As an adult I am coming to realise I can pretty much have anything I wanted as a kid on a whim. When I was a kid my dad had an old truck I really liked. He sold it when I was a first grader and I was sad .Now for some reason the only car I could see myself wanting is a 1990-1994 Chevy Siverado 4x4. I guess it brings back good memrories for me. The question I have is in the year 2013 is this a realistic car/ truck to get for weekend driving? They go for like 5-8 thousand now days and usually have 100-150 miles on them. I have a nice newish car for daily driving already I was just thinking of a "fun" second car/ first truck. I don't drive very much anyway. My parents just kind of giggled at the notion and thought I was silly. Granted my dad has a 81 vette, but it has less than 80 k miles on it and has been his since 84. My parents act like cars are worthless after 200 thousand miles and will blow up or something. Would sinking like 5-7 grand in a 20 year old truck be a bad idea? How does one take care of an old car anyway? What constitutes a lemon when shopping/ how do you spot one? I feel like a truck would be the most practical fun secondary vehicle I could get and the price is right. Nothing ever fits in my egg shaped car anyway... Any thoughts on the feasabilty of this?
