How old were you when your truck was new?

Just curious.

I was 7 when my truck was built. Got my 1st one in 1974. A 68 GMC 910.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

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

I was 13. Now I feel like the old guy around here! Only good thing is I learned to do drum brakes, point ignition systems and carbs.

Now I go to the autoparts for something and the person behind the counter says: Whats that?

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

I was 10 when my 72 was new, 7 when my grandfather bought my 69. I was at his house when he brought it home from the dealer, he was a quiet man but was really excited that day! Rode around in it a lot as a kid. I knew it would eventually be mine!

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

My '67 is 14 years older than me. 1967 sounds like it was long before I was born but in reality 14 years is nothing.

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

6, had my first 71 c10 when I was 13.

Funny, it was only 7 years old with 45,000 mi on it then but it seemed wore out at that time. I have an 2007 2500HD now thats 9 years old and everyone thinks its still a new truck.

My current 72 is the 7th truck of this series I've owned, I just can't seem to be without one for long.
