I am seeking honest advice here. I have an 82' Chevy S10 long bed. I have had it for 8 years and have had to do very little to it except normal maintenance. The body is in almost perfect condition, just a few scratches and minor little dents here and there. It runs so-so...It need a new muffler. Leaks oil like a seive so I just keep pouring it in there. It had 120,000 miles when the Odometer quit working 2 years ago. Original motor and transmission. Now the question.......Should I just keep it or get something new or newer. I thought I wanted something newer til I started shopping around and got "sticker shock" big time....A payment of $385. a month for 5 years on a used truck is not acceptable. Fact.......Ain't gonna happen....never...My DS had the idea that even if I borrowed the money to put like a new motor and transmission,new paint and maybe interior, then I would have a "like new" truck for a lot less. That makes more sense to me...As of now it is worth very little. It would need to be restored. I thought maybe by spending like $3,000. on it. Then it should last quite a while...I am not a "car or truck" lover. To me either it runs or it doesn't....I don't care for fancy just functional....If I did fix it, it would be for the purpose of keeping it a very very long time.....What do you think?
