The Humdinger - Part II

A couple of people have asked me if we'd gotten the truck painted yet, so I thought I'd do a quick post to show it off. We're really happy with the paint job, it looks great, but now I'm bugged that the bed doesn't have brush plate or trim.

The guy who painted it gave me a number for a company who does this stuff, but I don't think my "frugal" (notice I didn't say "cheap") hubby is gonna go for it. So this is probably how it will stay. And I will just have to learn to live with the heartache.

I pulled a horse to work the other day, and on the way home I was headed up the steep hill that used to kick the old GMC's hieney - it could only pull a horse up that hill at about 35 mph. Well, the new truck was cruising along at about 60 and all of a sudden it kicked into overdrive and we were going 75! At only 1800 rpms! Without even trying!

I have to say, this truck is just sexy. Am I sick and wrong for feeling this way about a truck? I don't care, it just is.

A man and his truck, it's a beautiful thing. What I really love is that it's YOU who's loving the power...that is sexy! Less time on the road going 35 and more time for blogging, photography & horses!!!
