Awesome Truck! — I love almost everything about this truck, except the poor gas mileage. If I could afford it I would drive this truck every day. I always get second looks in this truck mostly from older men who want to talk about the good ole days. I love every second of it!

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

Pros: I love the look of this truck.

Cons: Poor gas mileage.

Great Truck, I Got Another One. — Great truck! I wished i would have kept this truck, i built it myself into a Harley truck. The little 302 would peel the tires at any time you wanted it to, and the sound of the side exit flowmasters was amazing. the interior surpassed that of a new car. Overall it was a pleasure to own this one, thus why i bought another to build up!

Pros: Fun and turned heads.

Cons: None
