Talking Deal of the century 1 customer 0 dealership!

Well you see I went to the chevy dealership to look at a 91 regcab 2.3/5spd.....well lets just say it had issues. they happened to have a 98 supcab/4dr 3.0/5spd 205k miles very clean minus some paint fade and a little hail damage. Salesman asked what I was looking to spend I said 2k. He went to go check if he could sell it for that. Came back saying they need 2400. I said 2200 was the max. It took two more visits with the manager and the last time he came out to me and I explained I wouldn't be heartbroken if they couldn't sell it too me. he tried to get me to go up 150 more and I said no. He walked back in and shortly after the salesman came out and said sold. Both trucks where on the back lot waiting to go to auction.

just had the quicklane check it out. No leaks and doesn't need any work done. Only thing wrong is one of the sway bar links is broken

nada's suggested retail value is 4900!! It runs great needs very minor TLC, but its clean for a 13 year old truck! I am going to sell the topper on it so I will end up gaining a little cash back.

I feel like I stole this truck lol.

Plan is for a 4/5, wheels and I am going to start collecting 01-03 edge parts. Probably put it in for paint later this year or beginning of next year. For now it's just a DD.

Might PS it tomorrow when I can get a good side shot of the truck. Eventually I will put some 06's on it. So I will let you know when I swap them out.

I have only bought 5 vehicles in the last year and most I made a small profit on when selling.
