2008 Truck of the Year

It was a great and close run for our TOTY, but the winner has been decided.

Congratulations to our Truck of the Year for 2008

Prostreeter58

1959 Chevy Apache Fleetside.

Not only does she look good, but she hauls!

Congratulations again. It is one fine truck!

Re: 2008 Truck of the Year

I wonder if anyone back in the days when our trucks were bring built...ever thought that these trucks someday would look so sweet. Some of our trucks are actually in better condition then when they were manufactured. Hopefully someday when my truck grows up it will look 1/2 as purdy as all the contestants. Prostreeter58 !! You have one sweet looking truck!!

Congratulations... I haven't been on the board for a few weeks so I didn't even realize I was in the running. I couldn't have lost to a nicer truck... Sweet ride and a well deserved win.
