My mother bought this truck back in 1995 as a bank repo. 11 years and 1 owner later, it is still running like a champ. Except for switching to bucket seats from the standard bench, nothing else has been done other than routine maintenance. I plan on keeping this pickup until it either rusts through or the engine gives up the fight (which I expect to take at least another 100,000 miles). It has no air and some rust, but is still perfect to haul the dogs and other large items as well as be my backup vehicle. Don't know if the newer trucks are as good as this one - but if they are, I'd definitely go for one when mine gives up the fight.
The fact that you can't seem to kill it!
Like another poster, my interior vents are falling apart, but since I don't have air, it's only a problem in winter.
