Truck for My Soon to be Driving Son

January 7th, 2009 at 08:11 am

We have found a truck for my son. I think it is really good deal. It is a 1972 Chevrolet that is in pretty good shape. He would be able to pay cash for it with the money that his grandparents have loaned him(he would have to make a minimal payment to them each month). It is not final yet...my husband has to call to find out the details of the truck.

I am so glad that he decided on a different truck. My husband has a Ford truck(that he had when we married) that needs a transmission and has numerous other "little" problems. My son was set on fixing that truck and driving it. I have done my best to talk him out of it. I am not sure, but I think the wiring may be bad...just not the type of truck I want my son driving around for his first car(for safety) So he finally listened(not to me, but someone else of course) and agreed to purhase a different vehicle.

    We spent months looking for a bargain truck for our son when he was nearing time to go to college. In the end we upped what we were willing to pay in order to get airbags. Safety, yeah! It's a mom thing. But he liked it because with the airbags came a generally better truck.

    That is a good point about the airbags and I wish I could afford to do that. Unfortunately, there is no room for us to up what we can pay.

    Hope he gets the truck that will make everyone happy!

    you can use carfax.com to get a report on the truck. I am not sure if there is a fee or not but atleast you would know if it was involved in any major accidents
