I'm picking up a 98 Suburban(Not 100% but most likely) Now this is the vehicle I want I've decided, not necessarily this one but the model. (Gas isn't so bad anymore right now and keeps slowly going down, at least where I am, ATM so inb4 gas prices), but a bit newer(Maybe 03ish) would be nice, but of course being just out of high school this is all I can afford. Now I looked at a few other trucks, one that was mostly after market engine parts and it ran so smooth but the dealer wanted a lot for it (It was a lot older 93 so I didn't want to bother paying 8.5 grand for it) I really liked what the previous owner had done to it though. I'll be buying a new vehicle soon regardless because my current one's problems cost more than buying another vehicle the same year.
So now I want your guys opinions(preferably if you were once in the same delema) should I go ahead a work on this 98(Or lets say any vehicle between 94-98 because this isn't a for sure) which is something I can afford right now, or save for something around a 03 or so? I like this 98 Suburban(Its pretty solid sun roof, 4x4, all options ect.) but I don't know if such an older vehicle is worth the work? I would really like to do some work on it but I don't wanna put to much money into it if its better to wait and buy something newer?
