    The Love Of My Life. — I first fell in love with the wide, intimidating grill & flashy color. Upon first getting the keys & hearing her engine come to life, I knew she would be just the one to make my mark on the town. The beautiful style, performance power, & easy engine access for maintenance made her a great first project/weekend truck.

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

    Pros: Deep throaty roar & the power of a V8 to pleasure cruise.

    Cons: Engine mods require premium gas & the low fuel economy gets expensive.

    It Is Fun To Play In — Its got plenty of power. its a little slow on acceleration. brakes dont use them much just my foot to the floor. it has got great handling. i had to put a new bater cables on it . got to have a new tie in rod thats it.you will probably send about two thousand a mouth on gas an maybe 500 dollars a year on parts. the truck is fun to ride but its not for sell

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

    Pros: the 4 wheel drive works unlike z71s

    Cons: gas

    ?? — I'd Say It Had About 325or more horse power, it has excellent acceleration, brakes need minor work, handling is awsome also. we had to rebuild the rear end not to long ago. Appearence is not a factor, its kinda sorta good on gas if you dont give it hell. its my favorite vehicle to drive.

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

    Pros: It has a performance 350 small block

    Cons: nothin

    Awesome, Drive One! — In the middle of restoration, currently building a 383 stroker for the truck. It runs in primer gray right now. Bought it for $500 and have currently put almost $1800 into the truck. It is a bomb, love the thing, go buy one.

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

    Pros: Everything is cheap, parts, fuel insurance etc..

    Cons: There are none

    1978 Chevy Scottsdale — loved this truck, would get another one. It sucked gas like none other but it was worth it. Duel exhaust with no kats or mufflers...LOUD and proud. Very nice paint and interior. It had a 305 with an edelbrok carb.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: its a chevy, wouldnt die even after hitting a bus

    Cons: gas....

    Never Say Die! — This is an old truck that will never die. It has been in a wreck with a 90's mustang, and it got a cracked marker lens. Great work truck. However, it only has a L6 with a 3 speed, which ensures its longevity, but makes interstate driving a mostly avoided practice. Not going to win any beauty contests either. But a truck built like they don't don't build them anymore!

    Pros: Longevity, Strong

    Cons: Speed
