My wife (Steel Duck) and I are going through this debate right now. Do we let her 15 yr old son drive her '97 Camaro V6 convertable? It' runs and looks great even with 119,000 miles. Or the '97 Blazer? 123,000 miles and starting to show. Then there's my '99 Z-28 that I bought new . . .with only 40,000 miles we wont even go there!
We where thinking of a small truck Dodge Dakota or S-10. Something that would handle the abuse.
Maybe I should start looking at 93 Tempos.
