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.
