Sears Tractors and Volvos seem to be my thing. I see a correlation with my style. I must like old and square for some reason. Quality and reliability are always my main concern before looks but I cannot say I don't like things looking nice.
The caption of the day got me thinking as I saw a newish but grubbed up car and I don't like it when my stuff is that much of a mess it makes my brain hurt....I mean really don't people take care of their stuff. Don't get me wrong I buy junk all the time (as my wife tells me) but to me its not junk its just neglected and needs my help.
Here is one of my Volvos I got a few years ago that I saved.
My volvo collection ...
This red one is my daily driver with 260K miles does not burn , use , or lose a drop of oilbetwen oil changes and has cost me 1.65. in repairs the last two years. When I got this car it was a last chance or its going to the scrapper, I put about 600.00 into the car when I got it. New brakes exhaust , bushings, fixed a few switches and this thing has been a champ.
This world has become so disposable its actually quite a shame. After driving this car around for the past two years and not having any car payments I will never buy a new car again. Heck This one will most likely last the rest of my life unless a tree falls on it or something beyond my control.
