For reference, that white dodge of mine (96 3/4 4x4 V10, 115k miles) was $5k. The deals are out there, if you look enough.
I would agree with Jason on the way people tread company vehicles. I know our guys at work beat the living piss out of every vehicle and piece of equipment we have. I wouldn't wish for anyone to own our stuff after we've had it.
