Shatto Got a New Truck

I bought a new Ford F250 Tri-Flex Fuel Truck

And returned to the dealer yesterday because I couldn't get the radio to work…The service technician explained that the radio was voice activated.

'Nelson,' the technician said to the radio. The radio replied, 'Ricky or Willie?' 'Willie!' he continued and 'On The Road Again' came from the speakers.

Then he said, 'Ray Charles!', and in an instant 'Georgia On My Mind' replaced Willie Nelson.

I drove away happy, and for the next few days, every time I'd say, 'Beethoven,' I'd get beautiful classical music, and if I said, 'Beatles,' I'd get one of their awesome songs.

Yesterday, some guy ran a red light nd nearly creamed my new truck, but I swerved in time to avoid him.


Damn I love this truck!

Re: Shatto Got a New Truck

Which cab style? Engine size? 2WD or 4WD? Box length?

Re: Shatto Got a New Truck

So what did the radio start playing after hearing your response to the almost-crash?

Knowing Shatto, he'll tell us Air America or NPR, when it was really Rush Limbaugh: and he's still driving his old truck.

Re: Shatto Got a New Truck

Are you going to install a bypass filter? I just got a new Elantra and was wondering what your thoughts would be on doing this on a new vehicle? If so, what are the warranty ramifications? Good luck with your new truck! (For the first time in 22 years there was a hail storm at work and I now have 2 slight dents in the roof of my new car! Man! But how can I complain seeing the weather damage that so many are suffering this year.)
