Post subject:  the kid has his own wheels...

My younger son had been bugging me nearly everyday this summer about buying a truck by showing me ads on craigslist. We finally pulled the trigger on one around his 16th b-day in early August. Its a 1994 Ford F-150XLT with 115K for miles, a rather particular younger guy (came across that way) had the pu as a secondary vehicle. T was short in his bank account for the full amount so he still owes mom, and then he still owes mom for the $600+ in repair bills for a bunch littler stuff that needed to get fixed to make the rig more road worthy--if I would have known how "secondary" the truck was used, I would have pushed harder for some coin off of the asking price. Should have had trappintime with me, then again maybe not...Anyway, the kid thinks this beast is the best thing since sliced bread, although I suspect most of his part-time job money will go into keeping it running. No better time to learn some of life's needed lessons.




P.S. Dad might have to borrow it in Dec. to lay out a coyote snare line...

PC, he got himself a much better looking ride than I did on my first one. Mine was a roughly handled 1950 Chevy auto. I used it just like a truck and it was a tough piece of work. Your son has a fine looking ride for picking up the girls.

That is a fine looking truck. :D
Details like motor, tranny and such would be nice with the price.

Sweet ride, he will enjoy i'm sure. My first ride was a 62 chevy bel- air I think. Bought it for $50.00 bucks. Lasted me 3 years before i killed it. Friday nights we all chipped in 25 cents for gas and went girl hunting. Swamp that was an oldie for sure.
