Picked up a 500 dollar beater.
Thursday, November 21, 2013 7:34 AM
well between hunting seasons and yard work the time had come to finally make the decision to get a beater car. lucky i had one fall into my lap over the last weekend. I would like to present Gertrude my 500 dollar toy. small plans for it. a 3" lift, and some 31/ 1050 r 15's as well as just a little stock repairs. it needs a new ignition tumbler, some new plugs and wires. i need to fix a leak near the filler neck and probably throw a new fuel filter on it as well as some various other maintenance items. also plan to remove the splash decals and get a good camo stripe.

4.0l 4wd Automatic. and either a highly maintained 181k on the engine due to the condition of the engine bay or 81K, since it only has a 5 spot od.

You need to start chewing Redman and listening to Garth Brooks. How's your little one doing?

I gave up on the SNUS's and for some reason country sounds good in this little truck. i can't put my finger on why though. my little one is awesome, loving life and living the little dream. she is hilarious with all of her little quirks. and because of her i was able to convince the wife that tinting the focus windows was a good idea, so the car is going into the shop to get 30% on the back and 50% on the fronts. with a black car and black interior that should be plenty dark.
