Mechanical Malarkey Buys a Truck!

I’ve teased this on Instagram, and yes, I bought a truck. It’s a 1990 Ford F-250. And it’s camouflage.

It’s in a bit of rough shape, but it’s a tank. Power comes from the 4.9 liter 6 cylinder and has a 5 speed transmission. I would’ve liked a V8 four wheel drive, but this is cool too. To get it ready to go on the road all I really have to do is make the lights work, do an oil change, and paint over the 3’s on the doors. I’m not sure if I’ll be making many how-to posts about working on it, because it’s old and beat up enough that I might not end up following normal procedures.


New blog posts every Monday and Thursday, plus pictures throughout the week on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!

Mechanical Malarkey stickers available for $5 anywhere in the US!
