They dont have to be shorties to be cool or fun. In fact I think the short wheelbase is too small to fit what I want on the inside.

Just do it and enjoy.

What '59 said^^ I use to wonder about it as well though..just wait and get a shorty but, I actually rather like my 3/4, wouldn't want an extended for my lifestyle..cities bleh. I've a tough time putting money into the Dodge sometimes because of the terrible blow by and I'm off and on about it being propane, which is a plus right now with gas being bad right now..provincial politics.

Nope! I love my standard wheelbase Ford. I maintain it and spend what needs to be spent to keep it in the best shape I can. This year I might even spend a little extra to make it look pretty, too.

My 83 is a shorty, and so is the 65.... my 86 Dodge and 68 Chevy are long wheelbase.... it's nice to have choices. Imagine how dull it would be without them.
