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!

Later---DAC


Nice looking old iron you have there! Love the 55.

My daily driver/weekend hauler is a 1984 Nissan 720.
Decent on fuel and easy on insurance.

Yeah and there is one more that was pouting and wouldn't come out for a picture. She is mad because I haven't replaced her lift pump yet.

Hey Wolfgang, that's one I have never heard of before. Where is the vehicle manufactured? Gas or Diesel?

Hi Chris, the car is produced in the Czech Republic. SKODA is a very old automobile factory and now part of VOLKSWAGEN. So are many parts as the engine and the gear from VW. The gear is produced 10 km away from me in Baunatal :thumbs: The car is a permanent 4WD, Diesel, 140 hp - and it runs good :ok:

What kind of fuel mileage does something like that get? Kilometers/liter?

Sounds like a good combination. I wish we could get more vehicles like that over here.

This car use original 7 litres per 100 km, ( ~ 1,8 gal per 60 miles). My wife's Yeti needs a little bit more (here next car will be a FORD KUGA).
