About “RIV”

I GOT ONE OF MY DREAM CARS ON 4-8-09 FROM A GUY IN KEWAUNEE WISCONSIN FOR $3000 WITH OUT THE 100 SPOKE RIMS POWER SUN ROOF IT RUNS DRIVES THE CAR CAME FROM ARIZONA

WATCH THE VIDEO WALK AROUND WHEN I FIRST GOT IT

About “Ashley”

Well when I got this truck I had to tow it home. So My grandparents came down so I could tow it home since I didn't have something to tow it. Anyways on the way home we had an viaduct to go over. Well the climb wasn't too bad but on the way down I could hear the chain coming loose. Well right when we got to the bottom the chain came off and well I had to get the truck off the road so I coasted it around the corner and parked it. It took them awhile before they noticed that I was not behind them. I waited for about 5 minutes maybe and they came back around the corner and I just waved and laughed. I plan to keep this truck as factory as possible. Meaning keeping it looking stock but will be far from stock.
