Even so, I've been driving a 1989 Bronco II for the past 3 months or so. I haven't been wild about it, but it has at least run well after I put some money into repairs. Everything on the truck works. Even so, it's just not a very good road vehicle. You feel every bump, every jolt. This makes a long drive less pleasant than it should be.
I finally got tired of that, and went out and bought a 1995 Chevrolet Blazer. This one's a 4x4, 4 door version. Looks ratty, has about the same miles on it as the Bronco (206K or so), but much more nicely equipped and quieter, with a somewhat softer, more stable ride. vakkotaur commented on the test drive that he wished we'd had that on the trip to Penguicon. I agree.
More repair bills are coming, but I think I can get it in the same kind of shape the Bronco is fairly inexpensively. The air conditioner didn't work, but two cans of R-134a fixed that. The rest is minor.
