Title: Weazemobile Now with pic!
Post by: weazletoe on June 14, 2011, 04:24:52 am
 Sold my Sammi tonight. Pretty cool, it was the first dude that even asked about it, and he only talked me down 100$.
 
 Pretty sure I found my next ride. I went and looked at the truck I posted a pic of a couple weeks ago, and I gave it a solid "meh".... Stopped to look at a buddies truck on the way home, and this is the one! It's a 1991 Silverado, 4x4, 1 ton, 454. Body is in great shape. No cancer, just a couple spots on the hood where the clear coat is lifting. THe drivers seat has a pretty big tear in it, but nothing a seat cover won't fix. It's got a receiver hitch, a ball for a goose neck, in the bed, and it's wired for lights and trailer brakes with the brake controller installed. This sucker is one bad boy! Color is not exactly my thing, but, what ya gonna do? Oh, it also has a ladder rack that I should be able to sell for a few hundred.
  So, any body got anything that needs pullin'?  ;D

Sweet, if the motor goes bad you will get help here. Hope it wound up a one for one trade as far as cash goes!

I need my ass dragged out of a funk hope this works! LOL

You said the color wasn't your thing? Is this the Silverado?

Picked it up Sunday. This is one bad boy. It's in really good shape, considering the age. It purs like a walrus. Fixed the a/c today.  :D
 I driven larger trucks, heck, I've driven semi. But, it;s pretty friggen cool to own a truck that is basically the biggest thing on the road, short of a dump truck. I dare anyone of you to take me head on!!

Nice score Weaz. What are the specs? I assume it has an eight banger?

Looks like it's in pretty good shape for it's age ...bodywise anyway.

It's not a diesel? I predict one year of ownership for this vehicle after the weaze gasoline fund-drive falls flat. ;)

Post by: weazletoe on June 22, 2011, 06:36:54 pm
I'm bot worried about the gas. It will mainly be used for towing, not a daily driver. When we pulled with the Trailblazer, we got about 112mpg. Buddy I bought this from said he got about 10 in it. So, not a big difference. If I needed a daily driver, I would not have even considered it.

Sounds like a pretty significant difference to me  ;D

Yeah with a 2500 Dmax you could turn that thing upside down and tow it around town on a shopping trip for the wife and never really look back!

I wouldn't pee on your Chevy. I much prefer the older trucks and I love big blocks. It's just so much fun to come up beside a Prius and shake their windows with some good loud exhaust pipes.

Forgot to ask, Weaze...  Do your friends come over when you're not home, borrow your truck and return it dirty and empty?
