    1987 Mazda B2000, used that for a few years, part time, and when I went full time in 1995, bought a very sad looking 1986 GMC 1 ton dump truck. I sold the GMC in 1999, the guy who bought it still has it on the road today.

    86 Pontiac 6000 followed by a 70 Chevy 3/4 ton pu (in 1994) My old partner started his in a Pontiac Bonneville carried the equip upstairs to the balcony at the apartment. What is it about Pontiacs ? Now he has at least 15 trucks, a crane, multiple skid steers and 17 acre's worth millions. Everyone starts somewhere. I have a client that is a Billionaire started with 1 truck 35 years ago he and his wife both drove. Now they own one of the biggest trucking companies in the country and about 25 other companies. Thats the USA for you.

    1997 Dodge Stratus. with the back seat folded down, i could fit my 21" Lawn Boy in the truck and close it. From there I used my Dad's 1996 Dodge Dakota until March when I leased my Dodge Ram 2500.
