Quote from: Lexi on May 19, 2022, 07:33:05 PMGreat post and responses. If I did not do a lot of my own work and have a ton of spare parts, (plus help from this fantastic Forum), I might have considered opting out myself. Had to do it once before, many years ago when I just could not justify it as Jim pointed out; marriage, wanted to save for a house and nowhere to park my land yacht. So I fell on my sword... But I got back in as this affliction tends to be chronic! My biggest concern right now is starting to be the price of fuel. Up here it peaked at $2.10 a litre for regular 87 octane yesterday. As one Canadian imperial gallon is defined as being comprised of 4.54609 litres, that would put fuel cost here at about $9.55 a gallon. For premium the cost jumps to about $10.73 a gallon which is what most of our Cadillacs run best on and what I use (and no corn juice). Perhaps add to that a lead substitute per tank? Price just continues to jump. So for me that will have an impact on the amount of driving I do. First time for that consideration. So yes, I hear yeah. Clay/Lexi

If not your car, you'd be out at the race track or gambling parlor, pro games, etc. It's like paying for a new car one part at a time. Very expensive way to buy one. It just happens to be 55 years since new. This is one reason so many sit unattended for long periods.If you don't think who you vote for is important, then we get into messes like this periodically, when we forget that. You're old enough, like me, to lived through the Carter era. Not much difference now.
Quote from: "Cadillac Kid" Greg Surfas 15364Speaking for myself if I did not do most of my own work and hadn't laid in a good stock of parts over the years it wouldn't make sense for me to use my 75, 76, and 79 as daily drivers. Greg Surfas.
