Big Blue Mountain View

Here’s another photo from a couple of days ago inside the Dell Webb community, the mountains to the west always look so nice with the palm trees in the foreground. On another note, I’ve been considering buying a new truck for a few weeks now so today I did some serious shopping. I checked Chevy, Ford, and Dodge.

I am on the hunt for a truck with a small-block V8 engine and a five or six-speed manual transmission and came up empty. The big three have stopped building trucks like this a good while ago which sucks. I did find one very nice Dodge truck with a 350CID engine and with a short box bed.

The numbers were decent for the trade-in value but the bottom line for me is that I attach plenty of sentimental value to my current truck. That is what stopped me from committing to a deal. Damn, that Dodge was so nice too! There will be other deals available down the road…

  1. Best of luck with your hunt for a new truck. We’ve been contemplating trading our beater in, but it’s served us well over the years and it would be nice to squeeze in another year or two.

    • Thanks, I thought about it last night, decided this morning to keep my old truck. Why take on a payment….

  2. When the truck is right for you, you’ll know. Take your time. I look at lots of vehicles and just haven’t found what I really want yet.

    • Hi Anneli, yeah it’s so hard! I got a text from the person I spoke with at the dealer. They are very persistent! I dunno, gotta chew on this a bit more.

  3. We just got my husband a Ford Ranger earlier this year. He really misses his Dodge Ram but didn’t need such a big truck any longer.

    • Dodge builds a great truck, so does Ford in my opinion, I hope he loves his Ford Ranger! I keep thinking about that Dodge truck this eve!
