It's A Good Desperation Truck. — It was slow as hell, got horrible gas mileage, and had rust spots on it... For 500 bucks, I wasn't complaining that much. 4WD kicks ass too; I never went off-roading with it, but it was still a fun little piece of trash.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: If you absolutely need a cheap beat-um-up truck

Cons: It's horrible unless you need it

Fun Truck — it's been a good ol truck which I drove the crap out of. it's always ran and drove great whenever I needed it to. I've had a lot of fun in this truck, and it was hard to park it, but I had to for my dad to let me drive my Suburban.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: fun!

Cons: gas mileage, and the window motor in the tailgate

Gmc Jimmy — Alright vehicle to drive. Was shaky when you got to high speeds though. I mostly liked it because my step father had one and I remember being raised with it. It was fun to learn how to drive a manual on it.

Pros: History

Cons: Shaky at high speeds
