After the "71" Pinto, this would be my second choice.

        I'd keep my same ole '98 F150.  First off, I'm not materialistic like that.  Second, I don't want to attract attention.  I love my truck.

        I Agree! Yea earlier in the thread I said might go for a new sierra,

        but my 96 silverado w/ 134000 mi. is just broke in so maybe i'll wait a while,

        while the attention wears off.

         

        right now though I'm driving my wife's car to work cause trucks a/c not working and we are in a roaster.

          Extremely environmentally friendly, six miles to the gallon, with lots of plastic composite components which can be recycled into milk cartons.  Thumbs Up

                    Your dreaming.

                    With that many miles you can plan on spending an average of $300. per month for up keep. (or you could just keep it parked in the drive and "say" that you drive it) And when you get close to 200k miles plan on doing an engine over haul. I have 230k, miles on my work truck and this is the second truck I drove over 200k.

                        So that's why I'm feeling dizzy?? I was wondering. Oh yeah. I can give you a whole shopping list of stuff I put into the truck. Had a distributor put in this past week. lol. At some point it just becomes a challenge to see how long it can be made to keep running. I bought a new replacement truck and then changed my mind, traded it for the "fun" truck and continued pouring money into this one. lol. lol.

                          I still have all my reciepts and records, keep meaning to sit down and see how much it cost me to get this far.

                          right now the a/c is not working so I 'm driving my wife's car to work on these 98 degree days.

                           

                          as far as costs go I do a lot of the work myself, unless special tools are required.

                            Like I said, just keep it parked in the driveway. Then you wont even have to put gas in it.

                              What about a commuter bike with utility trailer?   Idea
