Well, figured I'd sign up here.... I have too many vehicles already (so the wife says.. is there really any such thing?) but I just got another. Now that my dad is retired, he gave me his old pickup. Its a 1989 2wd half ton short bed with the extended cab. It was originally Midnight Blue, but he had it repainted (cheap job) a few years ago after the infamous 80s paint peal. Eventually I want to "restore" this truck, and it will get some body work and a factory repaint. My dad bought this truck brand new in March of 1989. I was in the 1st grade. He taught me how to drive in it, as well as my sister. The truck has 450,000 miles. The original engine has been re-ringed and got new bearings about 150k miles ago and is currently running strong. He also just had the original tranny rebuilt about 10 miles ago. (good for me). Its not perfect, but Ill be fixing it up, while I drive it. Its all stock, except for front corner lights. Its going to replace my F350 as my daily driver (gas is cheaper than diesel, and with current prices, if the F350 wasnt paid for, Id think about trading it in).. and with my job I need a pickup, but can get away with a smaller and lighter truck, so the 89 it is. I hope to hit a million miles on it one day, and have it looking as good as new when it happens. Anyway, here is a pic of it... Its the only one I have of it, from this last summer. But it looks exactally the same (just wet, with all the rain). I look forward to hanging out around here, and getting some info. I know a lot about the truck, but Im sure I will have a few questions, and need some help on things. If anyone is local, feel free to hit me up also.
