We have a 71 GMC 3/4. Has a impala 327 in it, 3rd motor, would like to build a 350 for it, and have someone do some body work on it.


It's a shame what the city-slickers, and government have done to trucks. Single cabs are scarce, no manual transmission, 40k+ price tag, fully loaded with every electrical contraption. An owner's manual that just says "See your local ***** dealer" for everything. Auto-tranny;s don't have a dipstick to check the level. No external tranny or fuel filter! 3 cats and a trash can muffler!!! EGR on gas motors, and Tier 4 diesels!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Until things change, the truck I have now will be the last one I buy.

out of touch with reality pricing mistake.

I dunno. Remember the $400 dirty jeans? Truck buyers probably won't buy one but a city slicker that has 10 acres just outside of town will. I immediately thought of a recently retired oral surgeon that lives just outside the 'burbs of Wichita & also owns some land (strictly for hunting) by us. He's probably ordered one already.

I have a hard time paying more for a truck than I did for my house. It seems like they will eventually price themselves out of the game. That old Ford is pretty sharp. For a Ford anyways. I'd rather buy that than some of the trucks I've seen my buddies buy. 19k for a truck with 250k miles is normal prices I've seen them pay recently. I just can't bring myself to do that. Somebody said they lost touch well I wander how a foreign company would do if they just sold a work truck model. I was thinking about trading a few months ago but I e decided to keep mine. If you figure cost per mile, or per year, either way it's cheaper to replace parts than buy new.

I don't know where folks get all their money. All the lakes around us have big houses, boat lifts and really nice boats sitting on them. And most don't get used but a few times a year. The best I can figure is there's a lot of folks that worked smarter, than harder.

Yup, same here with a '49 Ford pick up that we replaced in 1973 with a '66 Ford. Fond memories of that '49 Ford.

Nothing wrong with luxury options - I like my bling and my fancy truck. But even my husband's Man Truck, a 2015 Silverado 3500 HD cab/chassis was sticker priced at $46K, then add the flat bed, grill guard, mud flaps, etc . . . it all adds up.
