I have been needing to get a vehicle for some time now, and if I hopefully get a job this month, I will go ahead and buy a good used vehicle. I really want a truck, but would settle for a car if that would be the best thing to do. Here's the truck I was looking at. Its a 1988 Ford f150 6 cyl. 4x4 with 122,735 miles on it, and manual transmission. They are wanting $3500 for it, but I could probably talk them down some. What do you guys think? Will it kill me on gas? (I basically plan on going only to work/class in it). My last vehicle was a 2003 Ford Focus, so gas really wasn't a huge problem. Would I be better off getting something like that again? Thanks in advance.
