March 25, 2011My 01 that I drive daily I bought because some moron took the front clip off my 97 Cheyenne. otherwise I`de still be driving that. My 87 is a winter time and sometimes a beach toy. My 96 is a show truck now, I bought it off of my Aunt after my uncle passed away, he and I did alot of work to the truck over a few years and when he passed I bought it and it is now my rolling memorial to him. I have had just about every generation of Chevy truck and quite a few GM muscle cars and will never own anything but a Gm product. Another good topic choice. I love hearing the stories.

March 27, 2011Because it was the prettiest thing sitting on the Ford dealership.
April 3, 2011I chose my 91 std. cab ,4x4 ,8`bed ,pick-up truck for its nascar style close to the steering wheel feel, small turning radius .
April 12, 2011Whta made me choose my truck is most of all its a Chevy LOL!! Then it was the color,the Mickey Thompson wheels it had on it.Then took it for a drive,and instantly fell in love with it.Everything worked so that was a plus,and still does.I keep it clean all the time,and baby it.But still not afraid to use it like a truck should be used
April 12, 2011Well I grew up with pretty much my whole family ever owning Fords except for my uncle he had 98 Z71 reg cab short bed, 5.7 vortec w/ 5 speed and fell in love with his truck ever since then I wanted a Chevy. I didn`t get my fist Chevy till 2004 it was a 99 S10 reg cab short bed 4x4, 4.3 w/ 5 spd from then on it was Chevy and GM. When I got my 06 I had just sold my S10 and reenlisted (USMC) and was out driving around looking for trucks and saw my truck sitting there at the GM dealership had a leveling kit and 33`s and just had to have it. Since then she has gone though many changes but I have almost got it to the point where I want it.
April 13, 2011Well I first seen my truck 3 weeks before I turned 14 (which in Kansas you could get a permit to drive at that age.) Well actually there were 2 green ones, a light green 94 2x4 reg cab step side 4.3 5-speed and a 98 4x4 reg cab short bed 5.7 auto. I had my dad call the dealer that next monday and ask about the two. They told him about both and that they both were traded in the same day and no one has had a chance to look over either. After my dad told me about them I just had to have the 98 4X4 with the wide off-set tires and the bigger engine! Well a week went by and that next Saturday we to bring it home for the weekend and drive it around and just never took it back. That was 8 years ago...
o btw we did pay for it. Lol
April 13, 2011I bought my GMC C2500 for its towing capability and ride comfort for travels around Australia. These are not so common over here and many of them, like mine, are ex ambulances which are sold off as cab/chassis models. Because they are long wheelbase, mine has a 10 foot long tray.
April 13, 2011grew up with a mechanic as a father and he never drove anything but chevy`s cuz they took the least work out of them all and i just followed suit and couldnt imagine driving anything else. i love my chevys
April 13, 2011My dad was a Chevy guy, and luckily for me he saved me his 2001 Silverado Z71 and I got it in mint condition with 44K on it! I was so happy to get this truck and I am proud to say I never had any accidents with it and like BAKER said, ALL the girls LOVE a big bowtie haha!! Which also inspired me to buy a 2007 classic Duramax 2500HD and it is an absolute tank I love it! Stickin with Chevy forever.
May 6, 2011What made me choose my truck was the color.I love blue!Also the gray interior is really nice.The bed was already Rhino lined,paint is really niceo nt it,and it already had a nice set of Micky Thompson wheels on it that look good with the color.Not to mention the mileage was fair,and the price was pretty good.Everything worked,and still does.I am extremely happy with my truck,and i baby it
