Default Awesome......... Picked up 98 SSt

I am so fired up to be a member of the SSt owners. Two weeks ago I found a red SST on craigslist, cheap. Seller must have been in a bad way to let it go so cheap. I didn't think I would be the first one to see it, but it was a rainy nasty day. I went to meet the guy where the truck was parked, and got there before he did. We hadn't even struck a deal, I hadn't heard the truck run, but I called my tow truck driver and told him to head my way. It looked rough, it had been sitting in that parking lot around 2 1/2 months. There was a dent in the bed, and a rear tire had gone flat. The paint has some fading, and peeling. I didn't care it was love at first sight. He couldn't get the truck started when he got there and reduced the price even more. I could tell it was going to be ok. Like I said, I had already called the tow driver. Oh man what a find, yes its a project truck, but I can't wait to dive in.

BTW- my other rides

1993 Dakota ext cab 2wd
1996 Ram 1500 ext cab 2wd
1999 Chrysler Town and Country
2002 Ram Van

I was looking for a 4x4 to replace the 96, when I found this SST, so I will still be looking for another deal. My friend has a 2002 quad cab long bed with low mileage, blue. I wanted a white truck, but I will take a look at it. Next nice day I will try to get some pics of the SST and post some "in the beginning pics". As I rode out of that parking lot with the truck in tow I had an ear to ear grin that made my face hurt. I am so charged up over that lil red SST.
I have not stopped patting my self on the back for two weeks.
