My father bought me my first vehicle six years ago when I was a sophmore in high school. When I realized I could not afford my dream car, which was a mustang, I soon turned to trucks. My dad’s accountant was ready to get rid of his 1999 F-150 and buy a new one. Well we ended up buying the truck for about 6,500 and it has lasted me all throughout high school and four years of college! The other day I offered to drive myself and my boss to lunch. After riding down the road, he asked me how old my truck was. I had told him, “it’s a 1999.” He was shocked to find that it was that old and followed up with comments like, “It runs like it’s brand new!” I plan on keeping my F-150 even after I buy a new 2011 Mustang after graduation!
