Decisions, decisions

OK, here's the deal. I need to decide which vehicle to drive.

-1984 Mustang w/ built V8 (no specs yet, but has AFR 185 heads!) and 5 spd.

-1948 ****** pickup on 1983 2wd s10 frame w/ 2.5L 4-banger and 5 spd. It looks something like this: http://www.public.asu.edu/~grover/******/g1/ghtml1/b1.html

-1985 F-150 4x4 w/ 300 and 4 spd O/D.

I was actually thinking of driving both the Mustang and the ****** - the fuel savings would more than pay for the insurance. The problem is that I sometimes tow around 4,000 lbs, more than the s10 setup is rated for. The other problem is that these little trucks aren't the best for winter driving as I live in Michigan. I also enjoy the F-150 as it is a fullsize and 4x4. If I do stay with the fullsize, I'll get an F-250 diesel. Let me know your opinions.

I'd roll in the 150. Gas shouldn't be too bad with the 300! An F-250 diesel wouldn't be to bad if you could pic one up. Keep the stang and the 150 definatly though.
