« on: April 02, 2012, 11:06:33 PM »
Found a cheap 88 s10 on craigslist. Five speed with a four cylinder. I always loved that body style, only problem is it has somewhat hogh mileage. I was wondering if anyone knpw akything about them and if they were reliable, junk, what to look for ect ect?
Please, please, please, let me get what I want. Lord knows it would be the first time.

What's "somewhat high mileage"? Also, what's "cheap"? They rust if you look at them wrong, but they're reliable and dead simple.

Sorry, sent this from my phone n didnt feel like expanding in details haha.

150,000 miles, guy wants 750 - could probably talk him down though.

Actually, heres the CL ad:

Also, if I don't get this one Im'a still look for one, so any info anyone provides would be appreciated.

Shit, go drive it and see if it gets down the road ok. i'd pay $750 for it if it runs and drives good. Easily.

$750 is a fair price for that truck. That's right in line with what they are worth.
...and either quite drinking or quite posting because you're going into some sort of weird AMERICA 1776 FUCK YEAH mode.

Agreed these are good little trucks, took a buddies of mine a pound of sand in the oil and a month of driving to kill.
