The Beast

There will always be an ongoing dispute about which pickup is the best… the most common rivalries being between Ford, Chevy or the Dodge Ram.

After I finished up my Navy days, I bought myself a truck… a brown, 8 cyclinder Ford Explorer, which I nicknamed the Beast and it became a workhorse carrying more weight than her limit at times. The odd scratch and dings on the tailgate gave the Beast her own character.

Today, the Trucks are bigger and look more fancy. Too nice to be be dirtying up with firewood, fishing gear, dirt & gravel, etc. And they can guzzle the gas for sure. I would say the most work an average truck gets these days are hauling around travel trailers in the summer

Then there’s this monster call the Conquest Knight XV … a truck lover’s dream ride built only in Toronto, Canada.

One good thing about pre-launches is; a potential investor has plenty of time to size up an opportunity and see if it’s an acceptable risk. RevSharingClub is one of those programs and it’s scheduled to launch on the 6th of August.
