I Do Have a Soul


I now believe in love at first sight! I have found my "Soul" mate! I made the mistake of looking at one of these babies while getting an oil change and tire rotation. I really did make an honest effort to resist the allure, but to no avail. There was a couple of days wait for the color I wanted to arrive by truck. My Soul arrived and any buyer's remorse that I might have felt dissipated immediately.

I drove it for the next couple of days and now it is parked in the driveway patiently waiting for summer to be over. It may get a little exercise if there is a trip out of town, but otherwise the "little red truck" gets the miles. There is something about driving a 5-speed pick-up truck that stirs a "country girl's heart". Unfortunately, the fishtailing on slick streets does not, therefore bad weather means the truck sits.

Yes, now it can truly be said that I have a "Soul", at least this one!

I love it! The first time I saw one, I was hooked...I'm pretty sure it's gonna be my next car.

Amazing list of standard equipment and a reasonable price tag.

City girls dig five speed trucks too... nothing like getting on the road and doing some soul searching with your soul mate.

Now appears to be a great time to purchase a car. Enjoy!

I'm happy for you Willa. It looks like it has to have room too. Hey next time you head for brunch send me an email. I always wanted to try the lighthouse.
