Re: How old were you when your truck was new?

Three years old when my 67 rolled off the line and five years old when these trucks got my attention. American made and Chevrolet was in me then, now and forever.

Re: How old were you when your truck was new?

Won't ever forget, I was 21 coming back from my second tour in Viet Nam. You could buy a brand new SS 396 Chevelle for under $4000. Sure wish I would have bought one and stored it. Same with the Z28 that came out that year.

Re: How old were you when your truck was new?

My truck was sitting next to my office window for a month when I decided to ask the guy to move it. When I saw the truck was registered on my date of birth, I immediately bought it and became a square body nut.

So answer: I was exactly 0 years old at 18th of june 1980.

Re: How old were you when your truck was new?

-14. Truck was built November 1966 and I was born Dec. 1980.

But I have owned the truck over half of my life. I bought it when I was 15 in 1996, this November will be 20 years.

And go figure, the cost for a nice one is approaching 20x that. Then take into consideration a Yenko or Mopar with a 426 Hemi. They probably didn't cost much more than 4k, and what are those worth today, 1/4 million?

What year was that? Personally, I generally prefer a TA over a Z28, though some Cameros would be very tuff to pass up. I had a 72 Malibu. Drove down the highway like a dream, but I'm not a big fan. Again, I'd rather have a GTO.
