    I love my 2002 Tacoma. Had it six years, frame replaced, 2.7 5 speed, 160,000 miles.
    Nothing out there I'd trade it for. Truck.jpg

    When I saw the pic, I thought I might have another view of that truck (same young lady?) floating-around in my archives. Sure enough...

    Must be my age, or maybe childhood memories of these trucks in daily life, but I would rather have the truck !

    The maintenance costs exceeds the fun factor on that hood ornament.

    :D

    It may or may not be an age thing. I'm 47. And, at least I understand something about the truck. I understand absolutely nothing about the hood ornament. Like you, I just know that the maintenance costs are not worth the hassle, on the latter.


    That's probably why I have several trucks, and no girlfriend. And, with any luck, it'll stay that way. :-)

    Same here !

    If you really wanna have some fun, call your married friends at 10 pm Wednesday and say, “Hey let’s take off on motorcycles in the morning and come back Sunday!”

    They normally hang up or start cussing !

    In 1986 money he spent about $20,000... I don't know that seems like he was taken to the cleaners. Considering at the time mid 60s ford trucks were selling for about $1,000, $2,000 if the were nice with lowish miles and desirable engines. Hell a brand new XLT Lariet 1986 F150 was only $13k.

    Not all of them. I'm happily married with three young'uns and I take off all the time to go on multi-day motorcycle trips with my brother. In fact, last weekend we took our wives on a three day mini-vacation over in Deadwood and we got to talking about it and realized that in the last ten years I've taken less than 10 days of vacation with just my wife (just us, no kids) , yet somewhere between 50-60 (or more) days off riding bikes with Dave. She knows I love her and enjoy time with her, but she also knows I need time out on the bike. Anytime I get too grumpy she tells me to shut down the shop for a few days and go for a ride. She also has never complained about me dragging home antique cars and trucks and will often tell me if she sees an antique for sale that she thinks I would be interested in.

    Yes, she's a keeper.

    Looks a bit like mine, although ^^^ this one is a real Napco I'm guessing. Not many folks would do a chassis swap and go with a divorced transfer case. It also appears to have a well-worn Napco badge on the front fender.

    :lol3 When I bought my W-200, it had 9.00 - 16.5 Firestone "Wide Ovals". I remember this distinctly, as I had one start to fall apart in west Texas on my drive back from A school in Mississippi. I was lucky enough to find a Firestone dealer that was open that Saturday afternoon and had a pair of them in stock, (it turned out one of the other tires was not long for this world, too. Or they finally found someone to sell those things to, :imaposer)

    I don't think I have thought about wheel adapters since having them on my '69 dune buggy (in '69) so it just never occurred to me. I could see those tires forming their own clearances if that was driven on many new England roads.
