So I bought my truck this past Friday for only $500. she has 192,303mi. on her. the guy wanted $750 but it didn't take any haggling to get him down. After an hour at the DMV and a few minutes at State Farm, it was officially mine and legal and good to go.
What I've done so far:
changed out vacuum lines
changed air filter
new spark plugs(had 2 dif. kinds, 2 weren't screwed in and 3 wires weren't even connected)
changed some blown fuses
