Long time lurker I figured I'd finally join. I've had my 1989 f-250 7.3 for about 6 years now. Originally bought it for 1000$ in grants pass Oregon. I'm the second owner with service records showing 126,000 when I got it so now it sits at 185,000 miles. Despite now living in the salt zone its fairly clean minus the several smash marks Its acquired from idiots who can't drive (Ive been hit three times while parked) Its an auto 2wd with the e40d and i've averaged a very respectable 18.5mpg. I see a 5 speed swap in my future.
