This morning my friend's wife posted on FaceBook that they are retiring and selling their plumbing business of 17 years. He specialized in home warranty work so it may be hard to sell. She included a picture of my personal truck I sold to them when I sold my business to one of my guys. What I found surprising was, the vinyl letters I had put on 20-years ago still look pretty good. The hand painted letters he added 14-years ago are almost faded away.

It is an Isuzu diesel. One of our trucks was the GMC tilt cab with the gas engines but it was not very reliable.

I don't know how much they are selling their business for but I sold him the truck for $21,000, 14 years ago.

I just got back from a road trip today. Drove to west palm beach. On the hwy I saw some pretty interesting plumbing vans.... some looked like the picture below. Some were even more ellaborate. They dont use trucks like that up here often...

It really is a nice bed and because he only does light service it has stayed that way. The front compartment goes from one side to the other so I kept things like my compressor and 300 pipe machine there. The next compartment on both side are built-in roll-away drawers for all of the repair parts. It was hard going from that to my Blackwood but needs change and the Blackwood was more fun to drive

When I bought my first E-350 cutaway I was living in California but working in Nevada. I had all sorts of guys stop tp look at it because they had never seen one before. Now they are everywhere.

Bright young lad, you are.

If you happen to remember an exit for New Smyrna Beach on I95, you could have turned right (west) and been to my house in just over 1/2 hour. Kinda between Daytona Beach and Orlando.
