But I just sold my old half-ton for 200 bucks and I'm feeling bad about it.

The old girl was a '93 and I certainly got my money's worth out of her over the last 8 or so years. Still, if I'd taken better care of her, undercoated every fall etc. I'd probably have gotten another couple of years out of her.

Mind you I'd feel a lot worse if I wasn't busy anthropomorphizing the '02 pickup I bought this summer.

I like driving a truck. My truck is the only thing in the world that's unambiguously mine, about the only thing I'd keep unchanged in a perfect world. The basement workshop, the garage, even the damn shed make concessions to other family members... the truck is mine.

So good luck old girl, hope you last a couple more winters in your new yard-plowing job.

is that you rode her hard and put her away wet?

It helps define who I am as a person.

I've never felt much for my cars, but I'm a cold bastard. 

In the meantime the Mrs. is still mourning the loss of her Subaru that died in a crash (nobody hurt except the Subaru, fatal).
