from the ford dealership
I'm not a Ford guy. However, this nice gem was sitting in the Nick Nichols Ford dealership (Inverness Florida) parking lot..
A very well restored 1972 Chevrolet Custom/C20 pickup, with updated air conditioning and newer A/C compressor (which believe me is a good upgrade). Price was listed at 17k (or 19k, can't remember exactly). Sound like a lot? Not really when you consider it's got 33,000 original miles on it.
Here's an interior shot:
The truck is absolutely gorgeous all the way 'round.
Simply put, you do not see trucks (or cars) like this in New England because they rust off their frames just by sitting outside. Here in the south, there are classic rides a-plenty.
While I was there I yakked with one of the sales guys who tried to put me in a new convertible Mustang:
The one I looked at was silver, the one above is in the showroom. If I bought one it would have been the silver one.
Here's the interior:
It's a nice car all around. When you sit in it, everything is in its proper place and feels natural. I liked it. Maybe in a year or two I'll pick one up. Can't do that right now because I still owe too much on my '05 GMC Canyon.
My current ride. We'll be together for a while yet. 🙂
To those who ask "What's the deal with the skull and crossbones plate?" The deal is that in Florida they only give you one license plate so the front area is left empty. I had to put something there so I stopped by an Autozone and the skull thing was the only plate there that didn't look too dorky. 🙂
