I just watched an episode of "American Restoration" where they bought a complete restorable '61 Caddy four door hardtop for $5000 to make a couch out it. A couch!!!!!!!!!!!! I knew things were going south when after being loaded on a car carrier the guiding driver had to foot slam the drivers side window to get out because the side rails were to high. Everybody laughed, staged I'm sure. I stopped watching when they called for a chain saw.

Ya couldn't find a rusted out old hulk, you uhm...........'s

Hi jack ...as Phred oft does

this is about storm damage and some what about insurance and some side about cool cars

Insurance .... wife and I have paid up Whole life policies our 1950s grand parents started...not big but $150K with no borrowing from them

We each have other term or retirement Life insurance policies

WE have so far managed to pay down to zero balance the big stuff like mortgage and credit debt

WE each joke about how "rich" each will leave the other.
And more than once sat, with drinky poo, on front porch and chat about " what one thing are you going to buy when I crap out and make you rich?"

Her's is pretty simple... a Jeep CJ lifted, every best of the best off road adaptation, and a simple set of creature comforts

Mine is to actually contract Foose, or Jessie James, or the guy in Dallas (forget name) or the guy in Miami (forget name) to find and make me the dream 59 caddy

Screw the kids inheritance

I almost just spit-out my peppermint-schnapps Phred! Laughing I must say though; I love old Jeeps.. and most of the other small classic 4 x 4 vehicles having a short wheel-base. IH "Scouts".. early Ford "Bronco's", Willy's Jeep, CJ's.. equipped with a snorkel air-breather of course. Those are my domestic choices.. but an old Toyota FJ Land-cruiser would certainly be a candidate for a post-apocalyptic vehicle to survive in.. along with a few Jerry-cans of fuel, ammo, CB radio, water and food-rations.
