    Its been my understanding that good pickups are very easy to sell.  We had an old Ford Ranger too - my husband called it the Home Depot truck - that our yard guy asked about buying every few months.  I finally convinced my husband to let me sell it to him and he's used it for his yard maintenance business since.

    •  In that kind of truck, there are two types. (12+ / 0-)

      The $500 truck and the $1,500 truck.  That tidbit came from my banker many years ago.  This old Ford Ranger was a $500 truck. The hood was rusted all the way through in places and there was rust all around the bottom of the body from years of road salt.  Engine had been replaced with a used engine from the junkyard about 15 years ago when the original engine developed a bad bearing and it was cheaper to replace than to fix.  I told the guy who bought it that the hood could be replaced for about $150 or less, according to the auto body shop just down the road from my house.  

      I am just glad to get it out of the driveway and not have to pay insurance on it any more.
