Retire the S-10

I decided it was time to retire my 1993 S-10 Blazer. It had over 250,000 miles on it and was really showing its age. It was still a reasonably solid truck but I would have had to dump a considerable amount of money into it to make it worthy (by my standards) for continued duty. What it really came down to was after spending a ton of money on it I would still have a mini-SUV. Let's face it - every home owner with a little DIY in his blood needs a pick-up truck at one point or another. Not being the kind of person who likes to rely on friends to provide for my heavy-hauling needs, I decided it was time to go truck shopping!

After a brief (and somewhat lucky) search, I found a great truck at a little car dealership in Twin Lake, MI called MD Auto. Typical used car dealer but I certainly wouldn't call them sleazy. They met my two criteria: they had a vehicle I wanted and were willing to deal. And deal I did! When it was all said and done I was pretty pleased with the overall package.
