About “5.9 R/T”

I bought this truck bone stock in June 2006. It came from Ontario and had never been owned in Quebec.

About “Pace Truck”

My truck was one of those great screamin deals you hear about but never believe actually happen. I saw it advertised in the local "Penny Pincher" at $4,500 o.b.o. by such-and-such a date. I really couldn't afford a whole lot, so I made a lowball offer of $2,000. It turned out that mine was the ONLY offer... Believe it or not, the guy was so desperate for money that he took it!
(Sorry it's so dirty in the pictures. I don't have a camera anymore since some lowlife stole mine!)
