So last night while doing my regular Craigslist cruise I came across a model 50 posted a couple hours earlier. Super clean original 50 for a price I couldn’t refuse. I text the guy right away and went to bed an hour later with no reply. It was late so I didn’t call the number. This morning I called at 7:30, the man answered and we spoke for a bit, turns out he is in his late 70s and doesn’t text. After getting his address I made the nearly 4 hour round trip to retrieve it. My 2500hd truck burned about $50 in gas making the trip so that puts my cost for this model 50 at about $125!
I think it was well worth it… what do you think?

And it has 1 brand new Goodyear! The other tire is cracked but still holds air. I will replace it.
