@flowerlandfilms could make the movie based on that narrative arc alone! I restored my last vehicle to perfection only to find that the world doesn’t work as imagined. COVID, retirement abroad and a little border skirmish with a nuclear power really upped the ante for longterm holdouts. Life changes – not in predictable ways.I am keeping until it dies
FPace is a damn nice vehicle from a legendary stable of classics. It would make a great character with the right owner cast. But as importation of older trucks became problematic, overseas shipping skyrocketed and this being its second year in storage – the old Tahoe is not going to follow.
As a grocery getter, trailer tow or Sunday drive the ICE longterm holds are a privilege to own, use and enjoy. As long as you can afford them, not just cost but considerations are mounting against the ownership scheme that’s been erected since ever. The last car you own may not be until the day you die!
