New Truck


Brad has been wanting an older style Ford F150 truck ever since we traded his last truck off for the durango! Yeah it killed him to trade his last truck considering it was only a year or two old! Well today he finally found one. It's crazy we were just talking at my dad's a couple weekends ago that it is so nice to have the Durango and my Taurus paid off. The many months we have had of not having a car payment has been SOOOO nice! We told ourselves we were going to drive the Durango and the Taurus at least until the end of next year! He is always looking for trucks but says he is going to wait to buy one. Well that changed today. Brad is driving home a truck he bought in Omaha! It's a 2001 Ford F150 with 36, 000 miles. I have not seen the truck yet besides pictures but he said it's nice for a 2001 and there are some cosmetic flaws but I guess you have to expect that for being a 2001. He couldn't pass up the deal with it only having 36,000 miles and got them to come down on the price! It's hard to find a 2001 with that low of mileage. We are keeping the durango for me because that is in pretty good shape and has around 75, 000 miles on it. It actually has been a very good vehicle for us, I don't think we have ever had anything go wrong with it!(knock on wood) It was time for my car to go because it had 130, 000 so we ended up selling that to one of Brad's buddies! The picture I posted is a internet picture from the dealers website.

Must be rough to have money. I still have 2 years payments on 89 ranger, then big balloon payment at the end. Can I borrow some money.
