That's right! I have a truck! And I love it. Don't even think about asking to buy it.

My dad retired earlier this year (2016) and decided to downsize his life a little. He used this truck to haul his boat. He gave the boat to my older brother and the truck to me. I'm very happy I got the truck and not the boat. For me, a boat is a hole in the water you throw money into.

Anyway, this video is your first look at my 1990 C1500 Sport. As you'll see in the video it has an automatic transmission in it. It originally came with a 4 speed manual. To be honest, I haven't decided what direction I want to go yet. The truck runs great and I'm happy just driving it for now. We'll sort that part out later after I finish the #FairmontProject. If you're curious how that is going, here's a link to that playlist.

So for now, I'm just going to enjoy driving my new truck.

Thanks dad!
