My Custom Show Truck
A Story by Buzzy Cummins

Nancy, my son's mother-in-law asked, "Why do you need a pick-up truck?" It kind of caught me off-guard. Everyone else just loved the old pick-up. I replied, "Well, it's kind of like the Seahawk's drafting philosophy. They go for the best athlete. I went for the best vehicle I could afford."

My wife and I have two cars, but one of them is a ZENN (Zero Emissions No Noise) neighborhood electric car. It save us money, at the gas pump, but it's only good for going to some place withing seven miles. I drive it to meetings and for shopping at Westgate and North Proctor. Have a Buick Century and a ZENN had worked out for nearly nine months, but was getting increasingly harder for the two of us. We coordinate our schedules to accommodate each other. When I had to hitch a ride with a friend to the Soroptimist Golf Tournament at Oakbrook, I knew we needed another car.

I started my search on Craig's List. I set the limit at $5000. One car lot kept coming onto my radar: TNT-Automite at South 48th and Washington here in Tacoma. They had a 2000 VW Jetta, that looked like a possibility. We drove to the lot and Peg stayed in our Buick while I wandered around looking at what they had. The reminded me of another lot on South Tacoma Way that I had bought a number of cars from years ago. Decent cars, trustworthy sales people, and affordable prices.

We drove the Jetta, a Dodge pick-up, and a Saturn. The Jetta had more miles on it than I wanted, but it was easy for Peg to drive. I thought about it a couple of days and then returned to find it sold. As I sat in the office I talked with the owner, Tom asking him about his cars. He had no problem taking a car away for a pre-purchase inspection. I asked about another and old Ford Pick-up. The price was really good. Peg and I drove it and then return. I ranked the three vehicles in this order: the Dodge, the Saturn, and the Ford. Tom wouldn't budge on the price for the Dodge, besides Peg didn't like driving it, but Tom came down $500 on the 1994 Ford. It had 170,000 miles on it, but I thought if it passed muster at All Transmissions, I just might buy it.

Pre-purchase inspection Tacoma - image.On Saturday morning I returned and took the F150 to the shop. Steve took the keys. He called about five hours later. Peg and I went to pick up the truck. "Someone took really good care of that Ford. Nice truck." I returned to TNT and asked Tom for the Carfax information. When he finally found it Tom said, "I should have charged you twice as much. It's a one-owner vehicle. It was bought new in Portland twenty years ago and has been in Tacoma ever since." The final price was $2500.

The next day Peg and I drove it to Edgewood for a family party. The family had to inspect the truck of course. My son Patrick has been searching for something that his 15-year old daughter, my granddaughter, would drive. He loved the car, "A few months from now when you're tired of it, you can give it to Bailee."

Since then friends have looked at the Ford (they love the blingy look) and one said, "I think I saw it at a car show about two years ago." Indeed it had seemed familiar to me as well. From the rain streaks and checkering on the tires, I figured that it had been simply sitting for the last couple of years. I imagine that a couple enjoyed camping (it has a towing package) and grew older with this beautiful classic.

I treated the old Ford to a tune-up, oil, lube, new brakes (front and rear) and a number of other tweaks of pre-ventitive maintenance that drove up my investment a bit, but I think this pick-up with a little help from All Transmissions will last me another twenty years.
