The longer you live the more that you realize that life happens. When you’re younger, things might go as according to plan for you but as you gradually experience the ins and outs of life, you’ll soon learn that it doesn’t matter if you have a plan or not. Sometimes, a curveball will be thrown your way and you’re left to do nothing but deal with it which could mean that you have to make major life changes. Sometimes, these changes can be sprung on you in a matter of just moments and they can alter your path forever. It’s really a crazy thing when you break it down and think about it.
As a result of the financial crisis that our country had around 2008, lots of people were forced to make these quick decisions and change up exactly what they were doing with the possessions that they had in life.
This meant, for the people who were just on the edge of holding on, major liquidation had to be done in some cases. Now, selling a truck isn’t the end of the world, even if it’s something that high in sentimental value to you, if it’s what it takes in order to keep on putting food on the table and keeping the lights on. However, that isn’t to say that you won’t spend time trying to get it back, though.
This time, we check in with a YouTuber who took the liberty of surprising his dad by going out and buying an old Dodge Ram that he was forced to sell when the family got hit hard in 2008. It might not seem like much to most but when you consider the sentimental value in a lot of vehicles that you had in your life, the truck means a lot more than the price that was listed alongside it. It might not be the biggest or best vehicle around and it might’ve been neglected just a little bit by the people who had it in between now and when these guys were last around it but it really seems to be something that hits home for the father and son combo.
