Even our own vehicles reach the point where they are no longer economically repairable. We often recommend to our customers that they get a newer vehicle instead of repairing their current one. Most people appreciate the advice, some people are insulted. The fact of the matter is that no matter how well taken care of your vehicle is, eventually it will reach the point where it needs more money invested into it than it would cost to replace it. Norm's been driving the same truck, a 1995 F150, for 10 years! It has almost a quarter of a million miles and has been very faithful to our family. Norm's new truck is beautiful with a recent new motor.
We looked high and low for the perfect truck for him. Most Ford trucks are diesels with as many miles as his old truck, while others are taken off-road or used as work trucks. Good thing, Heidi is good at searching the internet. She found this babied gem weeks ago, but Norm wasn't sure about the color blue. Luckily, the truck was waiting for him.
Norm said he didn't want a new truck and would keep driving his F150 until it died. This week the exhaust broke in his old truck. The exhaust fell down and was dragging the ground while he was driving. Norm had to pull over and tie up his exhaust on the way to the shop. This was the final straw for him. He told Heidi to start looking for a truck and she kept coming across this F250. The rest is history.
This truck will be getting a 4" lift, new tires and wheels, performance tuner, high performance cams, intake, ignition, and exhaust. Stay tuned!
P.S. If you're in the market for a newer vehicle, we offer pre-purchase inspections for only $95 in Denver.
