"Bought this 95 Pic-up in 2005 with 97000 miles on it for about $2,250. The first time I drove it, I realized it was special. At 101000 miles, I put new clutch, p/plate, throw-out-bearing and fly wheel on it. It cost about $1000. At 105000 miles, I put new tires on and had the braking system over hauled about $500. At 111000, replaced the fuel pump located in the gas tank $120 (did it with some buddies). At 125000 miles changed/replaced the electrical relay for the AC blower $50 (was a do it yourself) but figuring it out when ASE shops could not took forever. My truck is ugly and the wife hates it parked in the drive-way but Little Hurcules has now in 2012, 145000 miles and just wont die. He gets no real TLC, I drive it hard and too fast, put loads so heavy in the back that the front tires barely touch the pavement. The paint is pealing and the driver door won't lock, well sometimes it won't shut, but the seatbelt works great! It leaks a little oil, but burns none and sips gas like a hot cup of coffee. My wife tried to buy me a new truck and I had her return it. I am asking all my friends(that are single)to take him, cause I can't bear the thought of him in the JunkYard, plus I can still use him when I have some heavy wk to do. In closing, if the wife leaves me, Hurcules can always come back. Pray for me."
