My truck was one of those great screamin deals you hear about but never believe actually happen. I saw it advertised in the local "Penny Pincher" at $4,500 o.b.o. by such-and-such a date. I really couldn't afford a whole lot, so I made a lowball offer of $2,000. It turned out that mine was the ONLY offer... Believe it or not, the guy was so desperate for money that he took it!
(Sorry it's so dirty in the pictures. I don't have a camera anymore since some lowlife stole mine!)
This was my daily driver. I bought it when I started leaving early for high school. I was originally looking at a '92 5.0 Mustang, but insurance was ridiculous, and 3 other people had one just like it. I wanted something different, something that would stand out. My mom ended up pointing the Elky out to me. At first I was a little reluctant, but I was glad I bought it. I had it for three years and the only thing I had to replace that was the radiator. It got around 14-15 mpg city and 24-27 mpg highway. Unfortunately, on August 26, 2008 I fell asleep behind the wheel and hit a tree around 50 mph, and I totalled it.
