What should I do with my heap?
Welp a new truck is in my future as the current truck is just getting too costly. Between cost of fuel for the thirsty sucker and the fact that I'm constantly making repairs, it was time to move on. My dilemma though is that I reaaaally don't want to get rid of the truck. I've sunk so much money into it including a brand new 383 stroker motor, that I just cant give it up. Plus I've owned the truck for damn near 6 years now and its been everywhere with me. It honestly is one of my favorite vehicles ive owned.
The issue is I have no where to keep it. The apartment I'm sure will raise hell if I leave it sit in the parking lot never driven and puking fluids everywhere. My parents offered to let me keep it at the house for a while until we figure out what we do with it but its not permanent. We have a storage unit too but we plan to get rid of that soon. (I suppose I could take over rent for it maybe... idk).
I've debated just selling the truck but as is and even with its issues fixed, I don't see it being worth more than two grand or so. And to me, its too good of a truck to let it go for that cheap. I guess it also goes back to the fact that I don't want to get rid of it.
Right now I have a shortish list of repairs that needs to get done but it is still derivable and I am still driving it nearly every day. Things that need fixed is:
new break booster
new speed sensor
new distributor cap
the truck its self is starting to rust pretty bad and will need bodywork if some one wants it to last.
over all I have thousands put into this truck and especially a lot recently and i just dont want to throw it all away. I know if I sell it, i'll regret it.
So I guess here id ask what you guys would do or suggest?

All these cameras and they can't see a pissed off Indian guy running around for 15 minutes whipping a propane tank in his hand...
