It's sad most cars today are marketed to a dumbed down generation of kids with short attention spans, with cars being hawked by Rappers, T.V. stars , and anyone else who will make you feel "cool" for buying your "pimped out" ride. Cars used to be sold on a reputation for quality and/or performance. I'm sorry for such a long rant, but it's sad when you go to test drive a $35,000 dollar car and know that it probably will not even last the length of the car loan!
Tell me about it. You spoke the truth on that. Here's why I love my Ranger, and Factory Five Roadsters. You can make it your own any way you wish and my little danger ranger has already out lasted 2 brand new Evo's and 2 other brand new rangers. The kids that buy these things don't even know what an oil change is. I asked how well it performs and get somewhat of a decent answer, I asked how often they changed their oil and here's the answer I got: HUH?

What's next? I don't think that will last very long myself. Someone will screw up the process somewhere down the line. They don't build cars anymore they slam junk together and call it a car or truck.

You'll get used to the new truck. I know what you mean, I miss my 67 Mustang, but I love my Ranger. More utility, better mileage, lol and people don't mess with it cuz it blends in so well. My Mustang, I always had people staring and asking questions like "want to sell it, How much?," etc. I mean it was nice and all to get the questions, but the downside is thieves and vandals - Stolen emblems, mirrors, etc (no, I didnt have a garage). Keep the old one and wrench on it once in a while, heck you'll probably get it on the road sometime.

That's the downside to an older vehicle. people steal off it (unless you're pretty well known for going off on people like me when someone steals off you). My uncle keeps a Vintage 66 stang in the garage under a cover. The tags keep it from being messed with. registered antique tags help out alot. Thieves don't mess with those too much specifically for that.
