My first Ford

So I just purchases my first Ford. I have been a die hard Chevy fan, but I found a 1997 F250 supercab with the 7.3 powerstroke. I'm really excited about it. My friend is telling me not to get it because its ugly, but I'm seeing the inner beauty in it. It has 80,000 miles on it. I'm looking forward for your help with my new truck.

80K on an OBS 7.3?! Snatch that thing up! Low miles OBS's are extremely hard to come by.

And you will love the OBS trucks. I was a die hard Chevy fan too... Until I bought my Ford
