Thanks. The same day I had the accident, one of my rear brake/tail lights went out. Later that day, I replaced all the lights on the rear of the truck, figuring if one went out, the others wouldn't be

I just shelled out some serious shekels for new tires for my truck (I was on my way to the shop to get them when I had the accident). I also invested in a torque wrench, socket, and breaker bar to use for changing tires should I ever get a flat somewhere I can't get cell coverage to call for help (I pray that never happens since my handicaps would make that difficult to nearly impossible, even with the new tools) and a portable 12v air pump to pump up a tire. I just received an aftermarket TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) that will let me monitor tire pressure and temperature while underway (also, no more crawling under the truck to check the spare).

Later this Spring, I need to get my brakes, all the cooling system hoses, and the shocks and struts replaced.

We could go on and on, eh? But to be fair to Havoc, maybe we should start a thread I know I have enough to keep it rollin'. "Old Trucks Never Die They Just Fade Away...."

It's too bad that in my area (Connecticut), all the older trucks are rusted so badly that they get junked.

I'd really like to buy a 1983 Toyota 4WD.

Nice truck, I've had my eye on a few Toyota's but it always seemed I gravitated to Chevy's. Look around you might be surprised, check those free car mags the local grocer and other stores may have near their exits, ours have a wire news-stand with a couple of versions in them.
Find one you like, go see it and if interested ask the seller if your local inspection mechanic can give it the once over and check it out, if the seller says okay you're halfway home, if s/he balks a bit you might want to steer clear. In PA we have to have yearly inspection and emission's testing I see in CT only the emissions is yearly, so I understand your rust concerns, maybe you can find one on a dealers lot?

You can localize this even further with your home town: 1983 Toyota 4WD Connecticut

Over the years I've had:
  • '61 F- 150 100, really hated to part with this one.
  • '78 GMC K-1500
  • '85 F-150 LT
  • '03 Silverado K-1500
Looks like my next one will be a Ford.


p.s. Apologies Lady F. Havoc made me do it....

Ford didn't have an F-150 back in '61; the half tons were call F-100s. My Daddy had a '66 F-100 that was a sweet little truck. I later had a '62 F-300 crew cab. I was going to replace my current '08 F-150 Screw (Super Crew) with an F-250 Screw (more trailer towing capacity) but decided it was cheaper to keep her and spend part of that money on a stable full of SSDs.

Thank you for the kind words, you'll have to tell me who your health provider is so I can get mine done.

Well I gotta get out and do some chores and errands, the chore part is cleaning up after 'bout a 3.5" wet snowfall, Havoc's probably looking 'bout the same.

Then Havoc and I have to get ready for Tuesday the 14th, It's a little far out, but here's the forecast as of today, I'm in the circle to the left, Tuesday 7AM the storm's on the Delmarva:

Here it reaches CT at 1pm Tuesday:

Murry belated Christmas! Make sure y'all have TP, bread, and milk.

@Anak You do NOT want to use my health provider (I use the term health provider loosely), which is UHC, which they think is United Health Care but I'm convinced is Useless Health Care (sadly, I'm stuck with cheap persons of questionable parentage since they are part of my retirement plan). Every year, I have to fight the cheapskates over my Premarin prescription. This year, it took over two months to get it settled. This is also the year I'm going to file a complaint with the State Insurance board over their continual male bovine biscuits once I get the insurance claim on my accident settled (the insurance of the guy who sideswiped me is trying to weasel out of taking responsibility; I spent an hour on the phone with my insurance company over it today) and a few other "minor" issues I'm dealing with (such as the hole in the floor in my bathroom where the toilet is supposed to be).

Good luck with the snow. I prefer shoveling sunshine myself (there is a reason I live in a desert).

Didn't mean to ruffle your feathers Jeannie, I guess my wife got out in time, she had UHC during her cancer treatments, and as long as everything was up front and authorized she didn't have too bad a time, there were some calls that were close but UHC always came through.
The last few months her work switched over to Cigna, you want to talk about questioning everything? UHC was a breeze compared to Cigna. Ah... waking up to the smell of sausage gravy and bovine biscuits for breakfast, yum!

Show that other driver how you use a breaker bar that might get him to wise up. Winter's been kind to us so far this year so I guess one big one won't hurt, desert? make sure you check your boots in the morning, we don't need for you to get a scorpion sting and throw off your Premarin medication.
