I was 30 years old and my dad bought me this truck for $7500 cash brand new.
I've put 600,000 miles on it.
I'm 52 now and feel old but this truck does not (feel old).
Runs absolutely perfect.
I've changed the oil in it around 90 times.
The odometer quit about 11 years ago, the muffler 8 years ago and the windshield wipers about 9 years ago.
I've had 7 windshields, 3 clutches, a water pump, s-belt, several fuel filters, and a couple of brake jobs.
No power steering.
Electrical system is pretty messed up.
Gauge lights unreliable. Windows can barely get rolled up or down.
Major sun cracked dashboard.
Truck runs perfect.
Cost me nothing, basically, for 22 years.

I bought this truck for $750 in 07.
At the time the truck had just turned over to 200,000 miles.
I currently have 209,000 miles on it and I am sure it will go a lot farther.
This truck is not my daily driver.
It is used for camping, hauling kayaks, moving mulch, dirt, furniture, etc.
It often sits for a month without being started but always fires up right away and does whatever I ask of it.
This truck has been a great investment for me.
It serves my purposes and is very utilitarian.
I have had many people offer to take it off my hands.
The only maintenance I have done is some exhaust work, one brake line, a and a fuel line.
Cost was not more than $450.
Truck is 25 yrs old in 2 mo

Amazing little truck. I have had this rig for 16 years and it was already 5 when I bought it. 1989 Nissan standard pickup. It has 225,00 miles on it, been up and back the Alcan twice, driven all over the NW in places most folks use 4x4. I have used it hard, put some dollars into it, and it just keeps on ticking. Starts no problem in well below zero Montana winter. The body is going to rust, but the motor will run forever and ought to be sent to Peru to grind corn or something.
