Bummer. My advice is buy this FT-1900 for $75 and install it in the truck http://denver.craigslist.org/ele/3884341297.html
Then get one of those cheap Baofeng's for your first HT... but spend most of your time setting up and learning to operate the mobile FT-1900.
edit: Interesting, he's got a 2900 too for $100? http://denver.craigslist.org/ele/3884325912.html
Get both of them..
almost a no-risk deal as those are both great deals, you could try both out then sell the other to someone else in the club here for even money. I'd pick it up but I already have 2 2800's I don't use...
