another old diesel
well I'm purchasing another old Ford diesel.
looks rough but solid enough to make it a replacement for Barney, will be picking it up next sunday. its a 2wd diesel crewcab 5spd. lots of km on it but lots of little stuff done to it that would be needed for a safety. multi coloured patch job so it will need some black paint on box and fenders so it won't look so bad. has about 140,000 less km on it than present driver..............
actually looking forward to driving a pickup again, roadnoise in a fullsize diesel van can be a real "rumble " sometimes.
Barney got me 21 mpg last tank on my commute to work, hopefully this powerstroke 5spd will do a little better? 25mpg would be cool!
