Default New Vehicle?

I was talking to one of my friends today, and he tells me his uncle is giving him a 71 Chevelle SS. He already has two vehicles right now, a WIP Show Truck, and his daily driver.
So i asked him what he'* going to do with 3 vehicles. He said he is selling the Show Truck, and he'* going to devote his time to the Chevelle.
The truck he'* selling is a 96 Blazer, shaved, bagged, etc. I have always loved that truck so for the heck of it i asked him how much he wants for it. (im expecting 4-5K+) he said he would sell it to me for about $2,000
And i am getting a new job (hopefully) soon will be making 7.00+ an hour and 30+ hours a week. So if everything goes good, and he gets the chevelle, i might just have a new truck!

That is a really old page, there is a lot more done to it now. Its still primer color, but stuff thats done now:
Rollpan
Shaved Taillights w/ LED'* in tailgate
License Plate in Tailgate
Gas Tank has been moved up so it can sit lower
gas tank filler nozel has been moved to behind the d-pillar
and right now the interior is pretty much stripped

So needless to say I'm kinda excited Now i just can't get my hopes up. Because every time i do something doesn't go right

Ew, trucks! Bonneville is the biggest car I'd ever buy. (This doesn't count for American muscle classics, though)

I'm a truck guy at heart... I've owned a full size Chevy Truck, and a 92 Jimmy.
But i do love my bonneville

Sounds sweet to me. Would love to see some more recent pics.
My first vehicle was a 94 *-10. Still love those and have always wanted a customized one.

Oh, that poor truck...

But, if it'* your thing, go for it! Sounds like a heck of a deal.

Good luck!

I grew up in the south, on a cattle ranch. I know it'* popular, but I donthink a truck should be treated that way. But, that'* just my opinion. And I'm old, stubborn and cynical.....
