Newbie from New Jersey
Hello all! I hail from the center of the People's Republik of New Jersey.
I am about to be the proud owner of a used 1999 Chevy S10. (first car) I am buying it from my grandfather who has never really used it. In fact, this truck still looks like it just rolled off the factory floor! (almost). It only has 45k miles on it since he never drove it. He bought it from a friend years ago probably when it was 42-42k miles.
Everything is stock on it except for a new alternator, battery, 4 new tires, and A/C blowerfan (the mice really got inside there and made a nest when it sat unfortunately and it wrecked the old A/C blower motor)
Acceleration is a bit rough at times, and it isn't a 4x4, some busted parts here and there.. but it still has low mileage and gets good mpg. All i need for college. I'll try to rehab her back to health :D
Looking forward to being on the forums more often and talking to everyone
