Default Cant make a Decision!

Hey guys...first post. Want to see what you thought. I own a 1980 Bronco in pretty good shape for its age. Ive recently invested alot of money in parts but havent installed them yet. I have owned this truck for 12 years and have had dreams of customizing it the way I want to. Ive recently been offered a 68 F100 shortbed with a 360FE. This is definately a dream truck of mine. The guy is offering a equal trade. The F100 is in great shape with 95% of the body work done and is ready to drive. I will be using one of these trucks as a daily driver in a couple of weeks. My commute to work is 38 miles one way. I am torn and looking for opinions. Thanks.

Howdy, and welcome to the club!

Oof! That's definitely a tough decision. If you stick with the Bronco, you'll have put in a lot of blood, sweat, tears, money, but will have the pride of knowing you did all that work to get the Bronco to what you want it.
On the flip side... you get your dream truck. Not sure what other modifications you would like to do with it, or just leave it as is.

One shouldn't love something that doesn't love you back, but when you invest in it, it's difficult not to love it.

Oh the humanity! Eeny, meeny, miney.... squirrel!!!!

Good luck!

Definately is a tough one. The bronco I have already put so much money into over the last twelve years and not made a whole lot of progress. I know both trucks would cost a fortune to drive to work. Just dont want to miss out on this oppurtunity. Regret is a hard thing to live with.
