Damn it Diaric! Stop being old! :hehe:
Its not being old, its being rational and fighting the new stupidity.

The worst part is that I remember when a "Step-side" didn't have steps and was just a pickup bed. Then came the Chevy Cameo Carriers in '55 and the Swept Side Dodges with the car fin sides in '57 and Wide bed was born. Worst part was that they were originally sold to attract the GIRLS to buying trucks!!

They finally were made truly useful when you could lay them newfangled 4 foot wide plywood sheets flat in the bed and close the tailgate.
When a one ton was a big wide framed truck, with a small cab and a box that held nothing.

Its the same stuff with crazy engine sizes to feel special. They tell you the engine is a 355, a 407.... :confuzeld WTF is that Censored. We used to describe it so you knew what it was, no BS, a 350 that's .030 over.
My buddy used to mess with the guys who came up to him at drag races and ask "What fer motor you got in that Mustang?" He'd answer "A 2 gallon" instead of 460. :hehe:

I used to crank up the reverb when that song came on the radio and I was driving around in my 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS Convertible - with a 409. :coolnana:

There are only two cars that I ever owned that I really wish I could have back again in factory original condition. That one, and a 1963 Pontiac GP with the 421HO option and 4 speed manual. I'd love either one, but the SS edges out the GP by just a smidgeon.

That is a nice truck. Not to far for Freddy to drive, but far enough to be disappointing when he finds what new paint is hiding.
