It's not just pickups, and it's not just old cars, literally everything has gone up over the last 10 - 11 months. Have you not seen the news reports on inflation? How much is gasoline in your area? How about steaks? There are still some bargains out there, but the vast majority of cars/trucks for sale are over priced right now, it's a sellers market. I suspect the bubble may burst by this spring, but time will tell, maybe it will take a little longer. In the meantime, now is not the time to be buying, unless you find a good deal, and/or you can afford to lose whatever you spend on it. Smart money would sell now, buy cheap later.
