    First of all,

    I'd like to thank my Friends for the birthday wishes!

    It was an uneventful, memorable day.

    As an adult, my Birthday has always been to me about my Mom, who gave me Life.....

    Again this year I had not cake and ice cream.

    I made brownies, a milkshake with my Mom's old Oester milkshake maker, and many tears of memories....



    (Helpful image of similar.....)

    Ahem!

    A 1999 Lincoln WAM is an error.

    1998 1999 2000 Wide AM's

    Always my Best Wishes, Friends,

    Scott

    Oh!

    My bad!

    You asked about the truck, didn't you?

    Well, in year model, I'm going backward 2 years.

    And It's not a Chevy/GM. It's a Ford.
    4 cylinder, 2.5 standard 4 on the floor w/overdrive. A Ranger longer cab.

    It's clean, been WELL maintained and is available for about a grand or twelve hundred.
    My locksmith Friend and I do a lot of work for this guy who runs a NAPA car repair shop and it was his Father in Law's truck.
    Now the Father in Law wants a newer truck.

    I haven't heard it run or look it over too closely yet....

    I may have just slid safely into home under the catcher's tag!

    Be Well, Friend!

    Best,

    Scott

    (Helpful image of similar truck. Color is about the same. Perhaps more burgandy? Comes with a bed toolbox. If this "romance" gets serious, I'll post actual photos....)

    Dram,

    Yep. Rear wheel not front or 4 wheel.

    A basic, "Start when I say so, get me there and back safely and I'm used to '2-60' air conditioning!"

    Dang!

    "I'm missing her already...and she's not even mine."

    Hmmmm....

    Sounds like a song lyric to me. How 'bout you?

    You know, there's something to be said for a basic truck! A lot less to go wrong!

    Just be sure there is zero blue smoke as those motors and the closely related 2.3 fords were known for rings not staying seated. Back in the day it was a Ford warrantee procedure to dump (I believe Ajax or borax) down the intake while it was wide open throttle in a attempt to reseat the rings and stop oil consumption. Afterwards they would change the plugs and oil and hope for the best! Fords idea was what do they have to loose? If it didn't work ford was replacing engine either way...
    As long as she don't smoke you should be all set.

    Now,

    When I say that it's, "clean," I'm talking of aesthetics.

    The engine was replaced in 2011 I think....

    To me, this is a possible "not clean."

    How much of a purist are you?

    How many miles on this replaced engine? Who did the work?

    Like I said, this Fellow runs a National Car Repair Franchise.

    "As Allen GrayCloud would say,"

    "'Nuff Said."

    Best,

    Scott

    I'll certainly get all information possible before she is mine....

    But, I like the way this is looking....

    Best,

    Scott

    Lol! Yeah not a fun thing to fix. I made sure TGF was aware of this issue before he got his truck. Seems they all have issues regardless of manufacturer! Although I must say my wife's 2016 Subaru Forrester is one awesome car! Unreal quality!

    Worst Fords to buy are the 6.0 and 6.4 diesels. Many, many guys have been burned by these trucks, some guys have just had to let the bank repo a broken truck. When engine damage occurs it can be in excess of $15000!!!! That totals a used truck!!
    Never ever buy one of these!!! Ask me how I know!!! Lol

    I'm betting she's a deal...especially at that price!! To me a replaced engine if done properly vastly enhances the value. Sounds like you've found a good one!

    It's really my fault...I haven't taken care of it properly since I've owned it.

    Sure, I've replaced brakes a few times, a clutch job once or three times, but,
    Change oil? Nah. Not this month. Or next.....maybe after that....

    Coolant? Nah.
    Plugs? Once or twice, maybe 3 times....
    Hell, I've NEVER washed it!

    8 years is probably the most I could have hoped for on a '99 S-10....under those conditions....

    Yeah, and I delivered pizzas in this truck for a coupla years when I started back to College 5-6 years ago!


    Guess I'll have to get my hands dirty a bit more often than I did.....

    Best,

    Scott

    The process of "selling off" has begun.....

    1999 Wam
    Speaking of delivering pizzas when I started back to College,
    My Manager at one of the two stores that I scheduled College around attended my Graduation and she and her husband took photos and I just got them.
    3-4 are worthy of further posting.

    How about one for now?
