    Comfortable, Good Looking, Reliable Old Truck. — There are no blind spots, which is one of my favorite things about it. You can see everything in the mirrors and just by looking. It's comfortable to drive, but you really can't take more than 1 person comfortably, but I've sat 4 on the bench and a few times even someone in the bed. There are some dings and scratches in the paint, as would be expected with this old of a car. Almost all (we had a mishap on the hood while replacing wipers, which are now brand new btw) were put on before I had it. It's not the fastest car, but I didn't have a problem merging with traffic or anything. Brakes work well, but I haven't done them so it could be good. Handles about average for it, I can make a u-turn in my neighborhood while only using 1 sidewalk. My new audi uses neither, a dodge ram 2500 uses both. It feels safe, it's a solid well built truck.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very comfortable to drive, you can see everything around you as well and it's easy to tell what space the truck takes up. Looks good, is fun, and is reliable. Drove it for a 40 minute commute Monday-Thursday for many months and only had a few mishaps that have been fixed, the right way. Rhino Bed Liner, I helped a few people move and the bed still looks gorgeous.

    Cons: Not great gas mileage, although it's not bad for an old truck. Not very good in the snow, but could be much better with sandbags and studs. You do have to watch the oil and tranny fluid.

    Long And Black — Has 75k miles on a 350. Mainly just inside work for now. I'm shopping around for a lowering kit for it and hoping to find a BBC soon. The inside is all rapped in black fabric with checkered inserts. Other then that its all stock. It looks lowered but that's just how it sits.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its all original.Minus the checkered flag inserts and black rapped dash and door panels.

    Cons: I hate rust and I hate overdrive transmissions.

    Would Love To Have Any Old Truck Again — Fun old truck. Was pretty worn out and tired, but still a blast to cruise around in. Sounded good once the 4 barrel opened up. 350 crate motor, aluminum intake, long tube headers, etc... only downside is that it had something like 2.88 factory gears which made it an absolute turd. could do some awesome brake stands though since the rear brakes were shot haha

    Pros: old school and cool

    Cons: expensive to drive, very noisy

    K 10s Are Beasts — performance wise the K10 is amazing with the small block chevy 350 the braking isnt the greatest but you get stopped and thats what counts. build quality is amazing you cant find a better set up on a half ton. the appearance is mean. if you buy a 85 now its going to cost you some money but its worth every penny. the fun factor is off the scale its a great pull or mud truck they love the off road with the solid ridgid axles

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

    Pros: they got plenty of power

    Cons: they dont have very good turning radius

    I Loved My Truck, Easy To Work On, Never Made Me Worry — very dependable, worked this truck very hard and it held up wonderfully. performance was pretty good considering it only had a 305 under the hood, i was a little displeased with the gas mileage, for the small v8 i thought i would have gotten more. it was a blast to take off road, but not taking corners, but hey its a truck not a sports car. the inside was a little bland, the outside had good looking lines, but the paint choice on mine was horrid, three different colors of brown, puke!

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

    Pros: if you need a pichup you can depend on

    Cons: if you didnt need a truck and you do alot of driving, cost of gas

    I Love My Truck! — It's an old chevy truck. No check engine light, no computer screwing up, no fuel injection getting messed up by uor crappy gas. And no fuel pump in the gas tank to replace right after you fill up. The end.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's paid for!

    Cons: None

    Big Colorado Truck — Big truck to get through the snow in Colorado. The truck worked well for the most part. The gas mileage was not good, but we had an extra tank. Switching to it was not the easiest, but it could be done while moving. The four wheel drive was sort of funky. You could not always tell if you were in 4x4 and it seemed to have a mind of its own.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great for snow

    Cons: Not good for gas mileage
