Circumstances of Birth

Why wasn't I born rich instead of just impossibly good looking? Old NFO and I are both cursed the same.

Actually, I can afford this truck, but I am out of places to park cars even with a three-car garage and a four car driveway at the house. I'm almost car poor. So I'm helping a friend buy this one.

It's a 1949 Dodge Power Wagon.

And those of you who don't love this sort of vehicle won't understand it. You simply won't get it. Don't try.

To put it in context, the friend who is buying this ride bought a Ford Raptor yesterday and last night, pranged it a bit while running though the desert in the dark at 120 mph.  That's what the Raptor is for. The Power Wagon, and more particularly this particular vehicle, is an object of love and adoration.
