Anybody check the prices for a 1956 Ford or Chevrolet lately? Just for the fun of it.

I own a 1956 Ford Thunderbird that I have owned since 1966. His name is Norman T. Bird. I bought him for $1600. He is probably worth about $40,000 today.

Has anyone ever converted a healthy quadrasteer 4bymoosaburbon deluxe

into a trailer towing, campah-shell-toting truck, instead of

trading it in unmolested on a purdy new TeeVee?

I dont think so, if you took off your blue tinted oval glasses off you could see your tv-as is about as sharp as it gets.

Brian,

Not to get the thread off topic, but one of my friends from high school bought a 56 T-bird from his retired neighbor and drove it for a few years. When my buddy went to sell I sure wanted to buy that car, but did not have the money. Anyhow, now I own a 59 Chevrolet Apache Pick-up and a 1940 Ford 5-window coupe. Projects that keep me busy and out of trouble. I hope you figure out the right solution for your new truck dilema.

This getting far afield of the original poster's query, however, I can't resist. We own 61% of GM in the US (Canadians own a big piece too), so if everyone avoids GM vehicles, we lose our taxpayer money because GM stock won't sell for much when the government starts to sell it. Cutting off our noses?

Buy the best vehicle for what you need and avoid the politics.

Brian,

Check out post #30 on this thread: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f42/...tml#post886298

SmokelessJoe carries a MiniCooper on a Mercedes flatbed and tows an Airstream—maybe there's a version of this Mercedes that you can put a truck camper on.

CrawfordGene has it right. Forget the politics, test drive them all, diesel and gas if that helps you, and make your decision on which vehicle you like the best and which best suits your needs. It can be amazing how pre-conceived ideas can go out the window after making back-to-back test drives of the various makes and models. It happened to us when we did.
