It surely be.
Just that I don't relish the break downs. I like the fact that I have put a neglected but otherwise usable machine back into operating condition, and can keep it that way as long as I want. If something should go wrong, I can fix it, but I don't look forward to breakdowns.
1600 miles on my Grande since the engine rebuild and there's no where I
wouldn't take it for fear of not being able to make it back.
