Old Truck vs. New Car – MDW319

Should I buy a NEW car or an old truck?

Old trucks (and cars) are simple, analog, easy to work on and troubleshoot. New cars are full of crap like “Body Control Modules” and “Anti-lock brake controllers” Shit that cost a ton of money to do something that is mostly un-needed.

I'm toying with the idea of getting a Classic daily-driver from the 60's or 70's. For the most part, I don't drive a lot. If I buy an old truck, in 10 years, I will still have an “old truck”. Might even be worth more than I pay for it or not, but it won't be 10's of thousands of dollars less because it's a new-fangled car that looses money by the second.
