    about two friends who each had come into $10,000.  One spent his on a truck.  The other used his as a down payment on a house.  The rest is easy to figure out.

      I think the truck might be the better bet now.  At least you can use it to drive to work or earn money doing odd jobs.  And put a cap on it and sleep in it for a lot less than the house.
