I like that my 2007 Ford Ranger is paid for and has less than 70K miles on it.
70k? Dang! I’ll give $1,500 for it.
My white 1995 Toyota Tacoma SR5 has 309,000 miles on it. How much will you give me for it?
I've got 35 cash money on me right now. It's a good deal, really.
I put few miles on it these days as I rarely drive up to Phoenix. So the 2004 motor I had put in it is doing really well and I recently recharged the A/C and with a new "o" ring. The Michelin tires I've had for several years have good tread still and are shaded most of the day. No cracking. This truck is still a keeper. I was just jive talkin'

I had one of these when I lived in Silverton:

‘64 GMC V6 that had been a Forest Service truck.
Man, I hauled a lot of fire wood in that thing.

I sold it to a friend, Mike White, who owned a trash hauling service named, no kidding, “White Trash.”

I’ve been driving Jeep Cherokees ever since.
US Forest Service trucks rock!

No sale. I plan on being buried in it.
A lot of caskets are more than $1,500.
This one is already paid for.

So there.

Just make sure there's enough gas left in the tank or they'll have to call AAA for a tow

My sales manager slammed a deer coming into work the other day. It will cost more to fix it than he wants to spend. Said he will sell it to me for $1000.

I really hope the new Jeep truck comes out next year. It was scheduled for a 2018 release but was delayed. The new/next Wrangler (JL) production has been moved to the Toledo North plant and the South plant was shut down in April '18 to retool for this new truck. The retooling is supposed to take 6 months but I bet it's longer. That plant was a little behind in technology and I hear that FCA is taking the opportunity to really upgrade the facility to make it more flexible moving forward.

It's gonna be 'spensive whenever it finally hits the lots. Like $45,000 expensive. That's not out of line with the Raptor or many other full-sized trucks but dayum, that's a lot of dough. I suspect they'll hold their value at least as well as the 4-door Wrangler JKU's do so they'll still be north of $35,000 when they're five years old.

My wife told me this morning she would like a truck or a Jeep next. She has had larger SUVs for several years now.

Just got off the wireless with The Impudent.
He said it would be unlikely that any of us would be able to pick up a truck, whether it were a pickup or a flatbed.

And yes, being the Impudent, he still insists on using the subjunctive.

It is a verb “mood.”

“The subjunctive in English is used to form sentences that do not describe known objective facts, rather, such things as wishes or hypothetical suppositions...”

In this case, whether it “were” instead of the vernacular “was.”

Don’t blame me.

It was The Impudent.
