NEW Truck

Today we went out and got a new truck! 2012 Chevy Silverado, sexy as hell, and rides like a dream! It's my dad's and it's his first ever new vehicle. It was worth a big chunk of change so it took some coaxing to get him to actually leave with it but we convinced him. He has wanted a truck for a very long time and he had all the money, in cash, so he wouldn't have to worry about any loans. It is a really nice truck and now he has something to haul around his bobcat and do some work on the side with it. For the past couple years he has been driving my '95 Blazer which has over 300,000 miles on it. It's not going to last much longer and he works hard and definitely deserved to get something nice for himself for once. I'm happy for him! =]
However, as soon as we got home he started picking at every little detail of the truck. Small scratches on the bed and hood, hail damage? Now he is second guessing his purchase, thinking he paid too much for something with a few aesthetic imperfections.  I'm not sure if he will end up keeping the truck or bringing it back. I understand a little bit of buyers remorse. My dad has always been stingy, never wanting to spend a lot of money on anything. This is a good quality, at times, but he does need this truck, and he has wanted one for a long time. Sometimes you just have to go for the things you want and allow yourself to be happy about it. In the long run, this truck will pay for itself and he needs to think about that.
