Nice looking truck, you can tell he loves it cause he's grinning like a mule eating sawbriar.
That was my neice that got the import, a honda civic ( $1500)
Yesterday my sister calls me and said the motor was making a funny noise and asked if I would come over to look at it.
I get over there and the thing had no oil lifters clacking like crazy, it took almost 4 quarts to fill up. The thing is burning oil like crazy and nobody bothered to check it.
Motor quited down some but its on its last leg now for sure.
I ended up buying the 92 firebird ($1200) that my sister and neice passed up on to get the honda and its a great car. One owner 64,000 original miles no smoke and no leaks, all I had to do was rebuild the rear wheel cylinders ( leaking ) and put on new shoes. I told my sister it's for sale if interested....lol

Live and learn right?

I just bought my boy a '91 GMC Sonoma for $750. Not a bad little truck. When he proves he can take care of it maybe we'll upgrade in a year. His brother will be turning 16 then and we could just hand it down to him. He wanted a truck so he could haul his dirt bike.
It's a regular cab, so I don't have to worry about him piliing it full of kids.

When I was in school my dad wouldn't let me buy my own car....he had some misguided idea that I would hot rod it and get into trouble. :? He furnished me a car to drive which I am thankfull for...but it was a chevette. His misguided idea gained some credibility when I busted the shifter off the top of the trans practicing power shifting...I tried to explain that it just broke and it must have been cracked or something when I got it...but he didn't buy it. He then bought an automatic trans from another chevette at the salvage yard and put it in there...talk about a slug. :cry:
