I have a wild hair to sell my 2016 Silverado for something a lot older. I have it paid off and it's worth somewhere around $26,500 depending where and how I sell it.
I still need a truck and was entertaining the idea of something 80's or possibly early 90's. Maybe an old Chevy Cheyenne, K5, etc. I'll need to tow around 5,000 lbs a decent number of times per year. I live out in farm country in a town of less than a 1,000, so I really don't care about speed or anything fancy. I'm a windows down and go the speed limit kind of guy. (The kind TCL would hate to be behind )
Fuel economy would suck (obviously) and it'd be slower than a turtle, but is there anything to really worry about? Only thing that strikes me as a safety concern would be to update the brakes. I don't really care about the crash safety rating, I'll be daily driving my Camry. The thought of putting $5-$10K back in my pocket is intriguing. Figured I could sell and browse BaT for something else. Driving a classic would actually be enjoyable, too.
