Anyone else...

Run out of cash before you run out of projects on the Jeep? Never used to have that problem, but being retired/retarded(you pick which) and on a fixed income now, I'm having to pick and choose when to do maintenance and modifications/upgrades. Obviously maintenance wins out, but it's not nearly as much fun.

I am not retired, but I sure can relate. I have an 8 year old and a 12 year old. I am not sure what I have less of...Money or Time.

I'm with you, got a 3yr old and a 6mo old and no money left over for mods. All I can do is dream and hope for a rich dead uncle I don't know about to leave me some moddin money.

We still have the last of 7 boys in the house...I haven't had project money in more years than I care to think about.

Basically just maintenance and a mod/project when I can sneak it in, or "justify" it.

BTW BadMojo, I'm a former resident of the GBC/Mabank area.

Job. I'll be headed back once I retire (I'll be eligible in 4 years, whether I can afford to is another matter). If you saw someone driving around in a rusty 79 Cherokee WT, that was probably me.

Yeah, I didn't want to retire but with my heart problems I was more or less forced to. Oh well, gives me plenty of time to think up good projects even if I can't afford them now lol! Stay warm up there in all that cold!!!
