I myself dont look at what i got into it verses what its worth. You could do that with any vehicle. You could get your nice rig as you say but sooner or later it will be a money pit too. I have 2 blazers and will keeper them both until im no longer here anymore.. Long story short cars and trucks will cost you money. They all do.

truck 2200
brakes+misc repairs 250
tires 500
stereo repair 300
transmission 2950
total: 6200
and probably another 1k to fix the electrical, A/C, rear brakes... that much money can buy you a great RIG!!!!
I hear ya. My 1999 Blazer takes much more attention than the 82 Prelude. Then again I ask much more of the Blazer than the Prelude. (The Prelude would not be the best rig for elk season!) However, if I had the money, I'd be tempted to get a 4-Runner but even a 10 y.o. example of one of those is over $10,000. For the time-being the Blazer is fitting my needs and is not breaking the bank. It was what I could afford when I got it about 10 years ago and for the foreseeable future will probably work reasonably well for me.

LOVE the Zr2.. How I would love to own one of those again. I had a 99 back in the day. Miss that truck. If I bought a new truck right now it would be the exact same truck!

Keep us posted with your impressions of your new rig. I wish they sold an SUV version of the Colorado but alas, that is only for Australia.
