Great Looking Old Chevy — My dream truck! Sure, it doesn't run right now, and it's in desperate need of some body work, but it's still gorgeous!! (Dents and scratches give it personality!!) It's got a new tranny, and we put a 4 inch lift on it last year. It's sitting on 35s. I put new Outlaw wheels on it, but they're starting to rust already. The interior if half-way restored. I've got a new sound system in there, but the truck leaks around the windshield. I'd like to finish restoring it in a few years.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's what I've always wanted!

Cons: It's a money pit..And it only gets 7mpg...

1972 Chevy C10 — I'm in the process of rebuilding it and i love how simple it is to work on. This era of trucks is by the best style of pickups ever built. Also it does have some accessories that make it easy to drive such as power steering, power brakes, sway bar, and coil suspension all the way around. Plus the 350s in these trucks are one of the best engines ever produced.

Pros: Everything!

Cons: None.

Bottom Line, I Love The 67-72 Model Year Chevy Trucks. This Is The Second One I've Owned. —

For being 41 years old, and getting parked in a shed with a dirt floor for 16 years of its life, this truck has really held up well. Sure, it has the usual rusted areas that all 67-72 Chevy trucks are infamous for, but it's all repairable. And it is still in better shape than the majority of 94-97 Dodge Rams that I have seen on the road. It has great performance characteristics for having nearly 100,000mi on a mildly hopped up 350. It starts on the first try every time, even in freezing cold temperatures. The acceleration is good for a 4200lb truck, it has no problem keeping up with Mustangs, Camaros, and rice burners. It has timeless styling. You can find styling cues from this truck in Dodge Rams, late 90's Chevy 1500's, and I've noticed similar body lines while looking at certain Ford trucks. Its fairly cheap to own. I've put more than 60,000 miles on it since I've owned it, and the most expensive part I've had to replace was the distributor. Fuel consumption is fair for a truck at 18 mpg. Just remember that it wasn't until just a few years ago that full sized trucks surpassed the 20 mpg mark. Saying this truck is fun to drive would be an understatement. With the factory sized 235/65 R15 rubber on the rear, smoking the tires is an everyday occurrence. That being said, the factory sized tires only last me about 800 miles before they look like street slicks. I remedied this by getting a pair of Good Year Wrangler size 31"x10.50". They are much more expensive, and slightly harder to spin.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: What I love about this truck is the way it sounds. With a slightly larger than stock cam, headers, flow master 40 series mufflers, and duel 2.5" pipes that dump into 24" long by 4" dia. stainless steel tips that exit right in front of the rear tires, it sounds like no other sbc I've ever heard.

Cons: The only thing I have to complain about is that it doesn't have enough power for my taste. But I have plans to build a 427c.i. bbc to take care of that problem. And as long as I find the right set of heads, I figure I'll get the same, if not better fuel mileage because it will be more efficient.
