I Miss My Old Pickup
I miss my old pickup. It was so easy to work on. I could reach everything underneath the hood. If I need a part, I would just go to the auto parts store and grab it off the shelf. Fast forward today. I drive a 2012 Dodge Ram. One of my headlights went out. In the old days, I would run to the store and pop that sucker in. Now I have to youtube a video to find out how to even access the "headlamp assembly". Some helpful videos say you have to take off the grill, others say no you don't. I ran down to the auto parts store to get the headlamp. I had to tell them the year, make and model, 2x4 or 4x4. Once they got my headlamp for me, I got home with anticipation of tearing apart the front end of my pickup. (which I did with relative ease). Then I find out they gave me the wrong size headlamp. Good thing my wife's vehicle was there so I could run back down and get the right size. I miss my old pickup, except it didn't have a back up camera. I had to use the rearview mirror and common sense.
