Finnegan's Garage Ep.59: I Bought Finding the Auction Corvette a "NEW" 1 week ago   20:38

Finnegan's Garage
This is part 1 of an insane adventure that my friend David Newbern and I just went on. A super rare '89 GMC Sierra 3500 Crew Cab Ramp Truck hit the internet last Wednesday and I couldn't help myself; I had to have it. So we flew to Cincinnati on Friday and bought it, intending to road trip it home. The seller claimed it had just 35,000 miles on it and that it was ready to road trip. The mileage claim was correct. The road trip portion of their statement was total BS! Witness the joyous discovery and test drive of the ultimate hauler and then watch in horror as we nearly get destroyed by tractor trailers when the 454ci V8 shuts off as we reached the top of a two-lane bridge and had to roll backwards down the highway.

Part 2 will be live next week and you'll see how we overcame the odds and extreme parts failure to make it back home with our new favorite tow pig!

Lesson learned LONG ago, never trust a fuel filter in a truck that has been sitting.
Great Dimitri
Wireless backup camera....okay. No need. Everyone just can't stop spending money. They drove in reverse without a problem for 100+ years...perhaps the passenger spot you or let someone else back it up if you can't.

How much was this?
james Branner
Yes I park outside window all the time with both hot rods I have so I can look at them
Ian Roberts

Brooks Biteman
Damn, you guys beat me to that truck.
Layne Douglas
Are you kidding me? The truck says SCHMALTZ Racing Team. Who names their team SCHMALTZ Racing? and you wonder why the sellers would not help out? Maybe they were part of the SCHMALZ team.....

Roadkill with mike and dave as usual XD lol
Brett Carlow
never wanted a ramp truck now i want one for no reason
The way that other guy wears his seatbelt is a bit pointless?
You guys needed some Whitesnake, Rush, and Willie Nelson tapes for that trip--would've completed the package.
That pinstripe reminds me of the late 80's early 90's it has the Heartbeat of America Pinstripes on that thing
I still have my cassette's from my high school days and before they have been gathering dust since the early 90's when I switched to CD's and now I have CD's that I have converted to MP3 so now I don't even use CD's anymore
This Mopar livery D800 truck is probably still for sale somewhere.
Would make me a proud son to see that live again.

You finally got out of the doghouse, now your working your way back in!😉
I died laughing when he pulled the phone out 😂😂😂😂

17:23 *IF ANYONE THOUGHT THEY WERE JOKING???* You can see the chain link fence out of the rear pass. door going by backwards, it's not a joke, lol. BEAUTIFUL TRK, fix fuel issue & remove/replace front seats w/buckets & a center console....then it's PERFECT!!!!
