2016 Silverado, I striped it myself.



When I got this truck, I leased it (6/16) because I couldn't afford the high payment ($235 vs. $580). The lease is up now (6/19) and I decided to buy it out. It gets around 20 mpg, has only 16k on the clock and is only costing me about a $100 more a month plus they thru in a "9" year warranty. Thank god, everything I looked at around here has over 125k on the odos and a lot are really beat. I don't want to spend my retirement wrenching on 1 car every other day, I gots ridin' to do!

I didn't fund it, but it may as well be mine.
