I want a truck. Not just any truck though, I want a Ford. I'd much rather be pushing a Ford than driving a Chevy or a Dodge. Screw that Jap crap too, trucks are supposed to be big, bad, and ugly. So that means it's got to be American.
I don't just want any Ford though. No sir. Screw this new fangled computerized bullshit. I don't want to push a stinkin button to engage the 4 wheel drive. Hell no! I want to pull a lever into position grinding gears in the transfer case in the process to engage 4 wheel drive. I also dont want something that requires me to get hooked up to a computer for them to run tests every time I have to get new license plates. Screw that expensive ass coil on plug ignition system too. It's a pain in the ass. Give me something with a distributor. I want a real truck!
So with that in mind. Here's what I require:
-1995 or earlier F-150 4x4.
-5 speed manual
-300 inline 6
-Something that isn't rusted apart
-I want something relatively clean with no major mechanical issues. If I got to throw on a set of wiper blades and replace some bulbs / brake pads in order for it to pass inspection, that's no big deal. If I got to replace the springs because they are sagging like hell, that's kind of a big deal.
-Tires better be in good shape.
I'd prefer to get one that's stock. I don't really want to get one that's lifted, because that's buying into someone else's problem. Unless they have documentation of what lift kit is on there, and how much it is lifted. I don't want it.
So if you guys know where to find one of these, please hook a brother up. Everyone down here drives chevy's with tree fiftys in 'em.
