A Solid Work Or Camp Truck If Well Kept Over The Years — terrible on gas and underpowered 5.7liter v8 . loads of torque for hauling but thats where the fun stops. don't expect to win any races chevy built this thing as a work truck in my opinion and that it does well.

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

Pros: proven to be diehard , eays to work on, 5.7liter is heavily backed with tons of aftermarket hop up parts

Cons: terrible turning radius, usually very high mileage due to age

Its Awesome And Mine Is One Of A Kind — This is a great truck. I have the positrac rear end in it and i love hearin it squeek around those sharp turns in the rain. wish i had the 350, the the 305 delivers a little more gas mileage.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Power

Cons: Gas Mileage

1988 Chevrolet C1500 2x4 V8 5.0l 305 — It came with a 305.... Ugly ass rims, and a couple of other things. It's a great truck, hasn't given me any troubles other than losing any damn race that I am in. Great truck for only $2200. Would be great if I could rack up the money for a 383 stroker :) ----- Sounds funnnnn

Pros: It isn't awesome, it's just a vehicle

Cons: The amount of power it has

88 Chev Truck — i bought this after my car, for 1200.00.its got a 305 V8 in it. i ended up putting new prime well muddin tires on it, pulling the tranny and replacing the front and rear seals, put new u joints on the drive shaft, new shocks all way round, put neons on it, and a sound system with 2 10" subs in it. it sucks gas and hauls ass! oh and it has an 800.00 borla exhaust system on it, manifold back system. sounds nicee :)

Pros: strong, quick, reliable

Cons: bad gas mileage

Good Solid Truck — 405000km and not a rattle or squeek anywhere. First 19 yeasr this truck belonged to a constuction company and had a plow on it. Lack of TLC but a testament to Chevy's build quality.

Pros: 305- desent fuel mileage

Cons: Short on power

Overall:

Reliable Old Truck. — Ummm....it's a truck. I do truck stuff with it. I've hauled junk, pulled people, off-roaded it, but it's never been stuck. Mostly 'cause I've never done anything in it stupid enough to get stuck.

Pros: This truck has simply been a good, reliable truck. It's not fancy but it's good for what I need it for.

Cons: Gas mileage sucks. Other minor problems as well. But mainly, gas mileage. If gas didn't cost 3.50 a gallon it wouldn't be that big of a deal.
