Can an Old Truck be as Good as a New Truck with the Same Amount Invested?

When it comes time to figure out how you’re going to spend your money on a vehicle, there seems to almost be endless choices that you could make. One of the hardest potentially to decipher is if you’re going to purchase yourself a brand-new vehicle or buy something a little bit older that could save you a little bit of money. There’s definitely upside to each of these decisions, however, in your particular situation, it will be up to you to decide which is better for you. Depending on which road you go down, you’re breaking off a whole different set of circumstances for yourself that could end up paying off in the long run or potentially be hazardous.

In this one, we take a ride along with the guys over at TFLTruck as they give us the rundown on what exactly they have done to buy an old Chevrolet pickup truck and bring it up to speed to be on par with a new one. After they go through all of the expenses that they’ve incurred to get to the end product, they take the liberty of going through a new truck that ould cost about the same, figuring out exactly what they’ll be able to purchase if they instead decided to just dump all of that money into a newer vehicle. It’s definitely an interesting comparison to work with and one that I can see different consumers reacting to differently.

If you follow along below, you’ll be able to see exactly how the money here has been delegated and what you would get yourself if you decided not to go through the work and effort of fixing up something that’s older. After watching this one, would you rather get your hands on the newer trunk or take the path of fixing up the older truck into something that you could see yourself riding around in?
