07 Ford Focus with 241,500 miles. Regular maintenance/oil changes with replacement of the brakes/tires when needed. New power steering pump at 200k. It is an ugly little beast but it keeps on going.
Should we change your screen name to Lilredford?Paid $400 for my daily beater a long while ago. Keeps my GMC nice and saves tons of fuel plus the tires and backrack were worth more than $400.

Odo quit at 192k before i bought it. It’s given me some crap as expected but nothin i cant handle and it’s never left me stranded. Had to put a front brake line on it a couple weekends ago and have slowly restored(ish) the interior as Ive found decent parts at junkyard. Its fun to drive being a manual and pretty bulletproof though, 2.3, 5 speed, manual 4x4, manual locking hubs, just manual everything. Wont win any races or beauty contests but i like it for the money. Also it was allegedly in a tough truck contest but if drives fine.
Did this a couple weeks ago with mine. Dock bumpers were to big to fit through the tunnels connecting our 2 buildings and we had to move 4.

Honestly i haven't like a truck as much as this one in a while and it absolutely unexplainable lol. My GMC has tons of power, heated leather, remote start, rides smooth, etc but for whatever reason i prefer to drive this lol.
Nah it probably wont last lol. The trucks i like are accident magnets for some reason. Ive had a long history of big red GMs dating back to high school and my current GMC kinda counts. Its a red GM leveled with bilstein 5100s, 1.25” RC body lift and 35s.Should we change your screen name to Lilredford?
We were on the road yesterday when I popped in and posted this so I wouldn't lose the thread. This is the one I drive the most bit I switch between three trucks. Here are my other two. The blue 89 is the one we are currently driving on our round trip to Port Angeles, WA. In Montana now on our way home.
We have averaged 15mpg with the 89. I'm impressed.Sold my 9000 mile Tacoma to CarMax for $5000 more than I paid for it. Bought a 2013 Tahoe ppv with 71,000 miles. Planning a DOD/AFM delete in the spring. Gotta love 12 mpg.

I have 0 doubt that me and my foot are to blame for the poor gas mileage.We have averaged 15mpg with the 89. I'm impressed.
Are you buying a kit to do the delete?Sold my 9000 mile Tacoma to CarMax for $5000 more than I paid for it. Bought a 2013 Tahoe ppv with 71,000 miles. Planning a DOD/AFM delete in the spring. Gotta love 12 mpg.
