    78 C10 — these old trucks are amazing. they hold their value good and i love to drive it. i think they look good too. the smallblock chevy v8s definitely have some power. and nothing sounds better than an american v8. i am thinking about putting a supercharger on mine

    Pros: good motor. last forever. lots of room and room for cargo. look cool and sounds even better

    Cons: poor fuel milage(i dont mind).  lots of body roll

    For A First Vehicle, It Was Terrific. It's My Fault It Fell Apart. — I inherited my grandfather's truck, a green/white long bed regular cab with around 65,000 miles. It was my first vehicle, and I was a clueless teenager who didn't care very much about the things that I owned, so eventually it succumbed to my neglect. However, it never left me stranded, always started up fine and was taken on many long trips, and didn't need any serious repairs for the 5 years or so that I owned it. For a late '70s Detroit pickup hampered with badly designed emissions control equipment, it performed quite well and got decent gas mileage (by decent, we mean 12 city/17 highway). There is really no situation where I would buy another, but it was a really good first vehicle and exactly what I needed at the time.

    Pros: Tons of utility; great reliability; decent appearance; comfortable ride for a pickup

    Cons: Below average gas mileage; needed much TLC; prone to rust

    Nice Truck — Truck was awesome, however it needed some work. The pick up has plenty of potential. The truck would look great lifted or dropped but i just did not have the money to work on it. It was a bench seat not much room for passengers, but it was still a great truck. Engine was never rebuilt. Poor truck needed a tune up badly.

    Pros: Plenty of potential to fix up

    Cons: Gas guzzler

    Pros: works, runs,easy to work on.

    Cons: not much to look at right now.....but one day! Oh yeah!

    Light 'em Up. — Far from stock, with a bored out big block 454, full length headers, race cam, medium high rise intake, and Holley 750 double pumper, this truck definately turns heads. The interior is in immaculate condition, with 40/20/40 bench seat with fold down center console, all tan. The hood is a Harwood Fiberglass 3" Cowl Induction.

    Pros: Attention Getter

    Cons: Gas Mileage

    Its Basically A Tank — Its an awesome truck that my Dad and I restored. Its got a 305 with 4 on the floor. Its got some pep but there is room for more.

    Pros: Its got a real engine, a V8.  Its pretty good on gas for a V8

    Cons: Its 2wd and has single exhaust and a 2 Barrel carb
