New truck



Got an 81 Courier with the 2.3l Ford engine and a five speed manual for the grand sum of $400 today- Now no more $70 fill ups that only last a few days, I'll get probably two weeks out of that same amount in this thing.
I'll put pics up tomorrow.

You're supposed to keep the gas hog, and borrow the wife's vehicle for general running around....AT least that is my answer to high gas prices....LOL

The wife's rig is a lifted 75 Wagoneer-
I had two choices before, a highway runner that was a gas hog in town, but that would flat out haul ***, and a general gas hog that protested any speed over about 45.

It's ugly, but runs great. I think I'll throw a coat of paint on it some time this summer-
