34 years old (made in May 1985) and looking good despite a little more rust. I felt a little melancholy driving it today. It will cost over $180CDN/$133USD to fill the tank on it this summer, the people with skills to repair/restore old cars are retiring every day and electric cars are everywhere. I passed a Bolt with a plate that said L8R GAS. I feel that the time of the truck is passing.

Likewise, Langley Township, where I live is also undergoing a transformation. The farms and industry of the past are giving way to condos and townhomes at an alarming pace. The photos today are of old things. Rusting away.
