Free vehicle investment advice

I bought my neighbor’s 1993 Toyota pickup truck three years ago with 80,000 miles on it for $2,000.

I washed and waxed the truck yesterday.  I put “For Sale” on it this evening at 7 p.m.  The truck was sold at 9 p.m. with 151,000 miles on it for $1,900.  In my book, that’s an awesome sale.  I’m happy that I got good money for my little truck but I’m kind of sad because of all of my vehicles, that was a damn good truck and probably my favorite.  I’m going to miss it.

Now the gauntlet has been dropped… I’m in vehicle selling mode.  Next on my hit parade is Elise’s Jeep.  I think some tears will fall after that sale.

  1. Wow, Josh!! Great job. Other than gas, tires and other consumables, you hardly spent any money for maintenance either. Very few people can claim such efficiency in their vehicle purchases.

  2. That makes me feel better knowing I have a 2002 Tundra. Hopefully I can get a similar trade value whenever I decide to part with it.
