    I'm currently abusing a minivan like a pickup truck. And finding myself hankering for an 8-foot bed again.

    I'd love to see pics of your daily drivers and work horses.

    And classics.

    And family friends.

    Last October I bought a brand new 2019 F-250 Diesel 4x4.

    I've since put a Four Wheel Camper pop up truck camper on the back.

    Thanks,
    The engine is currently out and I just got the 440 block, crank and rods back from the machine shop. It was cleaned, Magnafluxed, bored and balanced. I need a couple more parts and then I start assembling the engine. I rebuilt the transmission already.

    The Babe Magnet. 1981 Dodge W240 4sp 318. It's a "man's truck" right down to the no AC, roll up windows and hole where the radio used to be.
    At work I drive a "wanna be a man's truck" a 2017 1/2 ton start box GMC, it's got all the things a sissy likes and sorta looks like you might be able to haul a load or pull a trailer.:) 20190805_202212.jpg

    I've always loved that body style - especially in that color.
    Nice truck!

    I have a hobby that requires that I haul a lot of stuff. Does that count?

    I've always had at least one pickup or larger truck. Mostly due to work but I would want one regardless. If I had to pay or ask someone for a favour every time I wanted to pick something up, transport gear etc it would send me broke and be a real pita.

    Almost bought a 396 C10 when I was a teenager. Dealer wanted $500 and wouldn't take a penny less, so I walked away. (graduated high school in '83 it was before that) Burnt the tire pretty good on the test drive though!
    Had a couple of 396s in cars, a '70 LeMans with a 4sd and the other a '66 Impala 396SS.
    They were kinda fun.
