Gone

Well...didn't see it happening this fast, but I just sold the Mazda today for $3000 with 429 000km (just over 260k miles) on it.

No idea what I'm buying yet, but it'll be small and cheap and the rest of the money is going towards paying bills.

As of Monday the truck is gone.

If he does, it's up to you to take a drive to Alberta and smack him.

No more Rangers for me, I'm done with 'em. Might buy an S10 who knows. I'm looking for another B2200 preferably, or a sporty car, but my budget is $1500-1800 and the rest of th emoney goes to my credit card debt.

I am going to be honest with you. You should have sent that rubberize **** to me so I could use it on my truck instead of your old one.

But it is sad to see it go.

Not only that, I've really wanted to get rid of the truck for a while. I'm sick of the crap gas milage, I don't even need a 4x4 around here and it has a sh*t ton of miles on it. Sooner or later the timing chain will have to be done, and it's at the point now where it has so many miles on it that it may as well just be run into the ground, so I decided to sell it while it still had some value left from me repairing it. I just about broke even selling it for $3000.

I also hate the manual transmissions in them. I have many reasons for getting rid of the truck.

Plus now I can get myself back into a B2200 and back into the minitruck scene which I so dearly miss.

You know we don't salt the roads here in the mountains/prairies . . . I regret not having a 4x4 a lot in the winter. Sad to see you (or at least your truck) go.

Mikey, you're totally ghey. Sorry, but moving from Ontario which is flat as a pancake to Alberta where we have mountains, trails, and wicked sites galore, you want to get a lowrider?

Alberta is 4x4 heaven my friend. I say keep the truck and run it into the ground. Literally.

Never really talked to you, and just read a post where you said your girl just straight up left you. Felt bad, read your one thread and I must say well done. I can't say I would be that strong of a person to stay and make the best of a ****ty situation.

But this, this just seems strange, you seemed all excited to have painted the truck, then bam its gone haha. I say good luck in getting what you really want. I wanted an '89 SHO, parents said no, so I got one they'd let me... a '94 auto... Yup, the tranny blew so I saved my pennies and bought my Ranger... But now, a year later after having my truck I really want to get that '89 SHO i passed up 3 years ago... I may even be getting it from Alberta haha.

Any ways, long story short. Great job sticking in there, and getting rid of your debt is probably the most important thing. Good job in having your priorities straightened out.

Sean

Well good... not that I didn't think it was justified (and not that it matters since it's your decision) just definately didn't see it coming....
