Re: Long live the Daily Driver

Here is my 1984 GMC diesel . Bought this new in July of 1984 still my daily driver 480,000 miles, 4 spd on the floor and 4x4 no a/c . I have done the body a couple of times now but still runs very strong.

Re: Long live the Daily Driver

I try to drive mine once a week. I love the simplicity and character. However, it runs and drives... like an old truck. It is noisy, and over-all, is a chore to drive. It desperately needs an engine swap. I doubt it will pass emissions when I have to get it checked in June. Meanwhile, this one has taken the back burner. There is a lot of little stuff I want to do to it, but I don't have the time or the space for the next few years.

I love the simplicity of this truck... I wish I had the stock wheels for my ride. I have a set of rallys but, those look much better for the "original" look!

Re: Long live the Daily Driver

Every day. 18 miles to work, usually about 25 home to avoid traffic. 1985 C10, 2007 Vortec 4.8, 4L60E. I've been driving this one set up this way for four years.

I really love it. Around 21 mpg and good power. It always starts right up and doesn't stink if I stop at a coffee stand like my old carbureted trucks. You'll ask yourself why you waited once you get yours done.

Amen to that. We just had a pretty strong storm blow through and on my way home from work in my c10 - I was more wet inside than outide because my windshield started leaking as well as with the seals on my vent windows... good times!

Wait one minute... what is that on the trailer? That is crazy!!! I truly hope that has a killer stereo to pound old school rock while smoking Camel non filters and wearing an AC/DC concert shirt! That El Camino is cool!
