one cube van

CIMG5308

I got a call from Bruno at Cintas the other day. He saw me wearing my Ricky/Cintas shirt on the cover of 'Le Journal de Montreal' and immediately wanted to be part of the project. Bruno offered one cube van for the trip to Yahk.

CIMG5309

I accepted his offer. I now have one cube van.

Specs:
-1995 Ford Cube Van.
-7.3 LTR Diesel engine
-16ft box
-203,688 miles (328,000 KM )
-It is awesome

It is totally tuned up and ready to go. I will drive the cube van ANYWHERE in North America for the right offer. You will not have to pay ANY of the transport cost to get the cube van to wherever you are - delivery is included. The Cintas logos will be taken off before I hand over the van. I will wash the cube van. I will even buy you a new air freshener...the scent of your choice.

swapped for the cube van.

Dragonwind said...

203 thousand miles on a diesel engine means it's just barely broken in! Tuned up with proper care and a diesel will run damn near forever. Rutine maintenance, proper care and intelligent driving can make the van run for many many thousand miles more.

p.s. Intelligent driving is something that the majority of drivers don't know how to do. This includes using the turn signals you purchased with your vehicle, yes my friends, those pretty flashy lights that go on and off to show other drivers that you intend to make a turn, are not on your vehicle just for the red lenses. USE them. maybe you'll live long enough to have kids (one can hope not).

Here's an idea: Use the van to move people's stuff- they pay the gas costs, and you get an item from them in return to barter online. You'll get several more items to barter or eventually SELL (I know that defeats the idea of cheating Revenue Canada, but it will be worth it in the end). Then again, you just might get enough stuff to trade for a house.
