First of all, hi! I'm obviously new here!
So here's the deal. I was given an 87 Ram 50 a couple weeks ago as part of a birthday present. I have been looking for a truck, growing up in Texas, trucks have always been a big deal. Anyways, when I saw this truck, I was slightly disappointed...that's not exactly what I meant when I said "I want a truck" but, not wanting to look a gift horse in the mouth, I graciously accepted.
I'll be honest, I never even knew these trucks existed, and I don't think I've ever seen one until I got this one. I've driven it a couple times, and I have to admit, it runs really well considering the age, and it was obviously taken care of. It just needs a few paint touch ups and the AC is a little off(which I've been told that I need to buy a conversion kit before recharging, there may be a thread on this, I've just started looking, but if anyone has any advice on this, please feel free to share), but it's pretty solid other than that.
Anyways, I've been trying to convince myself that this is a good little truck and I should be proud of it, but I still cringe just a little when I look out and see it in the driveway. So I need your help! If you all are enthusiasts...please tell me what makes these trucks so special?
I have at least managed to name him, just because I name everything, so everyone...meet Hector!
