Our second vehicle, the truck, is my late father-in-law’s 1995 Nissan. It qualifies as an antique. Hubby has invested so much in it over the last year he could have bought a brand new truck with all the bells and whistles. But he’s sentimental.I was going to buy me a 'newer' vehicle than my 2001 Silverado, but have decided now I'm just going to drop $5K on the truck to fix all the nuances (including $1K on bodywork), new suspension, second part of the drivetrain repair, new brakes and refresh the internals and the 2008 after market stereo.
It's too nicer vehicle to get rid of otherwise, I brought it new and it's been in a garage for almost all it's life (when not being driven) and only got a shy over 100K miles on it. And since I'll be leaving these shores to head back to blighty in about 5 years it really doesn't make sense to do anything else because I'd probably loose over $10K over 5 years on any used vehicle I buy.
Some years ago when on a work trip, my husband had that. He described having the sliver removed as the doctor drilling into his eyeball. Makes me shudder just to think about it.having it removed was an interesting experience too - hopefully yours just needs antibiotics or similar.
