    For shits and grins, what do you guys think a mint '90 with 49K is worth ? I do mean mint, factory tires and all original everything. Not that I would sell it for less than a South Pacific Island. It ain't a '91, but its still extinct.

    I looked at a 90 around here(albany NY) the guy wanted 8,300 but went down to 7,700. the truck was very nice, lifted 4" 35" tires, every option. but had 136,000 and smoked out the right exaust pipe. its not there now, someone bought it.

    your right. I don't understand the jeep thing!

    I think you neglected to adjust for mileage.

    A three year old Yuppie Mobile Tahoe goes for more than that.

    a three year old tahoe is seven years newer than your K5, and has the next generation of technology for the masses. the K5's are either cheaper than a new SUV, or wheelers want them. in which case the mint condition won't mean as much to them as to you.
    what you want is someone thats been wanting a mint blazer with all options.
    what options, by the way?

    Around here, $8000 would be top dollar for that truck.

    Yeah, I would say no more than $8K, that is at the very most. It does sound like a nice truck though, but for being 10 year old, that still is a lot of money.

    It's worth more than 8k, but nobody would pay more than that. Like a post before this one said, mainly us ol' rednecks want K5's (some words were changed around [​IMG]). If someone wanted a nice SUV they would buy one much newer for close to the same as you would ask for that one. It is a sweet blazer though.

    For Delta9 : Preferred Equipment group (Silverado, A/C, rear seat, tilt wheel, cruise, power windows & locks, deep tinted glass, aluminum wheels, sliding quarter window, am/fm cass, fuel tank shield, auto hubs, BEL SS mirrors), 4 speed OD trans, trailering special package, 31" tires, locking rear diff, 31" spare, electric remote exterior mirrors, 3.42 axles. (Reading it off the sticker, all its missing is dual front shocks). BTW, the 3.42 gears would not have been my first choice, I bought this truck off the lot. Whoever ordered it changed his/her mind, whatever. I fell in love with it and had to have it.

    I agree with delta9. Most trucks that year model are going to end up in the woods sooner or later and its hard for the working man to pay that when he can get one a little more built for less money. 7000 max I would think but thats just my opinion and hey I could be wrong.

    Besides I would rather have an older truck that you still can work on and don't have to go to school to learn how to blink at the computer only to have it blink back. I will take precomputer anytime. Only time I go to the dealer is to buy the parts that only they can sell...how I hate to hear..Sorry man that is a dealer part...

    I assume, perhaps wrongly, you think Tahoes are more "built" than K5s. Tahoes were designed and built for Yuppies and Dinks (double income, no kids). In my opinion, virtually any K5 can take a brandy new Tahoe for a drag around the block backwards ( I advise reversing the child seat in the Tahoe before doing this). Newer isn't necessarily better. Take an air chisel to a Tahoe and the top comes off, then simply silly putty it back on (Play-Dough will suffice in a pinch). This is the jist of my hypothetical question...a K5 is worth far more than a Tahoe with identical mileage to those who know better.

    Well, around here, mint doesn't mean anything to the guys looking to buy a K5. It just means you don't have much rust to replace. You could ask for the loan value around here, and you might get that much. And if you wouldn't sell it for even "twice that", then you wouldn't sell it around here.
