You know you drive a hardbody when you cut your speedo needle down shorter...and then super glue the two broken pieces back together so it is straight again. And that glue gets all over your fingers too. I've even seen people glue a matchstick onto those broken-off needles, but you have to take off the needle first LOL.

Sorry to pop a bubble here , but mine did leave high and dry when on the way to a job the damn fuel pump quit. I walked back to the house got the chevy and the towbar and drove my rolling toolbox to the job then home again. Do you know how many darned different fuel pumps there are? Too many.

But that was the only time ever. Mine is also a rolling Johnny Cash song, anything from 86.5 to 97, you learn quick what will fit and work.

You know you own a hardbody when the Pick N Pull guys know you by name and tell you where the good parts are.
