    So I buy the F 350 and put the Bronco up for sale. I have had the truck for 9 years and it owes me nothing, very reliable and plowed with no problems. Today a guy gives me what I was asking for it and leaves a deposit. So reality strikes and I realize I will miss that truck very much and start to second guess selling it.
    Needless to say I am not changing my mind but damn I will miss that old Ford. Anyone else have this happen?

    I had a Bronco II that I owned for 13 years. The last 4 it was as a plow truck with a 6' standard Meyer on it. Burgundy color, black roof and bottom, tiger stripe sides and rear, black bumpers and trim. Both my boys grew up riding in that truck and plowing snow. The last season I plowed with it the body mounts rusted out. I retired it that summer. The flat bed came for it, to take it away. The boys and I had tears in our eyes when it was leaving. My Wife was like "Really?" Yeah, Really, we loved that truck! They still talk about it.

    I'm with ya, man. My old Dodge 1/2 ton blew an engine in '05 or '06. My first real truck. The truck I started plowing with, in fact. It sat in my driveway for 5 years. I hardly touched it. Got a chance to sell it for $600, and took it. I remember cleaning it out, thinking how much I'd miss it. Never would have been practical to fix the thing, had almost 250K miles and more broke on than was right. But boy, that was tough.
