Some old pictures…

Thought I’d post this: Photo gallery I’m working on scanning in all my old photos from Newman and other stuff, and posting them there for anyone to see. If people have digital photos and would like me to add them there, let me know smile Anyways, for all you old newmanites, check it out, see what you think. I’ve only got a few there at the moment.

Hmm, a 4×4?

by on Mar.10, 2004, under General

I’m trying to figure out what vehicle I should look at. I’m leaning HEAVILIY towards pickup truck (although an SUV would work as well). I definitely know one thing – I want a manual transmission. I thought I wanted a 4×4 as well, but I’m wondering if I really need a 4×4.

I’ve never really owned a 4×4. I’ve owned several front wheel drive vehicles, and those have handled snow fine. Further, my very first truck, an 84 F150 was rear wheel drive, and I managed with it. Further, my Dad hasn’t ever owned a 4×4 until the last few years, and he got along fine, even in New Hampshire. It’s just a question of whether a 4×4 is really worth the money. I’m not planning on doing any real off-roading, and I can probably get into my grandmothers fine with a 4×2.

If I don’t do a 4×4, then should I look for anything else? I’m thinking maybe just an extended cab, manual, 4×2 might work well for me. And before anyone says it, yes, I know gas is going to stink, but that’s the price I pay for a truck. Particularly since I’m looking for a large pickup truck, i.e. a F150 or 1500 of some sort. So, any comments from the few readers? Suggestions? Thoughts? Etc.?
