The Exploder has 169,000 miles on it now. Stuff is wearing out. I'd love to buy a new vehicle, but I'm in enough of a financial bind right now that taking on a new car payment isn't a good idea. Plus there's that old fuel-economy vs. hauling-capacity argument. I need a vehicle that can haul lighting equipment as well as towing a trailer.
I'd really like it if stuff stopped breaking for a while (including me).
