    Ever go to look at/buy/pick up a truck and it just doesn't work out?

    I did just that this last weekend, drove from VT to upper Maine.
    We're talkin' moose country/Canada kinda Maine as in an 8hr drive way north.

    Anyway, made the drive and the truck I went up the for (72 4x4 8ft fleet)
    turned out to be nothing I wanted to buy. :doah:

    BUT on the way we had seen another on the side of the road and said "lets check that out on the way back through just for kicks", so @ 9pm we stopped where the truck was.
    Turned out to be a 72 flat bed dually. Nice clean truck, so I bought it!
    Drove it all the way back from Maine, low gears and all. :laugh:

    That IS a beauty!! :thumb:


    How much weight can that carry? Do you think it would hold my '72K5 up on that flatbed?

    Do you want to trade for something a little LARGER??? :wink1:

    What are your plans for the truck? Is the bed long enough to haul a 1st Gen Blazer?

    Yes it is, just haven't tried it yet.
    The deck is 12ft long, a 1st gen should fit nicely. :thinking:
