That’s what I’m talking about…..the old stuff.
The sad part of this is knowing that at some point “old” becomes “vintage”.
It’s all a matter of description….but with a subtle change in description comes a not so subtle change in price.
But “price” and “cost” aren’t always the same thing.
How much would it “cost” my spirit to never own or restore something so cool as an old….er, vintage…truck like this?
Awwwww….I have so many other important needs to attend to before I add “vintage truck” to the list….I better back off this one.
But if I had the choice between getting somewhere slowly in style….or getting somewhere in a vehicle without any personality or pedigree…I’d choose the slow ride any day.
I’m getting old enough now that the vintage stuff wasn’t that old when I first took an interest in it.
A truck from the 50’s was only 30 years old back in the 80’s….when I first had enough money to possibly buy one.
Now….a truck from the 50’s is really an old ride.
My 86 Ford is going to be a vintage truck soon.
Who could deny me that?
Who saw that coming?
Everything familiar is vintage someday if you can ride out this life long enough.
I will be nostalgic for the weirdest crap if I can just hang on.
I can hardly wait.
