Who Would Of Thought It'd Happen To A Ford Guy

Hey everyone.

I know I don't post much on here, but I do check the site out to see what's going on. Trucks are all looking great too. My wife and I still have our Escape and love it. Works great.

Anyway, I had some news to share with you all. Back in June I attended a sales event at a local dealership. They provided you with a card that had a pin number on it. You take that number along with a code number that was e-mailed to you, and enter them both online to win a new truck. I thought, why not. I have nothing to lose, and I never win those sort of contests anyway.

Well, I got a call the first part of August and had to take a skill testing question. Once I answered correctly, I was told I won the Grand Prize. My choice between a 2010 Caravan, or Ram Truck. Not a hard decision there. Needless to say, I have myself a 2010 Ram 1500 4X4 Quad Cab. I had to pay a little bit of difference in money to get the truck I wanted as the contest did have it's limit of $37,000 M.S.R.P. I could have gotten one that I didn't have to pay anything, but everyone told me I may as well pay a little extra and get what I want, so I did.

There was no option to take the cash value, as I thought of doing that and paying off some bills. But I'm still happy as I've got a new truck, something I didn't think I'd have for a long time. Nothing this huge has ever happened to me before. Oh, and yes it's got a Hemi.

Now don't be too hard on me guys. I still like Ford Trucks, and won't run them down. They've been great to me. But this Ram is nice too.

Right on man! It's cool when you win something big (eg: more than $2). I...chit...we...were lucky too , when we won a loaded '06 F-150 Supercrew and a new '25 travel trailer hooked on the back. What a feeling driving it home. Felt like I stole it and the cops were chasing us.


The Hauler - '05 F-350 4x4 CC Dually 6.0 Powerstroke
The Project - '90 Ford Bronco 4x4
The wife's - '11 Ford Escape
For every minute you are away from work...you can add two minutes to your life!

That is cool. Truck and boat. Awesome. I did enter a contest for a 2010 Explorer, who knows. LOL Could you imagine.
