How To Burn Through Sawsall Blades — Nothing stock left. All done in my 2 car garage. Looks kinda cool and only have about $2500 invested in whole thing. Has 350 v8 with ported quickburn heads and solid lift cam. Engine set back 9" from factory 2.8 mounts, cab set back one foot and dropped. Over two foot bobbed from frame ends. When finished (air bagging right now) will be waist high at windsheild.

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

Pros: I'm the only one who has one like it.

Cons: roadster+rain and cold= sucks

Should Have Left It On The Lot — this is the worst truck to own,it pulles good a light load, the build of the truck sucks and the truck falles apart in alittle work, if it was four wheel drive it would have been fun to drive.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: it cheap

Cons: buy a real truck

I Good Small Truck... — Well I bought this truck strickly for work... but it ended up doing so much more. I had it for a while... couple of years. I was a good truck. I bought it used and the engine blew... so I fixed that and it ran well for a long time.

Pros: Took many years of abuse... at my hands and of the hand of those before me... and kept on trucking

Cons: not much it did its job...

Full Throttle Mayhem — At 115 Horsepower, The 151 Iron Duke was a large engine for a truck that barely weighed 750 lbs. With a 4 speed Borg Warner T-5 Transmission, This truck hauled more than ass. Topping out at nearly 140 mph, this truck would shake incredibley and lift off the ground. The white walls were a nice touch, but I never completed the truck. I sold it to buy my 96. Although the truck sold for 1,200 after being completely rebuilt and originally purchased for 100 bucks. I miss it. 28 mpg. and the front end would lift if you were on a hill trying to pull out.. this truck was almost too much to handle... Almost.

Pros: Powerful, Smooth, and an experience to ride in.

Cons: Nothing was bad on this truck.

Good Little Truck ( Bangin) — This truck is Bangin'. It is small so its easy to park and clean. the enterior is stylish for that of a 1986 model. a nice truck overall. it has a 4 cylinder engine in it so it gets around 25-28 MPG. so itll save a bunch on gas. it also comes in handy when moving furniture or whatever. this truck is like a blank palet when it comes to modifications, you can jack it up and put big tires on it, or you can put 22's on it like a donk( my choice), or you can put bags on it and drop it. whatever you want can be done to this truck. you came keep the four cylinder in it for gas mileage or you can drop in a V8 for more power or make it a racer.

Pros: Good on gas, small, nice, is great for modifications, AND ITS A CHEVY

Cons: only fits two people(three if you squeeze), the four cylinder is powerful, but not that fast,
