Roger, Nathan, and now me

Well I've joined the group! I sold the trailer, the power stroke, and the RV. This is my new daily driver and I can fix it all myself. Got tired of those $1000 repair bills every time you can't fix it yourself.
So I'm down to the delivery and my bronco. And I love it.

I think it's called the " Now I've gone and done it" group.

And here, all this time, I thought you founded that group!



And thanks - now I got that Britney Spears song stuck in my head.

I guess I kinda belong to this group too. Last year I got rid of my powerboat. This year I got rid of my 5th wheel RV and the (too big for me) truck to pull it. I've graduated down to a clean little 10 year old Ranger for my daily driver, and of course, the Ranchero. And..... I feel good about all of it.

Well... that looks like lotsa fun. Be sure to share the fun with us.


I guess you've officially filled that empty spot in your signature.

Roger, Nathan, and now me

Great truck. I had a 1968 International truck that was such a fun truck to drive. It was not fast but it would move anything. On the way to work one night on third shift at Boeing a drunk young lady sideswiped me at the driver side rear bumper. It moved the truck over and when I got out I just new the whole left side was destroyed.
Mine had a great bid diamond steel bumper on the back similar to what I see on yours. She was driving a triumph convertible and it totaled her car. Tore the whole drivers side off her car, destroyed the front and rear, tore off the rear wheel. Her and the other girl in the car were to drunk to get hurt.
When the cops showed up he came over to document the damage on my truck. He listed "white paint on drivers side of rear bumper". That was it, not dents, nothing.
Wish I had that truck again. Good luck and keep us up to speed on the work. Larry
