I love trucks but I prefer my cars all to be foreign (Mitsubishi, Honda, Nissan, Toyota). I have terrible luck with American cars and foreign ones are so easy to work on.

That being said, the truck is beautiful and it looks like there is someone in the front who enjoys it as well! laugh.gif

In the southern US, it's a law that the wife drives a car and the husband drives a pick-up truck.

As a guitarist I don't know one survives without a truck for haulin gear
i am a carpenter- so tools
I refinish tubs witch is basically a rolling paint rig for cars - so more tools
Don't tell my wife but you are high enough to see the skirts, and staffy you would love the drive through Hollywood
mine is a 04 F-150 can seat 6 as well
i could go on and on
but on the down side , "Friends" are always wanting help moving

side note--Praetorian -did you get a job?

I will post a picture when my wife wakes up and tells me where they are in the computer

Nice Ben cool.gif .

One of my neighbours has one as well. Only thing here is that it's a bit too big for a lot of the really narrow streets in town* but on the main road it's great smile.gif .

*Lots of our town's narrow streets date back hundreds of years when the only traffic was the odd donkey. Even today a lot of the traffic is still only the odd donkey rolleyes.gif .
