I was all in until I saw the wonky muffler. Bearings must be gone.

The first picture seems very familiar, there was one for sale last year for around 100k with about 2,500 miles

Wait, was that a real ad!? I saw that yesterday & immediately wrote it off as a scam.

Let me get this straight. Last time this truck was on eBay (maybe 2 months ago?) it had a reserve of $90k in California and Horsey you just bought it for $17k in Colorado????

It has 10x the miles it had the last time it was for sale, so it has depreciated quickly. This will be my DD.

Nice take Josh. I'm sure you've already ordered the tan top for it.

The fact that a blatant scam is still questioned even after Josh joked that he bought it shows why these keep popping up in various forms daily because they work at fooling many people into thinking they might be true.

The pics were from the original legit ad of a creampuff low mileage ad which Josh linked to. That and a one sentence ad with no phone number didn't seem strange? Not to mention the oh $40-50K discount from what it should sell at...na no red flags there

I always get a kick out of the sellers diction on these vehicles.

a perfect condition of 1997...


... the car has been driven only for maintenance



I only drive my cars to get the oil changed as well!
