    I'm Dion, I come from the Netherlands .

    I love (classic) pick up trucks very much, I love to have one.
    But I live in a nation where you pay awful lot of money the ride a truck.

    when I have a better house with a large garage , I buy a 40 +years truck ( oldtimer arrangements )
    Till than I barrow some time a truck

    Yes Sir, had a '96 Silverado Z71 that the transmission took a crap in. Since my kids are tall I needed a Truck with a bigger cab. The Ram was the right price at low miles. I actually just sold the Chevy last week. Beautiful country side in the vid you posted.

    Yeah, that countryside sure is pretty... truck doesn't sound too bad either, LOL. Hey, Dion, how does the Netherlands penalize you for driving a truck? Higher insurance, registration, etc.? I know fuel there is costly, my family used to live in Europe for five years, but that was a long time ago... however, I still have family in England, Germany & Italy, and they all say fuel is expensive. :eek:
