In 1998 I decided to trade my car in for a truck, so my girlfriend and I went looking. We tried out a dakota and thought it was ok. My girlfriend saw a full size dodge with the prettiest blue paint you ever saw and said we should compare it to the dakota. Needless to say there was NO comparison. I sat up in that truck and a warm fuzzy feeling came over me. so I bought the truck. I’ve nicknamed her beastie, because that’s what she is. Heavy loads never slowed her down nor did snow or ice. Had her partially restored in 2015. I’ve had offers to sell her, but I’ll keep her till the end. I have since put a new front end in and added stainless steel exhaust. She may be 22 years old with 160,000 miles but she purrs like a kitten(or baby beastie, if you will)
