Thinking of buying a 2000 SS

Hello, I don't post much here but I read all of your post and I need advice. Right now I own a 2002 Silverado with only 33K miles. I saw a 2000 convertible Camaro SS at a dealer for sale at $16,900 with 44K miles. I am
kind of scared to make the switch seeing as there is nothing wrong with my truck and I drive 50 miles a day for work. The Camaro would become my daily driver. The dealer would give me 3 year 45K mile warranty. The car is also out of state so I would have to deal with the hasle of titleing the car, inspecting and taxes in my state. Is this werth the trouble? I haven't even seen the car it's 1 1/2 away from me..

If you buy a truck, there's a reason for it. You can't tow or haul much with an F body.
I'd keep the truck and buy something a little older where you can afford to keep both going.

Good advice Joe but for one thing... these days lots of people buy trucks who really DON'T have a reason to. At least not the kind of practical reasons you are thinking of. For a lot of folks these days, it's just about driving something "big and tough".
Not saying that's this guys situation but, judging by the way he is ready to just switch over it just might be.

True, but why buy a truck when a muscle car will wipe it out, be faster, and hold its resale value over the course of 35 years :)?
Me personally? I don't drive what I can't afford.
Bottom line: If your Firebird is your only car, you can't afford it. Period. An F body is simply not practical as an everyday car in most cases. It's a weekend car.

Sorta true. If you live where there's no snow and don't have kids I see no reason why you couldn't drive one year round. Rent a truck when you need to haul stuff. I only get to enjoy my F's for 6 months then I drive a winter beater. (the price to pay for owning three F-Bods.)

and
Period. An

weekend
When I first got my 85 T/A, unless I was going to haul something heavy, I drove it just about everywhere. The exception is when it rained. Then I drove something else. First month I put 2,000 miles on it.
The few times I drove it in the rain I got caught by surprise. Now 2nd gen cars unless very wild built, do good in nasty weather. 3rd & 4th Gen's don't. Charles My new flavor of the month is speed rated for 140 MPH.
