Hey, that's a nice truck. Wish I could find a decent beater like that right now.
I'm pondering a new top on my car, which also will require some welding soon... It's 105,000 miles, which is a baby for them, but I'm just not sure if I want to put TOO much into it or just get something newer. I keep eyeing Sebring Convertibles and the last body style Mustangs (though i love the new ones, but I'm unwilling to pay what they're asking even used).
I was so close to getting a mini-van given to me... Tons of miles, but I was going to gut the rear of it and make it basically a hauling vehicle like your truck, Name. Free car, can't beat it with a stick... Well, actually you can.
