I'm going to have to make the buy of a lifetime.

I have to find the best possible deal on a plow truck, and the budget will be tight. I don't know exactly what I'm going to have to work with yet, but regardless of cost I need to "buy well".

So, if something crosses your path, please let me know.

And wish me luck.

Here are two examples of what I'll be looking for generally. Unfortunately both will be gone by the time I'm ready, and are likely budget busters.

Have you thought about putting the Mothertruck back together and hooking up a plow for it? It could be your cheapest option.

Mothertruck is waaayy too long to plow with, and a cheapy plow truck would cost less than finishing it.

I have considered going over the mechanics of the Blazer and hanging a blade on that. But there has been a ton of interest in it, so it will probably sell shortly.

Why not just mount a plow on your Blazer then, rather than buying what is basically a GMC version of what you own now? Seems silly to me. Unless the GMC has a better engine and is better suited to it.

The GMC had less than half the miles, was five years newer, already had the plow, looks fantastic, and has barn doors.

Other than that, not much. :smilewide:

What about an older F150 or Ram?

I saw a decent deal on a ford a few days ago...

If the right one came along, maybe.

If I go the pickup route, I'd rather get my hands on a 3/4 ton so I can still use my trailer.

"This could change the whole Dynamic 88." Harumph... didn't know you had a '67 Oldsmobile. HOW MANY CARS YOU GOT?

Well, I have had Oldsmobiles...

None lately though, and never a "Dynamic".

The vehicle count as of today is still 7, but tomorrow that should be changing.

I'm sort of letting fate decide, whatever is left after selling a few will be where I start over.

Is this a telling fact?

At the Wawa earlier today, a guy stopped in his tracks and stared at the wagon as I was on my way out of the store. He stopped me and asked if it was mine and we had a long talk in the vestibule as people passed us. During the conversation, he gushed about the car and said how much he'd like to have one...

I didn't mention that it was for sale.

Either he was very handsome and you were distracted, or you secretly want to keep that wagon.

Yes and then you could scout around for fenders, rocker panels and lower quarters...:)
