1978 Dodge Ramcharger 360 4-speed — This truck Was a real surprise once I purchased it. I previously had a 1988 Ramcharger with a fuel-injected 318 v-8 and an automatic transmission, and though a definitely sturdy and hard working truck, the ride was very stiff and the fuel economy appalling. I like the older truck's style with the removable top and better styling, but w the real surprise was that with a bigger, carbureted engine and full-time 4- wheel drive, I was getting better fuel economy than the truck that was ten years newer! The ride was also incredibly smooth, smoother than any truck I've ever driven. This is by far the most fun vehicle I have ever driven, and the most capable.

Pros: looks, handling, performance, power, and fun factor.

Cons: fuel economy, though not as bad as I expected.
