Congrats! Nice truck and nice haul rig. Thinking that could be a new thread -- posting a pic of when their D rolls off the hauler. I bet most of us have a few.

Enjoy the honeymoon.

And when the honeymoon is over, you"ll probably park it not wanting to spend a minor $100 for a part for an easy diy repair, and two years will pass and then you'll decide to sell it and when it's sold you'll miss it BADLY! Sure you'll purchase something better, updated even however it wont be the same...

Thanks everyone for the kind words. I would like to thank Josh and the others that really helped me make a good decision. I put 15 miles on her today, just around the neighborhood. Everything feels really tight and she runs really, really well. Let her idle for 30 mins and the vitals were spot on. I did stall out once and must have flooded it, 5 mins later it fired right up. Put Mothers Back to Black on the front grill, light surrounds, and the fenders and they look brand new. Here are a few more pics...

Oh yea and the 2k is for "sales tax". The title came with 24k written on the selling price so the state has to get it's cut. Ridiculous.
Are you Greek?

Matt, looking at the side view, it looks like you have a ton of snaps along the side rail, are those all snaps? Mine doesn't have that many ('94, Tickford top).
