    A local nursery has a 1993 GMC 3500 Regular Cab Long Box for sale. In the past 2 years the truck has recieved the following:

    New Tires
    New motor 20K ago
    Rebuilt tranny 20K ago
    New ball joints, pitman arm, tie rods, etc.
    New Fuel Pump, New Battery
    New Alternator

    The truck has its share or dings and scratches, Power Windows, Locks, DMI Steel Bumper, 4x4, 242,000 miles on it now. They are asking $4000.00. Do you think its a solid buy or not? I cant lean one way or the other, so I need some help!!!:dizzy: :dizzy:

    If he can show you receipts for the motor and trans etc, then it might be an alright deal. If he doesn't have any proof of the parts and work he is claiming, then I'd have to pass.

    If its got a new engine, trans and front end work its not a bad deal. But, If they are asking $4k they might take $3k. Go there with cash and make the offer.

    I got the cash for either amount. He has the reciepts for the whole thing, but I do want it painted, which they can do in house at their shop. I was thinking about offering him $4K including the paint job.:rolleyes: We shall see...
