One of the vehicles that Dan bought was a red 96 Ford F-150. He bought it from his son. He really liked that pickup. I on the other hand had great difficulty reaching the pedals. I don't think I ever drove it. Dan bought it in Feb 2010 and sold in June of 2011.
In April of 2011 Dan bought a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 with an 8 foot box. When he was negotiating for it the sale price came down to $4,000 with the red pickup as the trade in. I checked the Kelly Blue Book and decided it was priced way over value.
The salesman brought up NADA on the computer and showed a different base price. We offered $4000 cash no trade in. We finally bought it for $5000 no trade in.
Prior to buying the pickup my sister-in-law had driven by the car lot and saw a green pickup in the front row. She told me later she had wondered if Dan had seen. Not only had he seen it, but that is the one he bought.
We had planned to list the red pickup on Craig's list and sell it ourselves. I procrastinated. Finally a month or so later. Dan said, "I think I will keep the red pick up instead of selling it."
I figured he was giving me a bad time because I hadn't done anything about it.
So I promptly went out took some pictures and posted it on Craig's List. The pick up sold for $2000 within 24 hours. Dan still says he should have kept it.
