I love my Scout. And seems everyone with a Scout has both wild and fond stories of what they've done with them. For example my dad actually used to plow soil with it. Alas it seems all scouts are plagued by cancerous rust, countless electrical gremlins and obscene fuel consumption. I know it's a blasphemous question ... but why would someone choose a Scout over something like a Toyota truck/4runner/landcruiser or land rover or jeep or military vehicle? What are the advantages of a Scout over others?
