just a quick update on the old trucks. The '79 C65 chevy has been working very hard lately hauling. It has been carrying loads up to 7 tons legally without a hitch. still not the quickest truck out there but always delivers. gas milage still sucks but for the price I paid for it I can't even begin to complain.
The '94 ford got a new lift pump and injector pump about a month ago. so far that has been the biggest maintenance expense for the truck in the 5 years i've had it. it really woke up the pulling power and now I'm not having any trouble towing 6 tons. again it won't win any races but it sure has made money.
so half way through this summers work season i am very pleased with the old trucks. more importantly it's great to not have payments and enjoying the lower insurance costs.
