My name is Dan, and last year after a windstorm crushed my two previous cars, I inherited this 1986 F250HD XLT Lariat (now known as 'Burt') from my Father. Since I am also 34 years old, it seems a bit like destiny. The truck had one prior owner to my Dad, who drove it twice a year commuting from Northern Idaho to winter in Arizona with his fifth wheel, so it has only 60k original miles, and all the associated service records. It was garaged in Idaho, but exposed in Arizona, so while the truck is rust free, there is some paint wear on both the hood and roof. All the bells and whistles work, except, which as I've come to read is a common issue, the duel fuel tanks (only the front works). Luckily the mechanic where I live is a friend, and has a similar rig (84 F250) that he already fixed, so I'm in the process of doing that now.
I've never been into cars before getting this, too many other hobbies, but I've really enjoyed diving into this thing and cleaning it up since I got it, and this website has been a great help. Anyways, here are a few photos, and thanks everyone for unknowingly contributing to my newfound passion so far.
Home is actually Vashon Island, Washington. A little island community in Puget Sound, close to Seattle. Moved to Seattle 15 years ago, and been on Vashon going on 6 now. Allows me to work in the city (I'm an architect), but go home to the country (Vashon is very rural) everyday. Also saves me gas as I don't have to drive this hog to work, I take a boat
