Mine is close to the one on the right, with a little more, shall we say, patina* and fewer headlights (gone when I got it in 1981).
It is the toughest little son of a gun you ever saw, 72 years old, all original and wiling to do what ever.

This makes me wonder about the status of my Grampa's 8N as we just buried the Uncle who had it.

It must have cost more than a 5 ton, in time if nothing else.

We're spoiled by the ease of maintaining cars these days.
When my uncles drove from MA to AK with a brand new '49 Ford pickup the had to stop and change the oil 5 times.

This 1939 chart shows how much maintenance was required. The interstate highway system made this a joke.

Good lord.

I've had children that required less maintenance.

BigV, we're from Child Protection Services and had a report you've been skipping oil changes on your children. We want to see the service records of scheduled maintenance on all of them. If we find you're remiss in your obligation we will make sure your children, and you, get lubed.


Remember your roots, where you came from, who you are...

I make it a point to get good and oiled as often as possible.

I will be working toward this later this afternoon.

Do you usually get oiled before you get lubed?

Conversely, you could maintain your vehicle, given the time and inclination; whereas nowadays you literally can't change the oil filter (etc.) unless you have a specialized tool the manufacturer devised to prevent you from doing so.
