While all the flower children are swooning over the latest electron-car from Deutchland, I decided to upgrade my truck situation:
One of Henry Ford’s finest: a pre-emissions 7.3 liter (444 cubic inches for us “Muricans) high- pressure injection turbo-diesel, Four Wheel Drive, crew cab, and tow package. 250 horsepower, and 505 pound-feet of torque. The F350 by itself weighs in at 6400 pounds, and is capable of hauling 3500 more pounds of cargo and passengers, or towing 15,000 pounds worth of trailer.
Yeah. Should be adequate for my peak needs.
