79 Crewcab 4x4 is starting off with a positive reputation.
Soooooooo, had an interesting night last night, travel 2 hours to pick up a new to me box. 95ish flareside. 2 weeks ago, buddy sends me a random pic he found on instagram, it's a girl standing in front of my truck.... I track her down, says she ended up selling it to some Bryan guy..... remember 2 weeks ago.

Yesterday, travel to box, BS with the guy for a bit, mentions he had a 97 that he was going to put the flareside on, asks me what I was doing with it. I says it's not the box I'm looking for, I'm really after a 79 shortbox. He gets a weird look in his eye, starts reminiscing and mentions he had a 79 Crewcab years ago that he had to find a new box for......

Says it was green.....

I whip out my phone and get a pic of mine and hand him the phone.

He looks at me and says that's his old truck, I said that's where this new flareside box is going.

Both owned in like 1996

What are the odds of randomly running into 2 previous owners in two weeks? No common friends, nobody knows anybody, nothing.
