Thank so much to everyone who has responded to this thread.
I'm not at all concerned about having to locate parts for an older vehicle. I know a mechanic who can source them, or one of the male members of my
family will assist me in junk yard picking. I have junk yard picked before, for a window crank and a tail gate, so I at least know to do that.
I definitely won't be getting a big ol' truck like in that video (though it is cool) because I want the ability blend in.
that in to OP. Those links/keywords are extremely helpful, I have been able to make a few Bookmarks. That's the type of research I am looking
An old Ranger is definitely something I'd be interested in, I had one before but it was 1990s and I'll need one at least a decade older.
I will take seriously the warning about diesels being harder to work on yourself if you know nothing of cars...I basically know nothing & the plan is
to learn MY CAR and I didn't realize diesels might be harder to grasp...but I'm also sure you understand why I would be wanting diesel. The only
thing I currently know about them is how to start one in the cold.
And oh, Land Rovers, man, that would be nice because I just like the look so much! (Totally beside the point though.)
Thank you guys for pointing me in some directions to head. It is much appreciated. With a narrower field, I can research easier, and shop easier
