    I'd like to get opinions on the 1st Gens. General problems, MPG, cost of ownership, experiences etc. I've owed a 2nd Gen for a little while and then picked up a Terminator which I currently have but I have always liked the 1st Gens and I'm thinking of picking one up for my daily driver. I don't commute very far for work and I'm also not planning on modifying the truck since the cobra takes up most of my time and money. What can i expect for under $10,000?

    Cheers!

    Hi I am new to this forum. Been meaning to join for a wile now. I been daily driving my 1994 lighting for 5 years now 192k and still a blast to drive!
    To answer your questions Keep your foot out of it and you will get about 10mpg city otherwise you will spend a not in gas. you may buy rear tires from time to time.... and I never had to do anything but oil changes and gas. Best car/truck I ever owned hands down. Also I am not easy on my cars at all.

    It's a much tighter cabin than a Gen2.
