Called the shop where my pickup (Teddy) was and they had him fixed up. So after working with the draft mares I ran to Philip, paid my banker and then paid the bill for the clutch repair and two new batteries.
Found out they have a 2011 just like Teddy, only they have bigger motors now and this has a 6 speed and they only wanted $41, 000 for it. what a deal! And they’d even give me $10,000 for Teddy!
Nawww, I’ll stick with what I got. All the power I ever need and I know who’s been driving him. ‘Sides, if I wanted to sell Teddy, I am sure I could get $14,000 or $15,000 for him.
I did fin it interesting that a neighbor priced a 2011 Ford one ton, dually 4 door, pretty much what he has now, only older, and they had it priced at $64,000. Guess I will stick with my Dodge, even if he is a “rough rider”. 🙂
At these prices we will all be driving old over the road trucks to pull our trailers in a few years. Hell, you can buy a good one of them for $10,000 or less. And they will damn sure pull a stock trailer. Maybe not in the mud as well, but for $50,000 we can put up with a little inconvenience.
Sure was another nice day.
