October 12, 2014I was coming home on Friday evening and pulled up to the curb in front of my house where I usually park it. I noticed that there was someone behind me that pulled up behind me. Made me a little nervous and watched him from my rear view mirror. He got out and approached me waving. I got out and he asked me if I wanted to sell the truck. I said no as I just changed engines and trans rebuild about 11,000 ago and it`s running great. We talked about it and he really liked the shape I keep it in. I showed him the cab and engine and he threw me an offer....uh.....$7000 cash. I looked at him with and "Are you serious" look!! I told him I`d think about it. He said he really wants to buy it and said he would come back in a few weeks...but I know where he lives, he`s close to me.
Ok, now, I`ve always wanted a Lightning, however I would need the extra/crew cab. So I`m thinking I could look for the 2002 Gray Harley Davidson edition and get the best of both needs/wants!!
So, I`m really considering this. I`ve seen a couple of very nice stock 02 HD`s on Craigslist for 10,000-13,000. I really don`t want a car payment (I really can afford it, just don`t want one!!).
I`m kind of hoping this guy is serious with the $7000 offer. I`d love that 02 Harley...and it would only cost me around $5-6000 out of my pocket.
I`d hate to part with my baby "Ole Reliable" of 16 years but it`s an offer I`m having a hard time resisting.
