I've been looking for a larger truck for a long time - this was not exactly what I had in mind but this week my little Toyota sucked a head gasket. **Desparation Strikes!!** I don't like to get new vehicles and I like even less taking out loans for thousands of dollars. So. I saw this on Craig's List.
Notice it is sitting in my drive way.
I am now the owner of a 1986 F150. This could be good. Or. See, my Toyota gasped its last breaths in the parking lot where I met the guy to see this truck. My poor Toyota. It was a bit unnerving. I bought the Ford as a smogged vehicle. But being a bit shaken, my vigilance was not as strong as I needed it to be and I did not review the smog certification. It has expired. See where my full-fledged paranoid fit is taking this?
Can't do a thing until I get this smogged . . . first thing tomorrow. Meanwhile - gotta work on experiencing my new truck as a blessing.
