But S10's are so much fun, and yours is in great shape!

I've forgotten what the other two cars are I"m afraid, can you remind me?

S10's are valuable rides now, it should bring a fair amount of coins when/if you do sell it.

04 Avalanche and 94 Olds Cutlass convertible.

I intend to give the olds to my parents. I've been kinda thinking about getting a Chevy Sonic. I don't need two trucks.

The S10 is showing signs of problems though. The hood has lost its sheen. It has a salvage title so the repaint on the hood might be fading. It has two rust holes in the bed (about the size of a nickel), and one of the fender flares is cracked.

I forgot entirely about the Olds, and should have recalled the Avalanche, doh!

Yeah the Sonic is an OK runabout coupe, especially in LT trim, with good mileage too. The turbo one is funner by a lot, but the extra complexity of the turbo plus the hit in the MPG (and wallet) may not be worth it.

Test drive both and see which one you prefer...

I've discovered that the best plan for buying a late model GM is to wait a few years. They lose over half their value. Like our Avalanche was $58k when it was brand new (They still had the original sticker) but we bought it in 06 and it was down to $24k. It didn't have a ton of miles on it, I don't remember what it was, but in the 10 years we've had it, it still only has 56k miles on it.

Amen to that.

Something around 3 year old at 50% off? Heck yeah :D
