Default My new truck

I pick it up on Oct 22nd, but it'* all mine. Not pretty, but the engine and drive train is sold. Has a 302 with 144k on the odometer. 4 wheel drive with good tires, and new ball joints. A bit rusty, but hey, it'* a 1990. Frame is rock solid. Got it for winter as well as hauling and pulling.

Nice. I've always wanted to pick up a winter beater, just never wanted to spend the money on one lol. It would be nice to store the car and have something to haul my snowmobile around with.

I could have bought a lot of great tools for what I got the truck for. But I need to look at the bigger picture I guess. Not driving the Bonneville year round will be nice. Means I can do more without worry of killing my daily driver. Now add the new car dolly to the truck and I can pick up a disabled car. Or, find a $500 craigslist car that the owner can't figure out, tow it to the shop, do a easy fix and flip it. Pick up a engine or transmission without a problem, haul old parts to the scrap yard.
