    I just bought this at auction. i think i got a good deal????


    got it for $6000


    i'll have to pay 13% and some state tax but the end so i'll probably have $7000 into it.

    your thoughts?

  4. I think that's the non-turbo V8? Split shift rear end? I have driven similar trucks many miles and they were super reliable and I've driven the turbo charged inline six models quite a bit as well and they are both very reliable commercially built trucks. The power company that I work for only uses International cabbed bucket trucks. If your truck has the split shift rear end it can be tricky for people who are not familiar with that type of shifting. Once you get used to it it can be pretty fun.

    you must have money to burn. I wouldn't waste my time OR money buying into stuff like that.

    That's a little negative, don't you think?

    I make a little side money buying and selling stuff...cars, motorcycles, whatever. I love doing it. It drives my wife crazy.
