I just bought a 2008 Ford F150, so I don't mind their newer stuff at all.
The 1998 is staying with me until it just completely stops working. I love that old truck, so there was no way I was going to trade it in. Besides, with its high mileage and some body damage, I'd probably have had to pay THEM to take it!
BTW, your user name cracks me up.
Well the 2008's body style is decent. I don't like the way the bed looks on the new 2011's. I tend to be picky on the body styles of trucks. You can thank my boyfriend for that one.
Haha. I love older vehicles because they have characteristics. They are built with quality, many of the things - not just vehicles - aren't built with the same quality, they build for quantity.
Thank you! I've been sort of obsessed with Batman since I was about 5. He's my hero.

I've had three Broncos, and the starter thing never deterred me, because they are otherwise good trucks, but I made sure the last one I bought had a manual transmission, so even if the starter went I could still drive without it for a day or two, until I could replace it.
$1,100 is a more than decent price, though, in my opinion. :)
I've heard this as well. I'm not too much worried about it, only because my boyfriend is a mechanic and he builds starters and alternators for a living. So I could get one for dirt cheap or even free, and it works because his house is close to mine and so is his work. It's a small town, lol.
Thank you for the warning though!
We went and looked at it today and we managed to talk him down to $1,200. The reason he's selling it is because he wants a sports bike. There's a bit of rust on the doors, but not much. It drives nice, it looks real nice, and it's got one of the better transmissions.
Also, we found out that the Bronco passed emissions with a fast pass, so that's really good news.
My only problem now, is my plan was to get a loan from my parents for $1,400. Just to cover the cost of the Bronco, and the title transfer, plates, the first month of insurance, and half a tank of gas until I get my paycheck. However, my plan kind of fell through when I asked, as my father decided to tell me that he doesn't have that money at the moment.
SO, I can only hope that the guy will still have it in the next two weeks. Ugh. :(
