    I think Canmore should just tow it behind the Hyundai:D
    Seriously Cam I really don't see how Your ever gonna sell that truck with the price of gasoline these days. A few years ago I would have probably bought it off of You, but now I wouldn't even consider something like that with a big block. No offense.

    +they make gas in canada!!!!

    when you factor the cost of a custom new truck at 40k-50k..in my case Im looking at one that will be closer to 60 when Im done... insurance.. wear and tear and depreciation... even big blocks arent that bad... over the life of a vehicle the fuel cost isnt the biggie.. it feels like it is because we pay it instanlty but even a vehicle at double the mileage.. say a new dodge... the payback is a long time...if ever... now if its NEW you want then thats another story

    Were going to run out of gas probably in some of your lifetimes... maybe not mine but certainly in some of the younger members here... enjoy it while you can.. it was 13 cents when I was a kid.. and they gave full service ..green stamps... and all kinds of freebies,, and 4 guys checked your oil, engine tires windows and everything else for free... those days are CERTAINLY gone!!!



    my truck is a classic.. and its condition is where the value is...

    There's no need to convince me of how awesome the truck is, you big goof.....:D

    In regards to the gas mileage, I'm not overly concerned. If I did buy the truck, it wouldn't see many miles a year. In fact, I'll probably spend more in a year fueling up the damn boat.

    Anyhow, trucks like this for that kind of price only come around once in a lifetime. I've been looking around- not only are these 1 ton duallies virtually non-existant up here, a newer comparable truck is going for AT LEAST $20K with about 60K to 70K miles on them. Last but not least, knowing the character and integrity of this particular seller makes the deal; even that sweeter.

    Anyhow, Cam, I'll be getting ahold of you on Sunday or Monday.
