The "New" Beater

Well, he did it. Gerry got rid of the quad, the plow, the ramps and the helmets and got a "beater", and we came out ahead- money in the bank.

He had been talking about selling the quad for a while since he didn't go out on it much- a few times last year- berry picking, a trip or two into the bush. Plus he did do some clearing of snow, but says he misses having a truck. We have the SUV and the car, but most guys that are handymen need a truck. To go to the lumber yard or to the dump. Gerry felt lost without a we made the trade off.

What he sold:

-quad: $4200
-helmets x 2- $30
-ramps- $150
and the plow and mount we used towards payment of the truck.

What he bought:

1996 truck-  $1,000
but, since he traded the plow and mount that shaved $300 off the price.. so got it for $700 cash.
It will need a few things though- oil change, new starter, belt, etc., but still an all and all good deal, and my honey is happy with a truck to beat around in.
