    Hi, my name is Dustin and I have an addiction.

    2017-12-09 20.43.51.jpg

    Found this truck devoid of a powertrain. Originally a diesel, I intend to swap the powertrain from the parts truck into this and flip it. Interior is in good condition, body is pretty straight, no rust, but there is some clear coat peeling. Overall though a good truck.

    98, so fully compatible with the 99 donor. All the wiring changes and piddly shit will play ball with the wrecked truck. There's definitely a market for it here, I just wish I had more non-borrowed space to do this shit. I stand to make a couple thousand off of this. I'm going to treat this professionally. What that means is I intend to document expenditure and time invested very accurately to see what the dollar/hr is when I finish.

    I put myself through college buying and selling. 157 vehicles in 3 years. I averaged $487 profit per vehicle. That was in the 90's. I won't touch something now that I don't think I can make at least $1,000 on.

    Back in those days I bought anything with tires. I recall that I had 5 Datsun B210's.

    That's been my threshold as well for stuff I've flipped in the past.

    I'm the complete opposite, sink too much into something then sell it for less. Hmmm maybe that's why I keep everything lol

    It's why I won't get off my 1500. I totally get it.
