The first (and only) vehicle I've ever owned was a maroon 2000 Chevy s10 with an extended cab and a camper.
It looked exactly like this but with a camper (of course).
I got it new and drove it for a few years. I had sex in the back of it only once (it was awful) and put a ton of miles on it. I moved to San Francisco in 2003, where parking is notoriously bad. I easily spent $5k in tickets and getting it out of tow because of tickets and eventually just let the city take it. I called when I got the boot and when I asked how much it would cost to get it freed, the woman told me, "I don't have time to do the math, but it's around $5k." I called my mom to tell her that I was losing the truck and she decided to call them to get a solid number because the car was still worth more than that in Kelly Blue Book. She calls me back and says "5 thousand, 3 hundred, and 85 dollars."
I never got another car in the city, because really it's just a huge pain in the ass unless you want to pay $300 a month to rent someone's parking garage.
Anyway, R.I.P. Maroon Chevy s10.
