Good deal or no

I hardly ever drive my cavalier anymore, it gets about the same mileage as my cougar does, and the cougar has working AC, is more comfortable, and awesome tunes.

Im thinking about trading it for a 1994 F150 Straight 6 Auto. The tranny was replaced 6 months ago and the rest of it only has 100k on it. Anyways, heres a couple pics:






1997 Mercury Cougar XR7 Sport 4.6L
P.I. Intake, Mustang T/B and Upper Plenum,B&M Heavy Duty Trans Cooler, Trans Temp Gauge, A/F Ratio Gauge, K&N Cone Filter, Air Silencer Delete, 50% Front 20% Rear Tint, A&A Fiberglass GFX Kit, Xenon Front Clip, Magnaflow High Flow Cats

2001 Nissan Altima GXE Limited Edition

Daily Driver, 38mpg!

If you can trade a cavalier straight-up for that truck, absolutely do it. The 300" straight-six is one of the most durable engines ford ever made. People don't change engines in those trucks, they change trucks around those engines! If you didn't have another car as a daily driver, then the gas would hurt you, but since you have the cougar, I say buy the truck. At least it's useful, whereas a cavalier really has nothing going for it.

-91 Cougar LS, coming soon, complete overhaul with a 427" Windsor.
-90 XR7 5-speed black on black w/sunroof, MP2, coated rotors, double intercooler, 15%OD, ported heads, comp stage 1 cam, 85mm TB, 90MM LMAF, 80# injectors, and ported big valve heads
-98 Mark VIII LSC, Procharger P600b, TR3650 swap and 3.73s.
-90 SC Automatic rustbucket winter beater
-97 Tbird Sport 4.6 Nice weather daily driver

I just traded a 1979 Honda CM400T for a '93 F150 with the strait 6 and a manual tranny. I'm not looking back, that's for sure. And that was a bike, which doesn't compare in disposability to a Cavalier.

It would be easier for me just to throw my bike in the back of it and go mountain biking and so my g/f or some buddies can go too. Im gonna try to contact them this weekend, ive already sent an email.

I sent them an offer for my cavalier, I sent them pictures and everything saying ill trade even for it (they were offering their truck for $900, my the cavy was for sale for $1500) and this is the response I got back..

he said, no way.... thoes cars are junk!
So not to lower my maturity level any due to craigslist, I sent this response back.

Well I already have a buyer for it so thats not a problem. Do you still have the truck? Maybe we can set up a time and I can come look at it.
Some girl wants to buy my cavalier, she only had $1200 at the time and I wasnt going to take it for that considering theres nothing wrong with it other than it has a rebuilt title. I might offer it to her for like $1250 or $1300 if I like this truck.
