  Well, my little brother, after trying for years to kill it off, has
promised me his '91 Ford F150. It's a straight-6 standard, is about to
wear out the second clutch, has stranded him once when the drive shaft
split at the weld (he'd known it was bent for a month, aka "his own damn
fault") in '96. He takes very good care of it, but has never had the
valve covers off.
  The kicker? It's on its fourth trip around the odometer. 329,000+
miles, and I wouldn't hesitate to take off for Anchorage in it.
  Plus, it's on-topic.
  Price - free to me. Probably worth $600-$800 in Texas.
  As they say, Your Mileage May Vary.
