I'm seeing why some times you might as well just pull the motor to do the work. Crazy!

Since I took my classics out, it has been a regular topic of conversation lately.....my POS plow truck is probably the most reliable (as far as DD drivers of course....my 77 and 79 would no doubt be the most reliable vehicles we own as far as dependability goes IMO) vehicle we use regularly.....everytime something goes down on it, the fix is CHEAP and QUICK.....anything happen in the Expi or KR and it's in a high priced shop for a week.

A friend of mine who works on large heavy equipment and trucks says he's only running the late model rigs for his business as they are EASY to fix and parts are EVERYWHERE and they're more RELIABLE......I think I'd live this philosophy with vehicles if the wifey didn't have to have the comforts the newer vehicles provide.

The comforts are nice, Ken. I purchased a newer vehicle(Can't say what kind ) to have as a work vehicle/daily driver. I paid cash for it, but I will be reimbursed for mileage when I start work in July. The '78 sits a lot now, which is probably good. When I do drive the '78, it is always a good feeling.

Couldn't have said it better Ken!

I said what smell....

That was CRUEL! I'd show a picture to prove you otherwise, but I can't do that either.

Unless it's a diesel anything, for many years now, properly running Fords don't really *stink* other than briefly after a cold start and *maybe* going up a hill with the pedal floored. Now on the other hand, getting behind a GM vehicle on a steep hill and especiall if it's floored or got a trailer behind it and ...... ewwwwwwww
