I guess you can consider this a needed tool for a cabinet builder. My step daughters van died and she needed a way to get to work. I gave her my 1995 Dodge Dakota and that left my wife and I with just the car. I bought this 1990 Ford, F-150, XLT Lariat, V8 5.0, 2 WD, Automatic, AC, Power everything with 31,500 miles on it. An old man bouhgt it new in 1990 and died in 1991. The family kept it in the garage for 21 years and just used it to run errands with. They kept it serviced and maintained all those years. I gave $4600 for it at auction, but felt the condition it was in, made it worth that much to me. Used pickup trucks go high in this country.

Wow… looks brand new! I’ve never seen a truck so clean on the inside. That little old lady who drove it to church on Sundays sure kept it clean!!! That is quite a score.

Nice score on the truck, Tom. You definitely needed this since it would be hard to haul a sheet of plywood in the car. :)

Man, that is a great deal. I am currently looking for a truck and that is exactly the kind of deal that I need to find. I guess I will just have to keep looking.
