What all work have I done to it that really adds up to the cost in repairs that the truck needed?

Not saying the total is the same you just seem pretty motivated to fix this car and doesn't seem like you had that same motivation w/ the truck...

Ah. That's because the truck had no purpose, it wasn't good on gas, wasn't good in the mud or off road, and wasn't fast.

I drive this car a lot and I like it a lot more then the Mazda, I have put over 2000miles on it in the month I have owned it. I love being able to go fast and get awesome mpg. Its a nifty little car.

The truck hauled you around, correct? If so, then it had a purpose.

It hauled me around and cost me about 60dollars a week in gas.

Not that fast but I like doing 85 on the highway not 60.

I do 85 on the highway with my 4 banger and 33's.

And I can put 2,000 miles on my truck in a week.

Very few, I was only driving to work, school and fun places. The last time I drove to Jacksonville and back (170miles one way) I spent 130dollars total on gas. With the accord I spend about 20bucks for the same drive.

i guess i just like the safety and security of my tank, rather than driving a honda and being vulnerable to the likes of me. I mean, my big steel front bumper is at the same height as your skull when your in a honda. When or if Sh*t hits the fan, who's gonna come out unharmed......... the tank. Is saving a couple miles a gallon really worth it?
