The next thing that happened we
never saw coming, not even for a minute. I drove the truck
home while my wife drove our other vehicle home. Something
magical happened on that 3 hour ride home. I absolutely
fell in love with that truck! I couldn't believe the power
it had, and something about the sound of that diesel engine just
When we arrived home I told my wife
about my experience. She rode with me and really took a
liking to the truck also. We were sold on diesel trucks
from then on. Not only was there more power, but the truck
got better fuel mileage than the same truck in a gas model.
How could you beat that?
It was right then that we decided to
keep the truck and tell my Father-In-Law that he missed out!
I didn't care that I would become the bad Son-In-Law....It was
worth it! Lucky for me, he decided not to get a diesel
truck after all. Funny how things work out!
I liked this diesel truck so much
that I decided to sell my 1999 Chevrolet Silverado Extended Cab
4x4 that I had bought just 6 months earlier. I liked that
truck a lot too. There was never a doubt in my mind after
driving my first diesel truck home.
My wife and I have been diesel truck
fans ever since. We have taken our truck on numerous road
trips, camping trips, and lots of other places and still enjoy
it as much as the day we first drove it home. It now has
193,000 + miles!
The Birth Of This
You might be wondering how the idea
of DieselTraderOnline.com was born. If you aren't, then
I'm going to tell you anyway! :-)
My wife and I own several web
business's and are always brainstorming new ideas for websites.
For a while I had been trying to figure out a way to marry my
love of Internet business with my love of diesel trucks. I
had remembered the hard time I had finding a diesel truck when
looking through online classified ads. If the ad didn't
say diesel in the headline (most didn't) then you would have to
waste a ton of time browsing through trucks you weren't
interested in. Eventually you would run across one here
and there, but boy was it frustrating!
This is when the idea was born for
this site. I thought that if I was having this much
trouble finding a diesel truck, then other people must be too.
So, I decided to develop a site that was strictly advertising
diesel trucks, making it a breeze to find the diesel truck your
During the development process other
ideas popped in my head. I wondered if visitors looking
for a diesel truck would also be interested in being involved in
a diesel community. Only time will tell about this, but
ideas in the works include a community forum, a classified
section for parts and accessories, a gallery for users,
contests, articles, and anything else that diesel truck owners
feel they might benefit from.
The hope is to make this site the
number one all around diesel site on the Internet. You can
help this cause by telling everyone that might be interested,
and also by submitting suggestions to us. If you have a
good idea that hasn't been mentioned yet please feel free to
email us at admin (at) dieseltraderonline.com .
Thanks for reading this to the end
and check back often for new features and updates. We look
forward to getting to know you and everyone else in the diesel
