Well its that time again. The suckerod company I work for has given the go-ahead for a new truck. Only this time I get to pick it out, Make, Model, and Manufacture. Now you need to know that I'm driving an 07 Chevy 4x4, with duramax short bed. 25000 miles and a great tech service hand gets it.
I have yet to decide which pickup to buy!!! I've always been a GM guy, (probably a throwback to Pops selling them all our life), but Fiberod is primarily a Ford buyer. In 1998 I bought my first Dodge and that truck is still running. It is a ugly sucker but if you tied it to my new Chevy, I would drag it backwards with that old Cummings.
So I am torn, Ford---Chevy---Dodge--Toyota???????
Well Toyota doesn't make a Diesel--so that's out.
I must admit that the new Fords are bad boys, I really like all the dang cubby holes they give you. Of course I'm a gatherer.
I'm leaning towards a Dodge , mainly because it would turn heads at work.
No one there drives one- and usually all our trucks are bought locally and we don't have a Dodge dealership anymore. Thanks Otto Meyers!!!
Chevy's new body style is slick but the best looking truck is the dually. Finally the fenders (back) aren't just added to a regular truck. I'm in a short bed now and its a rough rider but its a classic 07 not the new body style. I'll buy a long bed if I do choose a Chevy, 4 door , 4 wheel drive, and White of course. Russ (boss) says I like white because it matches my personality. All of his personal vehicles are black if that tells you anything, I never have been able to figure out what he means???
Anyway I could use some input Any opinions?? What do you drive??
Like it?? Don't???
Oh and by the way ---- Don't you miss the old new car unveilings that we used to have every Sept.???? Donuts, Hot Dogs, High Pressure Pitches.
Balloons, Man those were a BLAST!!! But new cars now can come out the year before with next years date on the title. Oh Well , nobody listens to me anyway , Ive been telling the railroad for years now that a train with no caboose is depressing to wait for at a crossing. You still don't see any do you???
As always thanks for your time,
See you in the Patch
