I love my old truck. Most women wouldn't understand but a truck is very utilitarian, like a leatherman or a rifle with Pictinny rails. I have a truck bed toolbox in the back that has all my tools, cables and straps and I can throw a couple of select rifles and some ammo in it and head for the deepest woods. The old Ranger can go places a regular truck can't and it's fun to drive in the snow. I can haul, tow, push, pull and go places I wouldn't dare with my car.
Yeah, it's all manual; I have to roll up the windows, turn on the headlights, get out and lock the wheels for 4drive and it creaks some. My kid hates it, she says she would never drive my "dirty ole truck, it smells like a farm truck!"
Yep, and that's just the way I like it. :)
Ya'll get in, let's go 4wheeling!
