    well i bought a new truck yesterday thought id share it with the community i know im a ford man and i was looking for an OBS f-350 but couldent find one so i ended up with this as some of you im renting out my truck to a close friend for salt operations so in the mean time i needed to pick something up for the winter and heres what i came up with a 1989 chevy 1500 4x4 with 141,000 miles on the truck and only 40,000 miles on the crate 305 bought new in 2000 ( i got the paperwork on it) only thing wrong with it mechanically is one rusted out rocker panel on passenger side and needs one ball joint (will replace all 4) but for the price i payed for it i cant complain at all so with out further adieu

    You went looking for a one ton Ford and ended up with a half ton Chevy? BTW, what's rust? :)

    Looks good! So are you renting out your truck plus you? Or are you working for Mystic?

    since im not plowing i dont need the one ton but ive always wanted one and thought this would be my shot to get one but couldent find one that fit my specs in the time allowed considering i was going to be with out a truck after december 1st

    nope just renting out the truck...im working for collin from terra lawns aka merrimack mill again this year...mystic is a great company to work for and great equipment but me and collin already have snow history together and i know the route already so it just made more sense to stay with him
