i drove a toyota echo [small version of a corolla] for 300,000 miles and used an old buick to haul my trailers. i got rid of them and got a subaru outback because i had to be able to tow a small trailer and at least it gets about 30 mpg.
in over 20 yrs of driving to work 25 miles to the icu i was never late once with the echo. i live in n. wi, snow is a factor. and i bought the echo 13 yrs ago for $8500 with 30,000 miles on it. i guess those days are gone.the sube is nice but $$$.

2013 Silverado regular cab, long bed. I added a Weatherguard ladder rack I bought at an auction for $125($600new), with a hand crank cable winch, V6 engine.The rack is for my canoe or 4 wheeler.

I am sick that GM quit making work truck cabs so they can raise the prices on all their trucks.I absolutely will not buy a Colorado because when they first come out, the engines were JUNK.

Ford F150, had one, at 50,000 miles the radiator supports rusted away

Ram Trucks, rust buckets, too many recalls.

A 2008 Ford F-150 FX4, 5.4 L Triton. I have 237,000 + miles on it. I just replaced the timing chain, which is the first major maintenance needed.

Runs like a champ, doesn't use any oil. 15 mpg on average, a little better HWY.

I get to drive my wife's 2017 CTS once in a while.

2015 Prius V (the "station wagon"). We bought it last month to replace a 2005 Prius which we had also bought when it was 3-4 years old.


Several years ago I calculated that the Prius had already saved us about $6,000 in gas compared to what most of the neighbors were driving. And unlike the old Chevy Blazer which is our backup vehicle, I can carry 8-foot lengths of lumber inside the car without having to put one end on the dash.

I bet the power wagon is a hoot to drive with the 4bt. Surprised you did not go with a 6bt.

Itís a ton of fun , itís an old forestry truck , step side short bed , 3/4 ton . Dana 60 front and rear , both have Dana LSD in them and a 205 transfer case . Hydraulic 20 ton winch on the front . Itís bullet proof and gets 26 MPG . The reason for the 4 BT is my Buddies said ď you canít do it ď , well 70k miles later itís still smokin ! Rust is its worst enemy . Iím not smart enough to post photos or I would post photos of all the toys I drive from time to time .

You built the Power Wagon to last and you cannot go wrong with 26 mpg. Being a 1979 model, I can imagine the rust issues. The stepside models are classic. I have always wanted to build a Power Wagon W300 (1946 to 1968 version) with the 4bt and manual trans, but lack of space and funds holds me back.
