    Great — The power and low cost to maintain is good for someone who loves power and has money for gas it has a strong body but has Manuel steering and brakes so is a little difficult to drive but is done with some work

    Pros: Its a classic Chevy with good amount of power

    Cons: fuel cost

    Handles Good With Plenty Of Power And Style. — This Truck has been in my Family since My Grandfather bought it brand new in 1971. It Passed from Sr. to Jr. to the III. It was a farm Truck for Years, and Served the purpose well. When I got it I rebuilt the Engine after Burning through alot of Oil, and even after 600K miles the Engine looked Brand New on the inside. Im Currently in the Process of Rebuilding it (Frame off Of Course.) Cant wait to get this Beauty back on the road where it belongs. I slightly modded the engine to Push 350HP, it still tows, but will pass almost anything on the road, but like others said, except a gas station.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: An excellent example of pure American Muscle

    Cons: None, This truck is a blast

    Lots Of Low End And Torque, As With Most Older Vehicles Not Much Top Speed. — love everything, 350 ci smallblock, tow package, needs a carb rebuild, have a different carb on it right now though, just want the original. mint condition, spins 'er tires very well. ajd will most likely pass everything but a gass station, hahaa amazing truck to drive,.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: very powerful

    Cons: nothing sucks about it.

    Onehellofaride — faster than hell until i dropped the drive shaft haulin cattle feed. it could use a bigger motor but overall the 350 in it does the job. it has an edelbrock 650 carb. and has dual flowmaster exhaust. it has stock rally rims...wide. tires....burned thru a few..... new breaks all around it isn't pretty but it sounds and runs good.it wasnt the greatest on gas but it would haul...my first car...one hellofaride by far. i would recommend this truck by far.

    Pros: power steering. 350 with mild cam.LOUD

    Cons: bad interior, needs paint, needs radio,

    I'm Proud To Own This — Its got all kinds of power, and i did all the engine work myself.I put a 292 in it and turbocharged it, I'm pushing about 400 horse power out of it. Its fun to drive and its hard not to light the tires. Its a never ending project of mine.

    Pros: Fun to drive

    Cons: easy to get in trouble with

    A Lifetime Project, Gramp's 1971 Chevrolet Truck — This has been under construction for quite a few years and will be until I get a higher paying job.

    Pros: I'd trust it to drive across country pulling a boat and with a motorcycle in the bed.

    Cons: 15 mpg on a good day.
