Someone wanted to buy my truck

I was standing behind the counter at the gas station where I work part time when a guy in his late 40's came in. I was ringing up customer so he waited for me to get done and then he asked me:

'Hey, do you want to sell your ford Ranger?'
I said, 'What?'
He repeated, 'Do you want to sell your Ranger?'
I said, 'No. There's no way I'm getting rid of my truck. I love it.'

I should have asked me how much he'd give me for it, but I didn't. He walked out less happy then when he walked in. Made me feel good anyway.

Just thought I'd share.

I wouldn't get rid of mine for anything. It's got a good bit of sentimental value to it that no other truck could have. My grandmother bought my truck for me and she died a few years ago so...

I had a guy offer to trade 3 fullsize trucks for my ranger once, all the trucks were as new as mine, I told him 'No.'

Mainly because the truck is my first and it's 'my' truck, there's not another truck like it, not to me anyway.

The fact that the other trucks were Chevy's also played a part in it. lol

I'm glad someone pointed that out.

I realized how much I'd miss my truck if I let it go. I was going to trade it in, but now I decided that my down payment on a new car is lift money!

If someone who REALLY wanted the B4K offered me anything more than $3,500, I would take it. Because I will never get anything more than that if I sell it to the average Joe.


Then it'd be time for my 5.0 Explorer

It is a good feeling when someone asks you if your vehicle is forsale. Had the same thing happen to me with my old 69 F100. Told him no. Then I ended up selling it 4-6 months later.

When I was building the motor for my Ghia, had a guy pull up in the driveway and offer me 3k for the rolling chassis. I said heck no, I need something to put this motor in! Sold that thing for 4200 with a blown stocker motor in it a couple of months ago. Now building a '63 Ghia.

Somebody on here offered me $800 for my truck as is.

I told him $2500, to which he loled.

Once it's fixed, the price goes back to $5K. I wouldn't sell it for less, and I don't want to sell it.

Who offered you $800?? I think $2500 is a little to much but $800 might be a little low.
