Pick-Up Prices

Just read in this morning's paper; average price of a new pick-up is $46,517. That's a lot of scratch!

I borrowed 50k in 1997 to build a 2300 sq ft. house
with an attached 2 car garage.

That is more than I paid for my first two houses... combined!

Trucks ain't cheap, which is why I don't buy them new, but keep them until they fall apart! Newest truck on the property is a 2003 F150 with 248,000 miles on it, paid for. The oldest is a 1947 Chevy 1.5 ton and we have no clue how many miles are on it.

I actually bought new because the used trucks were keeping their value. Was looking for a 2-3 year old truck... For $4000 more I got a brand new one with zero miles and full factory warranty and a lower APR than buying used.

All the used ones at the time were averaging 20k+ miles a year based on their age. Ridiculous.

Five years later my truck private sales for only $6k less than I bought it for. That is the upside... and I plan on keeping it for as long as she'll run.

It's true, trucks can be dolled up to reach hefty price tags.

But on the other hand, trucks can be equipped and priced in such a fashion that they are the most amazing $value when compared to other vehicles.

Example: A new F150 in crew-cab, XLT trim, 302A package (sweet stuff), smaller ecoboost 375lb and 325hp, Sport console.

In Texas that truck can be bought for $30-31k

There are Honda Civics that cost more than that!



In my opinion, the 3 American truck manufacturers are building the most amazing trucks ever.

And if you can just avoid most of the whipped cream luxuries, they are SO much vehicle for the money!



Having said all that, I keep most of my trucks too. I'd rather give them to a family member than trade them for a painful (depreciated) price.

Every time I get one, some grandkid or nephew takes dibs on it.

I think what gets most of us old geezers is we remember when pickups cost less than $10k. I remember buying a brand new 1978 F250 Camper Special for work, it cost $7800, and was well equipped. I bought my first house that year too, it was about double what the truck cost. So I guess things haven't changed too much, just the numbers have gotten bigger.

Yea, I remember what it felt like when my grandpa reached in his pocket and said "let's see what I got in here for ya"



He'd hand me a dime. Or a QUARTER!!!

Oh the purchasing power he just bestowed on me!



My grandkids would stare at me in disbelief if it were a coin. Lol

My grandmother sent me $5 for my birthday every year, all the way up until the year she died. I was in my 40's! :lol

X2... When I was young I was excited to get the $5, as I grew older I appreciated her card.
