Most of the time I drive the '88 F150 - 6 cylinder automatic. I know it looks like %#*^ but I only gave $125 for it six or seven years ago and with a few small repairs I have maybe $200 in it now.

06 Chey K1500 crew cab, traded for it about a year & a half ago. Didn't need the 01 3/4T anymore & the 5.3L gets much better gas mileage than the 6L did when I'm not towing!

1987 F350


My "Wagon Queen" isn't my daily driver but I try to run it every week. With a 7.5l gas and a Holley 4-barrel, it'll get 8 to 10 on the highway. Some of the reason for the poor gas mileage is the gearing. It's only a three speed auto with no overdrive. It's in third gear by 25 to 30 mph, driving normally, and it's all motor from there. My daily driver is an "09 Ford Focus.

The same...... thing..... I've been driving for the last 11 years. Thanks for the reminder.

Oh, it's not that bad. the 2002 Tacoma is an outstanding piece of machinery. No problems up to 150k and in the last 30k since then, I'll I've had to do is replace the fan clutch (from pa roadsalt, of course) and the oxygen sensors. I didn't know that you're supposed to swap those out at 100k.... Anyway, they went to about 170k before tripping the check engine light. Not complaining.

You guys got sweet rides, though.

It's either the "Heavy Chevy" ( my main work truck and show queen) or the "Beater GMC" (beater truck/work truck/ people hauler truck.) The GMC is dad's main ride but I will drive it from time to time.

Thanks Cvans, it's an '87 with 71 thousand on the odometer. I was warned that it was probalby 171 thousand and that some people used to unhook the speedo cable at the rearend, but I don't think that's the case with this one. There is very minimal wear on the interior and it runs very strong.

Lots of great lookin' rides, probably not by accident most are pickups! My rides are old and not real pretty but I have fun with them.

I drive the '55 GMC 75% of the time and the '72 GMC 25% of the time. I have owned the '72 since 1979 but the '55 didn't come along until 2009. The '55 gets a lot better gas milage than the '72!
