About “Black Betty”
I actually went on craigs list and was wanting to buy a old mustang or camarro. I couldn't find anything that caught my eye. So I started looking for an old truck. I still couldn't find anything. I put an ad up asking for a cheep vehicle that needed a little work but that would go up and down the street. I found her in Springfeild MO. Drove her home that night and hadn't had any issues with her on the way home. About 150 miles.
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.
