And this happened too.....


My mom has an older F-250 Diesel with only 133k (diesels go 500+ for reals). I have lusted after it for years. It's been sitting unused, other than running it to keep is healthy, for years. She sold the horse trailer years ago and has an SUV for the boats and cargo trailers. I can't believe it BUT MY MOM AND STEP DAD GAVE IT TO ME!!!

The transmission only has three gears so it will tow the shit out of things but it's not meant cruise in the freeway at 65. The plus side is that the c6 transmission is very dependable so if I take good care of it I am set. For the longer freeway drives I will be getting rides with friends who have newer trucks. But for hauling to lessons, trail rides, and local shows this truck will be perfect. 

I've been learning all about cavitation, pyrometers, and glow plugs. Can't wait to have an adventure!!!

  3. We had a similar vintage truck and that thing was awesome! Towed 2 horses and a good part of our household things across the country without a hitch. I'd love to get my hands on another! Congratulations!

    1. These old diesels go forever. We just go whatever speed she feels like.
