I had started this plan when two years before it actually happened. I'd started reading the classified ads in the Dallas Morning News and thinking about the truck I wanted to buy when I turned sixteen. I knew that it would let me do even more work with my lawn mowing business and give me some freedom as well.
By the time I turned sixteen, I knew about what I could afford and what kind of trucks I liked. I got my driver's license on my birthday and immediately started calling classified ads and asking my parents to drive me to meet the sellers. I didn't look at too many before I found my truck.
