Goodbye old girl
So with a new starter motor installed and running great, it was time to get the Magnum up onto the lift and give her a review prior to taking in for her annual inspection.
Hmm. Every bushing was shot. The entire suspension would need replacing. I tried to convince myself that she’d get through the inspection … but not a hope. One look and she’d fail.
So I took the hard decision to replace her. I’m getting emotional typing this months later!
We test drove a Ford F150 but ultimately went with a Dodge Ram 1500. All black. Love it. The same 5.7 motor as the Magnum but now paired to a 8 speed transmission. Goodbye Maggie – we’ll miss you.
