    I put my 1993 Dodge Ram Cummins Diesel Truck up for sale on FB Marketplace!!! I have been back and forth about selling it for a couple of years now. In 2017 I put it in Craig's List and got crazies calling me and asking me to ship the truck and pay them the fee, which would **cough, cough** be reimbursed. Nobody serious called. A friend told me to try Marketplace so that interested locals would check it out. Wish me luck!!!

    it looks to be in very good condition. good luck! :)

    when i sold my car i listed in via CL and had a few people inquire
    about it but they never showed up.

    i ended up selling it by putting it at the end of the driveway with
    the for sale sign on it. some guy driving by wanted it as soon
    as he saw it and when i started it up he said he'd take it.

    HA, HA!!! Yes, Pyg is now 11yo, and we couldn't cure the cancer in her front paw, but my Vet suspects that something else will kill her in the end. I wouldn't let my Vet take her leg and she is thoroughly enjoying our 9mo GS puppy, Eva, who is now 65 lbs! Pyg and I have been through a LOT, what with DH's heart disease and hospital stays. She is SO SMART, takes care of all of the cats and lets me know when Eva needs to go out and she can read me like a book. Why ANYBODY would dump their older dog is beyond my understanding. I will keep her and nurse her until the bitter end. I know it sounds morose, but I buried Xena (GS/Collie, 1998-2008, RIP) and covered her with four 16in pavers, then buried Rose (Husky/GSxBC, 2007-2017, RIP) covered her with 4 pavers, then I bought 4 more of the same to cover Pyg, when her times comes.

    Not morose at all. It is your memorial to your beloved pets. My sister has an iron fence around her pet cemetery. Several people in the family bury their pets there also.

    I viewed this and was reminded of our lovely friend Alex and all of his truck shenanigans. I hope the new owner loves that truck.

    i didn't find it morose at all. honoring one's friends and companions is how it should be. too bad we can't be put right down next to them without all the rest of it disturbing things...
