Who else tows with a pre-90's vehicle?

Saw a very nice mid 70's Ford F-series PU towing a camper the other day in town and wondered if anyone else on here town with a older vehicle. I obviously know that they are not as reliable or effecient as whats on the market today but thought that was pretty cool to see. Heres my part timer TV..


*Currently trailer-less but shopping
07' GMC Envoy w/ P2 controller (current TV)
88' Chevy K5 Blazer (soon-to-be TV)
74' VW Superbeetle (1303)

Now that's a smart man. These new trucks are a joke. I wasted good money to upgrade to a 2011 F-250 6.7 and hear nothing but horror stories on those motors.
Once had a 1985 F-350 dually with the 460 gasser, 4 speed manual. There is nothing that could kill that truck. Never gave any problems even after hauling over 11,000 lbs for 150k miles. Even the clutch was original. It had a 4:10 gear, sounded like nascar motor in the left lane wide open. Of course now with the ethanol in gas, the carb would have been replaced a few dozen times but that thing ran like hell.
