    I dreamed last night that I bought a 1968 Ford pickup for 3000 dollars. I started to freak out because I had not seen, driven, or had any contact of any kind with this truck and I couldn't figure out why I would have bought a 45 year old truck sight unseen.

    Then I thought lol this is just a tequila dream. You didn't really do this. So I went through my pockets, thinking I was awake now but still dreaming, and there was a bill of sale for a 'beat up 1968 Ford pickup truck'. 3000 dollars

    I was all bummed out, like oh shit you really DID buy a truck.

    And then I woke up.

    :bigthink $3000 is about what they sold for new (including extras, taxes & title).

    super nice pickup but they really need to ditch the Bronco bumper with it's unsightly gap in favor of a roll pan.

    I'm not a big fan of roll pans on trucks.......takes away the utility appearance and ruins it (IMO).
