Howdy-ho neighbor! It’s been a while since I updated y’all on the Road to Buying a Rusty Truck… so let’s do this!
I’ve stumbled across several rusty ‘ol trucks since we last chatted. But still haven’t found the ideal one. It’s gotta be perfect before I make the plunge. But I have to say, I think I enjoy taking pictures of these beauties just as much as the process of buying one! They’re just so dang pretty, even if they aren’t exactly what I’m looking for.
I couldn’t help but think about Red Rosie and Big Boy Blue when I spotted this Chevy tailgate. The colors with those crispy white letters is simply perfection.
But the further I travel down this road of finding the perfect truck, I am quickly learning, there may be no such thing. Kinda like buying a house. It could be the perfect house but a poor location. Or the best location but the kitchen is small. Finding the perfect truck can be tough! But I’m not giving up!! In fact, I’m learning a lot along the way.
And you’d be surprised what you can find on the hunt! We actually found another vintage camper that we love! The price is right. It’s so cute! Needs work, but c’mon, y’all know we’re no stranger to that. Just waiting on word of the title, to see if we can move forward. Gotta have a title to take her on the road! I’m not getting my hopes up, though. We’ve been there and done that! But we’ll see what happens!! And I’ll keep y’all posted!! Thanks for coming along on the ride!!
