Re: Miss this truck.

Nice truck! You know I like the F O R D across the front of the hood!

Beautiful. I just love the 80/81 details. Was the driver side mirror changed between the two pics? The interior shot looks like it shows a 82+ mirror...

Re: Miss this truck.

I was sure you were going to miss that truck.  I seriously considered buying it to "keep it in the family".

But, you can create another one.

The interior pic is older than the side shot, so you are correct. I swapped the aero mirrors out for the correct 80-82 style.

To be honest, if the new owner asked me to buy it back, I wouldn't. This new truck will be ten times what this truck was. But, I would love to have some of the parts again, like that interior and most of the body. I'd also love to take back the ten years and thousands of dollars I poured into the truck with priorities that were out of line, but that's a lesson learned the hard way that I refuse to let myself make again.
