    WHY. It looks like a solid truck, you'll surely be able to sell it and recoup the money you spent on it! It baffles me that people are so anxious to scrap these trucks when it's obvious that there are no more being made and they will eventually be nonexistant. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
