What would you all recommend for an affordable vehicle that could also be a good first vehicle for a kid?

Right now our daughter and I are slowly, slowly working on rebuilding a '67 250 bike for us to scoot around on but we need a truck now in a serious way. Having a bike as well will really help.

If anyone has any recommendations for one or both. Thanks for your time and attention. I really appreciate it.

A work truck should be reliable and repairable.

The F150 is so common that parts are available for every model year, going way back. Plus instructional books and videos. And people with experience.

That's what I'd do.
