The car club guys meet for brunch on Fridays. Today was the first time I had been there in a while. It has rained like hell all night and day. I drove my daily driver. My 1926 Model T Ford. It is a very nice, finished car. The heater works great. From the outrage you would have thought I had committed the ultimate sin. All good natured, of course, but they meant it! My answer was, "I am 70 years old. How long does the damn thing have to last?" I built everything on this car including the frame. I had the body sandblasted. I sprayed epoxy primer on it. 4 coats of good enamel paint, top to bottom. Then had the fenders and running boards rhino-lined. I have done as much as possible to rust proof it. I am going to drive it. I built it to be my DD. I can fix anything on it. It cost way less to put on the road than a new pickup that I can't fix a damn thing on. My son doesn't really care for it. He wants my roadster. He'll just sell it and I really don't care about "the next guy". I'm going to get the goody out of this car. Not "the next guy". The only reason I don't drive the car is if the dropped front axle is pushing snow, which doesn't happen very often around here. I have no interest in driving anything newer. I've had it with computer controlled crap. Unless it gets wrecked or something, I'll bet this car will out live me by a mile. Yeah, I have a lot of blood, sweat, and tears in this car, but it is just a car. It never was an investment! I know I am in a very small group on here. Very few of you guys actually DD your cars. I just wonder what you are saving them for. I can see a few reasons to want to save your car for sons or daughters. But I think you are missing out on a whole lot if you are saving them to sell after you're gone. OK. Rant over. I just thought about this all the way home from the restaurant in the rain. How many of you guys actually DD your cars or trucks?
