Awsome — great truck but only used it to haul scrap and to move some friends. it was going to cost about 150 to replace the carb. it was one of those trucks that you like but didn't want to deal with the bullcrap.

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

Pros: great work truck

Cons: the carb

I Recomend This Truck — high acceleration, quick response all the power i need the handling is ok but it is very top heavy especially when cornering at 70+mph, but i love this truck best truck ive ever owned just wish it was 4x4

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

Pros: quick response and acceleration

Cons: weak tranny and rear end tends to break easily

I Would Buy It Again If I Had The Choice — it needs some paint on it.it runs really well needs some body work. putting a new engine and new transmission in it. i wish it was a standard. i wish it was a 1970 dodge challenger but it aint. so in all in all its a good truck

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: its very strong.

Cons: its engine is  a little weak

Ummm — well its an old farm truck, costs about 110$ to fill the tank. The running board fell off when i was goin up a hill once lol. The exterior is a really cool color of blue no rust or nothin no dents, she's in real good shape. She's reall funn to drive on gravel, an floats around corners. I recomend this truck to a experienced driver cause it will flipp pretty easy, if your not sure what your doin on gravel.

Pros: the body is all intact no rust

Cons: pig on gas

My Very First Vehicle — My dad gave me the truck when I got my first job to go back and forth to work, it wasn't pretty but it was mine. The speedo didn't work. The carberator needed to have a manual choke which actually made it more of an anti theft device because only my dad and I could start it! I miss the old goat, good times good times!

Pros: It was the same colour as the dirt road I lived on so it never needed to be washed.

Cons: It was a dodge
