Unhappy An old friend passes on

Buster, my '86, finally suffered catastrophic uni-body failure brought on by thirty years of northern Illinois salt and corrosion. My wife, an xj owner and lover herself allowed me to keep him around for a few extra months just so I could say

"I have owned that truck TWENTY years!"

I'll be depressed for the next few days. I figured you folks would understand the most.

Sorry to hear that. I'll hit the "owned 20 years" mark with my '92 around Christmas time.

Re: An old friend passes on

I've never owned a vehicle for twenty years, current record is about 15, and I'd be devastated to lose it then. Sorry for your loss.
88 MJ on 40's. 98 XJ on 35's. 98 Dodge, 52psi of boost. 94 Miata LS4. 70 Buick GS455. 01 Harley, been to 46 states. 05 KTM, 576cc. 06 Husky, girls need bikes too. 2011 R6, girls need sport bikes too. 99 Toyota Avalon, daily. 97 Miata, girls apparently need miatas too.
And everything fits in the garage!
