Dang, my favorite color combination.  The first guy that comes by and knows what he is looking at will buy that truck!!

Sold the truck tonight... Got what I was asking for it.. 

Very strange. The young fellow who is buying the truck is the 

son of an RCMP helicopter pilot that my wife knew well.

He was  killed in 2012 when his chopper crashed.

I had an idea who the kid might be,it was a funny feeling when I told 

him his name sounded familiar and he said “you might have known my dad”.

Weird how things happen sometimes.

This kid was one of the most respectful young men my wife and I have dealt with in a while.

A breath of fresh air..

He has a 2009 Duramax he is selling tomorrow . He said his truck has a fair bit of rust on it . 

He was quite happy with the condition my truck is in . 

I told him thats from the habit of washing any wet mud off the underbody after off roading! 

Will be glad when it’s gone from in front of my house.👍🏼👍🏼

My wife will be even happier...🤓

That was a great deal.  I hope you're right about the new owner. Then this will be a pay it forward type of sale.   Congrat's.

This sounds like a "it was meant to be" thing!

The 97 just drove away.. Kind of sad to see the old girl leave.

We have had tons of adventures and many miles of family travels in that truck.

My daughter was only 4 when we got it,she’s 25 now! 

At least the young fellow that bought it really knows what he bought and appreciates it.

I hope it serves him as well as it served me on a wide bunch of different adventures.
