Nice article....a few of the things the writer mentioned brought back some great memories (and reminded me of some frustrations), with my former trucks. It's fun to reminisce about a certain things that happened in my life and the vehicle that was with me. Thanks for sharing!

A good truck is like a good dawg. They just make life better. newer trucks have a lot on the way of creature comforts, but that isn't all bad. I have sort of brought my 'ol '95 into the present with some add on goodies like the bluetooth receiver, navigation and so on but I absolutely LOVE to push the clutch and stir the gears by hand. it is like having the best of both worlds.
Anyone ever see the movie "The Cowboy Way"? It's a flick about 2 rodeo cowboys from New Mexico trekking cross country to New York City in an 'ol Chevy ranch truck to rescue their friend and his daughter. It makes the Southwestern lifestyle look so appealing! If you haven't seen it, find it and watch!"It went together didn't it? Well then there has to be a way to take it apart!" - Me.

And other vehicles and toys.

Glad the group got a kick out of the piece. I look forward to spending some time in other trucks later this month. If I didn't have a city job I'd have me a nice rig. Sadly my parking garage clearance is just over 6'4''!
Enjoy the mud fellas (And ladies if you're here too!) -

not a problem, seemed relevant, and well written.
hey, stick around, just because you don't have a truck doesn't mean you cant hang out....

Well I nearly have about 1500 country songs within my iTunes library but have strayed away here and there. I came across this song and find it perfect to blast and cruise around.
