Silverado — very nice silverado. this is a mark industries custom. i traded this with the '96 t-bird when we bought ourselves a house. i used this chevy as a daily driver and i hauled cargo with it. the 350tbi engine was awesome. with overdrive tranny and 3.55:1 rear it launched like crazy and had top speed of 200kmh (120mph). nice surprise for ricers. had to sold it to get the '76 t-bird

Pros

Bought it for $300, came with 31X10.5 R15, had leaf springs and a rear differential from a full size van. Replaced the bench seat with 89 camaro bucket seats.

Cons

Reliable enough that there were none in the junkyard for interior parts or a used tailgate.... needed some interior parts and a tailgate. The 31s made city driving bad on gas but amazing on the highway, but I didn't care about the gas mileage. RUST!!!!!

Love At First Burnout. — Loved it. Not a single complaint. Paid $300 put about $800 into it and it ran great until I was cut off and t-boned a car. The stars I gave it were for the truck as it was not a comparison to any other vehicle.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

I Love It And Will Never Get Rid Of It — The performance is good but needs work. It has needed mulitple repairs but is running good currently. The paint is getting faded and chiped and their are some dents but still looks great. It is so much fun to drive, sounds and looks great.

Pros

Fun driving a fast truck that's pretty much unstoppable.

Cons

Not the safest truck to drive in winter!

35

In Its Current Condition, $4,000 — For a pretty much stock truck may be the coolest vehicle I may ever own. Haven't had to do anything to this truck even after 110,000. Acceleration is great 0-60 in around 4.5 sec with TBI but should be amazing with multi point FI someday. Braking isn't bad, could use rear disc kit, handling is awesome, truck just hugs the ground, could be better with rear sway bar. These trucks are bullet proof and built very strong. Appearance never gets old but could use a few updates like shaved handles, tailgate and gas tank door, maybe a 4-4-2 style cowl hood. Interior is ok, needs a few updates. My plan is just to rebuild everything someday and make this my daily driver for summer.

Pros

good starting point for a performance truck

Cons

MPG

65

You Buy A 454 Ss, You Get A 454 Ss — Everyone thinks this truck was fast but it wasn't. Well it beat alot of cars/trucks, but that isn't saying much. MPG was the reason it went bye bye. This truck was fun only because of the 400+ FT torque. Not a good daily driver!!!! YES I pulled my race car with this truck!

Defentally The Standard Of Trucks. — Chevy 350ci, good strong. Aftermarket interior package done. Made the interior much nicer than stock. Very nice ride for a truck. But Chevy allways did have the lead on that. Easy to work on and find parts for. Makes it nice to find for economic repairs.
