It was also a fun vehicle to drive. I didn’t want to give up on it, but things started to go wrong. Dashlights began to fade, the gas gauge didn’t read correctly and, once again, New England’s salty winter roads took its toll on the body.
And finally No. 10, which is my current 2002 GMC Sierra extended cab. Probably one of the better riding trucks I’ve owned. It’s nice to have the extra room in a truck, but I find that it’s just too easy to throw stuff in the back.
So there you have it, folks. I got my license in 1970 and have had 10 vehicles in 43 years. What’s that average out to?... one vehicle about every four years?
I’ve never bought a brand-new vehicle, so I guess Detroit’s present financial debacle must be on the shoulders of people like me, huh?
