I have an opportunity to pick up an 85 Dodge D350 dually flatbed from work for around $100. The truck runs but ATM we're using the backhoe to push start it because it needs a solenoid (just replaced the starter). Well, we were until the yoke on the driveshaft broke anyway. Should run around $750 to do the repairs and the truck runs like a demon. Oh.. and it needs tires. All 6. I have no need for this truck in regular life. I am only looking at it because on the offchance an EMP ever hit, our late model trucks will be out of commission. For no more than I'd spend getting this one fixed and some pipe cowcatchers welded on it, it wouldn't bother me to just stick it in the shop as a "just in case". I know it's a gas hog but we generally keep a few thousand gallons in overhead tanks at work so should the worst case scenario arrive, I think I'm pretty covered for fuel for a bit. Problem is the Mr. is going to go into orbit. He just rolls his eyes on the guns, food, compound bow lessons, "camping gear", etc but an ugly, battle scarred, sherman tank of a truck is going to really drive home that this isn't just my "amusing tin foil hat hobby". Any opinions on whether this is worth a fight?
