    buying a new car is the easy way. anybody with money can do it.
    maintaining an old car takes more effort, and shows character.

    a colleague drives an old car.
    ...had share of folks' bias against old cars.
    many older colleagues here, drive old cars.

    "pag bago't magara ang kotse, sa estudyante yan. pag luma ang kotse, consultant me ari niyan."
    our parking directors here have heavy respect for old cars. alam nila, hindi estudyante ang nagmamaneho.

    Yes doc, sa old cars ako natuto mag linis or palit ng spark plugs and contact points, with timing (dwell angle) adjustment according to "feels", linis carb, palit drive belts etc.
    Heck, even pagpapalit ng mga crossjoints sa 4x4 namin noon natutunan ko out of necessity and curiosity, hehe.

    I miss the simplicity of the mechanicals of cars back then.

    Same here. I had an old Lancer na carb. I could do little things such as change bulbs or kalas kalas sa interior. Kaya ko rin i change oil. Malakas loob ko magbaklas pero pag di na mabalik, good thing I had my brother to fix my mess haha

    Yung present car ko, I never even open the hood.

    wala tayo magagawa ang society natin judgemental

    pag di ka naka late model car ang tingin sayo can't-afford

    baket ka naka old car kung kaya mo mag new car?

    di nila naisip na meron mga tao practical mas prefer ipunin ang pera para sa mas importanteng bagay

    kung ok pa naman ang lumang kotse baket kailangan palitan?

    di naintindihan ng ibang tao yan

    kasi ang ibang tao image conscious

    gusto ipakita sa mga tao asensado sila

    nakikipag sabayan sa iba

    Very true.

    When I bought my sub 1M vehicle, sabi ng mga naka SUV friends ko na ďbakit yan lang ang binili mo?Ē I answered them that since I donít have 1M, why should I buy a vehicle of that value?

    Note: at least I did pay cash Do people discriminate against old cars?

    Through my observation, the answer is yes.

    If I drive the OTJ series 1989, some drivers simply cut right in front at times and seldom get a 'salute' from the gate guard on duty unless he recognizes the driver 🤣🤣🤣
