It’s not that I want to get rid of it because it’s old. My Honda is a 2001 model and I still feel like it’s new.
In 2007, the engine went out and left us stranded in Joplin. Chad came and got us, the truck got towed back to our town and we decided we weren’t going to keep it and that’s when we bought the Highlander. But then Vince decided to keep the truck and had a new engine put in it and that’s how we ended up with an extra vehicle.
But now, we need a pickup that will haul a trailer with a tractor, or a few livestock or even pull a garbage trailer to the landfill since we don’t have trash pickup out here. The S-10 will pull light trailers but not the kinds of trailers we need it to pull. We do not need 4 vehicles but we need a larger pickup . . that’s why I want to get rid of the S-10.
The S-10 is in good shape, with not many miles for its age, has the best air conditioner of any of our vehicles, and a great stereo system. It’s never had an accident. It has no rust. It looks pretty darned good for its age. But, it just isn’t the pickup that we need these days so unless it absolutely stops running and cannot be fixed, I doubt Vince will get rid of it. I know he won’t get rid of the Honda or the Highlander so . . we’re going to eventually end up with 4 vehicles and I think it’s crazy to pay insurance and taxes on 4 vehicles for 2 drivers! But, so long as all my needs and wants and desires are met, I won’t squawk too much about the vehicle situation around here.
