Old trucks are fine, but who has the time to dick around dealing with mechanics or attempting major repairs/renovations? I've had plenty of old vehicles in my day. Breaking down in the woods or along the interstate is a highly over-rated experience, no matter how much money you supposedly save by driving some pile o'shit that you're always 'gonna fix'. Hell, I've even wasted my own precious time trying to help a few stranded sportsmen get some heap going that shoudn't a been driven to the grocery store, let alone to the middle a nowhere. I got fish to catch, not tow trucks to wait for. Do everyone a favor...fork over the cash for a dependable vehicle...or stay outta the woods.
