You own a good vintage pickup. And it is still a pup. I have a friend with 350,000 miles on his pickup. I bet you can get another decade out of your Tundra because you know how to properly maintain it.

Other than normal maintenance, in 26 years, I have only had to replace the shifter bushings and brake pads on my Miata. A few years ago, I got a bit nervous about driving with 20 year old belts so I changed them. This winter I plan to replace the original hoses. All the rubber parts have lasted because the engine has never leaked fluids so the rubber does not decay.

BTW, thanks for the list of great NFL linemen. I always enjoyed watching everyone of them play. Do you remember the self proclaimed The Dirtiest Player in Pro Football, Conrad Dobler? He once described line play as *controlled violence mixed with careful technical planning.*
