A recurring phenomenon has me wondering,
Why, when the price of gas goes UP subsantially, do so many people dust off and repair for active duty their OLD vehicles ?
This Ford dealer shop looks like you’ve stepped into a time machine !
87 F150, 89 E150, 97 F150 , 85 LTD, 98 Contour, 01 Escort, 92 Explorer…and that’s just in the last week !
Three of those has rotten fuel and needed fuek tank steam cleaning with new fuel pumps too. They’re investing big bucks in getting these things back in service .
---- and this is not the first cycle of moldy oldies. ----
The last time fuel pushed 4 dollars, the same time machine appeared in our shop .
Great for business but a huge curiosity to say the least.
True , some people invest in a new high mileage vehicle at this point, but what is the mindset that brings out the OLD vehicles ?
