Bad, Bad LeRoy Brown

This is LeRoy, Chris's 1986 Nissan 720 pickup:
LeRoy has 292,000 miles on him and has been around longer than I have. LeRoy has been a good truck for Chris and even holds the title of "The First Vehicle Chris Ever Wrecked" (before he ever even had his driver's license by the way).

Over the years, LeRoy has slowly fallen to pieces... literally. Notice that he has no tailgate. It fell off one day. He also has a huge hole in the driver's seat (that is stuffed with foam), a hole in the truck bed (that one day a 25 pound barbell fell out of while Chris was driving down the highway... yikes!), and only runs when he feels like it is necessary. Despite all this, LeRoy has been a good truck.

Last Thursday, Chris finally sold LeRoy. It felt like losing part of the family, but we just didn't need him or really use him anymore.

Goodbye, LeRoy. Goodbye.

That's awesome that someone bought a 1986 Nissan pickup with 292,000 miles and missing pieces! How did Mona and Celeste take the loss?
