Had the day off so hung out at my buddies shop, helped with some stereo work and admired just a part of his collection. Sorry bout the shitty bb pics.

His personal truck/hauler, a 05 duramax:

Nice toys. Not entirely sure what his plans for the Amphibicar are, considering how far we are from any big body of water. :dunno:
I guess you can get first dibs on Sikome lake before it opens to the public but...... :confused:

How much does he want for the 1500 SS? and any details? I may know a couple people that may be interested.

You should tell him to peel that vinyl off his duramax. That just kills it..
Would be a decent looking truck otherwise.
First guy I've ever seen into Javelin's. They're kind of the shy, red-headed step child of the muscle car world.

He has a cottage on the lake in little bow and a property on lake havasu.

I'm not a fan of the pin striping but he's big into it.

The SS is up for $16500.

^ lmao, he'd be lucky to get half that for it, even then..... What year is that anyway? '92? $16,500 is probably what that cost new.

A 454 SS isn't the same as a regular 90's half ton. I wouldn't be surprised if he got close to that for it. I wouldn't buy it for that because I have no use for it, but if I had one, I would't let it go for less either.

werd, don't ask for any less. 30,000 miles means you can ask whatever the hell you want for it and someone out there might just jump for it. haters gonna hate, but he has a mint one and you don't.

Sweet AMCs too.

Ok, thinking I know who this is; guy was the guru with AMC motors once upon a time... Helped me build the frankenmotor (used parts from 304/360/390/401s) for my Heep once upon a time...

Does he still have that sleeper AMC eagle wagon - with the seriously worked over 390/401 under the hood?

Nope, no sleeper amc wagon. He used to own a custom truck shop and sold a few years ago. He's not just into AMC, it's just whats in the shop now.

People are asking $15000 for similar trucks with much higher miles and worse shape. Buddy goes to Barret jackson and scoops cars yearly, has 6 or 7 other classics in his collection and sells tons. I'm sure he knows what it's worth. I wouldn't pay $1000 for any urs4, but theres a market for them and I know that a perfect condition with super low km would fetch big bucks, same goes with this truck.

Aww... did I hit a funny bone there? Did I insult your car too? or just standing up for your buddies? Thats funny, you dont even know what I drive, but okay. A hot rod truck You've never seen (along with another truck I've never even mentioned), same with the car... but okay. :rolleyes: About the only thing on this forum that I have pics of is the bike... thats it.
To be sure, thats not worth $1k either. :thumbsup:

You didn't get my point. I'm not insulting you and I like your bike. I also remember you (I think it was you anyways) talking about a saturn aura, which I didn't insult.

What I was trying to get at is that different people have different tastes and while this may not be your cup of tea other people may appreciate it. I was comparing it to a urs4 because while I don't like them personally I know that there is a market for them and a mint one would fetch big $.

btw, I drive a dodge and a kawi so you didn't insult me.

wtf is wrong with you? all the trucks mentioned are the same and pictured in this thread

I apologize. Seemed like that was a jab right at me.

:dunno: Sorry I take that back 100%. :thumbsdow
About the only thing I was poking fun of were the hot pink strips on buddies Duramax, not at all the truck it self.

Wanting in the mid teens for a 20 year old half ton (regardless of KM's or rarity) seems a bit asinine. Perhaps to some thats justified, but I'd much rather get a stepside Chevy 1500 from the southern states and toss a LS2 (& either a T56 Borg warner or an 4L60 in there) and pocket about $6k, meanwhile saving out the ass in fuel costs. :dunno: (to ME at least) $15k for that is crazy. Unless a persons sole intent was to put it in a collection; for performance I can think of a dozen better ways to spend that kind of coin.
No offense given or taken either way. :)
