Better the devil you know. The Collie I mean. Though… If it goes, you’ll lose out big time. What next? Another unknown vehicle? I really hate it when folks kick a man when he’s down and already kicking himself more than anyone will ever know. Failure only happens when you stop trying. Ok, what’s the purpose of the truck? To buy, fix up and sell on at a profit? I don’t suppose so. If I’m right you probably bought it intending to keep it and use it and for it to become a part of the family. I think you have the perfect opportunity to fix this, have a decent truck and prove to your other half that you don’t deserve to get it in the neck.
