I wanted to share some of my concerns on the purchase of your family's truck.
It is a beautiful truck and I would really like to have it in my barn.
Unfortunately diesel trucks do not tolerate inactivity very well.
You have to be vigilant regarding the fuel system.
The bacterial problems with the fuel normally do not show up

Probably just like you I want my vehicle in safe and reliable condition.
I am sure that I haven't told you anything that you didn't already
know but, I don't want you to think that I was trying to offer less
than I should for your truck.
