Sold my truck

Post  Fifty - Five on Mon 11 May 2009, 12:07 am

Well I finally sold my pickup Thursday night. It's kinda bitter sweet tho. The guy that bought it left my house bout 8:00 or so and had about a hour drive home. So I figured he may call when he got there to say he made it and the truck drives ok. But instead I got a call about a hour and a half after he left with him telling me the fire dept was putting the truck out. It seems a fuel line ruptured close to the carb and spewed gas everywhere. He said the cab got the worst of it. He's supposed to send me some pics and I'll post em as some as I get them. He's not mad at me and said his insurance would actually cover it if he decides to go that route. Man I wrecked myself until he called Friday evening and told me it looked like a fuel line. I had told him everything I knew about the truck and would have made the same drive he was making in the truck myself without any hesatation. But that still sucks knowing that is the way my truck ended burning on the side of 85. Crying or Very sad
