Before there was such things mandatory backup cameras, side impact air curtains and the other dumbshit car makers are REQUIRED to put on a car, you could buy a good truck for $15,000.$60k for a fucking pickup truck? Jeebus, what does a 2020 truck have that a 2014 or so doesn't?
My first car was a Toyota Tacoma, shit ran just just fine.
I remember around the year 2000, I paid $9,999 cash for a brand new, strip down Ford Ranger. It would not go faster than 90 MPH on the highway, had slow acceleration, came with a manual 5 speed stickshift, guzzled gas and drove over curbs with no hesitation at all. I paid $500 extra to have a tinted sliding rear window installed.
After a year I got bored with it and traded it in for brand new Mazda Miata.
