I went and did it

So the story goes like this.
I'm up at my little rancho in Norcal this past week and my brother comes over and says, "Hey, you think if we go pester Mr. Foley again that he'll sell you that F-100".
I replied, "let's go see".
So we loaded up the girls and drove up the canyon.
My brother found the truck on a day trip and made the initial contact with the owner Mr. Foley.
Now, Mr. Foley is a wonderful little man that owns a little auto repair garage in the town of Quincy. He's a former marine and the kind of guy you could talk to all day long.
He has a little '74 F-100 4x4 that is exactly like the one I had as a young buck.
It was the one I never should have sold. I used to have a blast in that truck.
Used to fly it off the dunes at Pismo and then go climb it to Monache Meadows and get stuck in the snow, good stuff.
Upon arriving in Quincy we went to the garage and there it was, a beautiful little truck with a snow plow. It has seen some use in its life in the mountains. Lots of wood haulin and plowing the white stuff.
Mrs. Foley was sweeping the drive and greeted us quizzically as it was a holiday and they were not open for business. I asked for her husband and she vanished to fetch him. Mr. Foley appeared with a smile and a handshake and we began talkin and hagglin.
We were a bit apart at first as he knew how rare they are, and the fact that I've been after it for a while. But we eventually came to a number that satisfied us both.
A handshake and the deal was done.
She's a beauty. A 360, four speed job.
Needs a little TLC, but she'll get it.
If you all are ever up in Northern Ca. on highway 70 you will be in for a wonderful drive. It is a hidden canyon that most people don't know about.
Great fishing and waterfalls all over the place.
Portola is at the east end and Lake Oroville is at the west end.
My place is in a little area called Yankee Hill above the lake.
Here she is:

The picture with the snow is from earlier this year on an earlier trip trying to buy the truck.
However it did snow this past weekend up there but at higher elevations

Nice find. I had a lot of experience with a Meyer plow in IL. I learned the golden rule was to change the oil every spring and blow out the mesh filters. Keep extra selenoids on hand. Maybe I just had a cantankerous one! Prolly 'cause it was on a Jimmy.

My brother went and brought her back to home soil.
Initial report;
a tank full of bad gas
frozen drum brakes
Guess it's like the plumber that never works on his own house.
