    My mechanic goes to auctions and has been keeping a look out for (ME) F-250 but says they're keeping their value due to lower gas prices..
    Anyone else seeing this? even trucks with over 175,000 miles are still going for $6,900:dizzy:

    I miss higher gas prices .....:D

    Haha. You'd be pumped if the guy who started this thread was a Duramax/MVP fan. Haha. I would say your best bet would be sell those junk Chevys and Westerns and get some Fords and Fishers. :D We all have different likes though. Haha. :p Im just waiting to be looking at other threads and see you have a post in little letters like "Funny you would mention an engine, I actually have a truck with a diesel engine for sale." Haha! :D

    Prices fall a little bit but it's still a truck that can do work. When it comes down to it the price of fuel is not that much of a factor. It costs you another buck or two to plow the lot. The guy that bought the truck new still paid $35K for it, he is not going to take a big bath on it. The truck will sit before he takes a cold bath on it.
