    I had to part with my old plow truck today. She was rotting away and I had no time to fix it. So after owing it for 10 years. It was time to part ways with the old work horse.

    After getting it out and pushed onto the trailer of the new owner. I realized how bad it really was. I'm glad it went to someone who will breathe new life into it. But still sad to see it go.

    Just wanted to vent a bit.

    my 1982 F150 with a straight 6 and a 4 speed. I bought it when I was 17 and then put a plow on it when I turned 18. Had the truck for about 10 years.

    It was a great truck, hope the new owner appreciates it.

    Thanks for the pics. Had one similar to that except maroon with a meyer plow. Those were the days when trucks were simple and cheap to repair.
