Sam's First Pickup.
« on: April 26, 2013, 09:53:09 PM »
Although Sam doesn't turn 16 until July a heck of a little truck came along I just couldn't pass up. It a 2001 F-150, with a V6 Auto in it. Truck only has 92,000km on it and is emaculant. It was owned by a retired Edmonton transit worker, guy rarley drove it. I honestly don't think this truck saw a gravel road. Didn't exactly get it for the cheapest but do to the shape its in I think it was worth it in the long run.

I think all guys can relate to this and what it was like with your first pickup.

Sam's little truck.

At least Sam will get some value in buying the truck.  Clean looking little pickup.  Now for the insurance for a young guy.  It is too bad the insurance companies gotta gouge us, especially young males.

Nice truck, I got a 98 XLT looks just like it except for the color and tricab. I don't think Sam will be disappointed they're tough little trucks. Walleyes, tell him to back off the spark plugs every 50,000 k's. They have a reputation for welding themselves into the manifold and breaking off trying to remove them.

Sam's a very fortunate young man! Nice looking little truck :) I'm sure there's a 'Dad of the Year' award in there for you somewhere!
