hours in the middle of nowhere...in July.
