Keep On Truckin'

I never thought I was a pickup truck kind of girl

Ever since I had kids my life has required a minivan

But lately my business has really taken off

The Kramer Angle is in three locations!

I've been racking up the miles on the Honda Odyssey and shoving as much furniture as I can in the back in my quest to fill my shops.
Which has made my husband, oh, a tad cranky!

So, a few months ago I found myself daydreaming about buying a pickup truck like this one.   
1956 Ford F-100 Pickup 1
Vintage cool, right?
I love the whitewalls, the candy apple red finish and could definitely see myself hauling my industrial chic finds back to the barn in this beauty!
But they're not exactly easy to come by, not to mention easy on the checkbook.

So, instead I set my sights on another truck.

It belongs to my absolute favorite brother-in-law in the entire world!
Who also happens to read my blog! 
(Hello, Ron!)
Ron is awesome!   
Cool, calm and collected and always on the cutting edge of technology.   
He likes the good things in life.
Like an awesome truck.
He has a a Toyota Tundra, like this one:
So, I hinted around, I pleaded, I begged, I appealed to his ego in an effort to get him sell me his truck.
I explained
a suave, sophisticated, smart man like himself should be driving a more current model truck.
A 2008 is so beneath him.
But, he didn't buy it.
He didn't even budge.
(I told you he was cool!)
The truck is still in his garage.

Defeated and disappointed I set out to find a truck that would suit my needs.
Extended cab.
(To stash my smalls!)
Eight foot bed.
(To hold the big stuff!)
(No excuse to stay home!)
And this is what I came up with.
A 1998 Chevy Silverado
Extended cab!
Eight foot bed!
4 x 4
I picked it up today.

Now all I need to do is find some of those hitch hanging bull testicles and a gunrack for the cab and I'll be all set!
Let me know if you want to ride shotgun!
I'll pick you up!
