Don't you hate it when after you have poured your blood, sweat, tears, heart, and soul into you truck to get it just the way you want it, someone pops up and says, "You could have bought a new truck with that money." :pissed:
Everything in my signature I did, except for the gears due to lack of proper tools. I was discussing the kind of engine I was going to put in the truck, and some chimed in, "Why don't you just buy a new a truck." Of course I heard that when I put the stereo in, and when I put the suspension kit on. I get sick of those people who think just because a truck is a few years old, or the fact it has more then 50k on it, that it isn't worth fixing up or modifying. :rant:
My truck is a 95' with 225000 miles on it. No leaks, no problems, original engine, and tranny. I can honestly say that it still drives like it is new.
Most of the people on this site has worked on their rides, some more then others. Some of those rides are old, some new, some with high miles, some with low miles. To me the year and mileage of a truck are just numbers. I would take my truck over any new truck any day. Besides, I like not having payments.

:rant: :pissed:

well, i haven't really ever worked on my truck, but i know how you feel. Most people tell me around here that i could have bought a BMW or a benz instead of my truck. It kindof pisses me off, b/c i think my truck has alot to do with who i am. and i've worked hard to get my truck lookin the way it does, through a job, not my parents money.

It also pisses me off when people think that my truck looks exactly like this other kids truck at my school. It was a stock extended cab blue silverado. Yea its exactly the same... fuckers. what did i do about it? i painted it :D

Oh Oh Oh!!! The worst one I ever got was this:

Me: Yeah thats my truck, I've been building it up for about 3 years and probably have around $25,000 in it without the cost of the truck

Them: Man, for that kind of money you should have just bought a Hummer and be done with it.

WTF????? I had to school that guy on something :nono: :ninja:

:word: to that, miles and age are just numbers, or if you wanna go far enough, bragging rights :D. There were actually badges available for my old volvo that go on the grill and tell about how many miles it has on it, starting at like 300,000 :D Besides, with some of the stuff i see these days, I'd rather have an old truck.

I am glad to see that so many people share the same dislike for those who don't and probably never will understand the intimate bond between a man, his tools, and his ride. :bowtie: :bowtie:

Tavis Noak's "Ground Zero" column in the new issue of Truckin' explains how I feel about new trucks. The "new vehicle" experience wears off well before the often times large, monthly payment. Besides, they don't build them like they used to. :bowtie:

I also like the article in truckin were they say " A 2wd with a locker can go 90% of the places a 4wd can". While that might be true for the lighter trails I beg to differ on the moderate to hard stuff. BTW why buy a beemer or benze when you know 50 thousand others will have one identical when you can build your truck and personalize it to make it one of a kind?

Its the same old story. Those who don't do, will never understand.

So many people out there are happy buying a vehicle and being able to turn the corner and have 10 other cars out there that look just like the one that they are driving. Me, it would just piss my ass off if I saw someone driving a truck or car that looked just like mine. People who moddify their vehicles, for the most part, build them up to the way they want them to look. Sure, you want to turn heads and get attention from others, but when it all gets down to it, you do it for yourself.

My dad for one, criticizes me for spending so much money and time on my truck. He just doesn't understand that I am personalizing it to my standards.

And to all the true Truck Guys and Gals out there, Let the modding Continue and leave em scratchen their heads askin why.
