Let 'em laugh!!!!
While they are still paying off thier brand new 4x4 with all the bells and whistles, You and I are going to work in our old but reliable pickups.
Mine is a 1993 Chevrolt C1500. I got it for a grand cash. The paint job was crap, But 100 worth of paint, some work, and now it looks as good as any other truck. Signs were 20 bucks eack. and Now MY Truck
is looking just as professional as any out there.
I used to work for a guy who had a real old D-6 dozer, it used about 3 quarts of oil a day. I asked why he didnt buy a new one-He told me 'with oil at 89 cents a quart, and a new dozer costing about 80 grand, well I can put a lot oil in that one for 80 grand'. He's right, Its now how new, or how pretty, its will the equipment do the job, cheap enough every day to justify not buying a new one.
By the way he was RRRRRRRRIIIIIIIIICCCCCHHHHH at the time, and I bet his kids are now to as that was 30 years ago, and he was in his 70s then
