Question What to get next..

well guys and gals.. my truck is totaled.. I have four vechiles in mind and just want to see what you all think.. it is between a Excursion, F-250, Camaro SS, or a GTO.. and yes both the Ford's would have to be a diesel... I am sure I know which two will come out ahead in the poll but I am just wondering what you all really think... thanks

Well before I vote......did you use your truck as a truck or just to haul azz and second question have you ever had a Camaro Z28 or SS before?

Well I've always been a truck guy and I always needed a truck, but if the chance came for me to get a SS I would have......but then again the prices for them are kinda high, so you might want to get another truck or the X and wait till the 2009 Camaro comes out and the prices for the 02 and older will drop like rocks.........I don't care for the GTO

well I have already found a 2002 SS for $17,000 and only 48,000 miles... and that is alot cheaper than any of the other vechiles... so I am really leaning towards that way kinda.. cheaper payments but still alot of fun

i voted for the f-250, cause I am a truck guy, and will ALWAYS own a truck. I'll just get more doors when i have kids. however, the choice is yours. check out the pros and cons of owning each on of them.

well I really love all the trucks I have ever owned... but as for the kid thing well by time I would have any kids I would be able to pay off what ever by then.. and then maybe get a 6.4L

I have a buddy who had a Midnight Blue SS, he put 07 Z06 wheels on it, it had SLP everything, long tube headers, loud mouth exhaust, intake, cam, lifters, programming, and a race ready 6 speed with some stage 3 race clutch.....man that thing was sweet and FAST.....I'd go SS if you don't need a truck.....you can have your fun for a while and turn around and sell it and get a F250 later
