Found a good home
« on: August 19, 2021, 10:07:01 AM »
877 miles and just shy of 11 years of ownership I watched my beloved 85 extended cab on its way with the new owner.  Bittersweet but now I can work guilt free on my other two squares.

I am sure it is bitter sweet.  Hopefully the new owner will appreciate it as you have..  it was a rare bird.

He messaged me today thanking me again.  He was driving it all around about an hour showing everyone.  He has quite a few more toys including another square body extended cab.  I think he will appreciate it a lot.

not really, only took 7 years of off and on trying to sell it.  The few folks interested, all but 2, objected to the color, the rest was that it was a 2 wheel drive.  I felt he got a deal and I was satisfied...
