I have owned my '80 diesel pickup since it was ten years old. Mileage now is 236K. Original interior was replaced with nicer parts from a Jetta and seats from a GTI. Sway bars are installed front and rear. The work rack was fabricated from aluminum and works very well. Rust has been a problem underneath, but I still use it as a work truck and it pulls my catamaran to and from the beach in the summer.
