Well, at least for me it's new. It is very well used in fact, perhaps to the point of being abused. The picture looks a hell of a lot better than the reality.
But the price was right and the need for some kind of hauler was great after last year's demise of the Saturn wagon.
The particulars: F150, 1997, 4.6L V8, toodamnmanymiles, no visible leaks, fluids all looked clean, no obvious problems on the test drive, $ << BlueBook. It was that last parameter that finally triggered the deal. Other lesser items: nice bed liner, decent stereo, cloth interior, non-functional AC, and at least two bad tires.
Next up: trip to the tag office and inspection station this week, followed by a visit to the tire and mechanic shop. Wire in a CB next (no I'm not kidding) and it'll be good to go.
