I'd just like to see other's Chevy's! I started looking at 4500's tonight, can't wait!

Honestly I'd like to have 2 of them but that won't happen. One in the pickup version and crew cab.........the other a dump truck.

Recently purchased a 3500HD with the flatbed on the back and duallys. 6.5L Turbo Diesel. Man does thing work!!! I cannot tell you how much I love driving this thing!!! I load the 18' trailer up as full as I can get it with equipment, and never know it's back there.

POST IT UP!! yeah i'm wanting the D-max............i think the 4500 is just the right truck, can carry a load a fit in tight places

i HATE issuzu's*........yeah they can turn tight but thats it and don't feel safe in them at all........especially after a guy at my last company wrecked one, lucky no passenger or they would have been dead POS

I have a 1980 Chevy K10 used as a spare, and would like to restore it. (sorry - unable to post pics)

Does anyone run any classic Chevy trucks (any fullsize older than 87) that they'd like to post a pic of? I like seeing the old Chevys still on the job.

Alright here is mine, wish it was at least 3/4 ton, but it takes everything I throw at it, and I am pleased.

I know I've seen your truck posted a few times and everytime I see it I like that color more and more.

Thanks, its a pretty good color for this industry, it just doesn't show dirt very well.

I think we got the same color. Mines called light pewter metallic.

You can't see in the pic, but my truck is actually kinda dirty.

For "work truck" thats I we have ever run. I started this bsuiness with a '76 dually crew cab. Now we have an 86' 2500, an 85' C-20, an 86 c-30 DUMP and my personal truck is an 05' : )

The old chevys will work just as good as a new truck when kept in good mechanical order, plus I like the way they look pulling mowers, better than all the 06' diesel F-250's running around here.

You may have a use for them but I don't really. It holds my sign!

Once, maybe twice I had it loaded with brush but when that truck is in action its usually got the dump trailer behind it.

Plus, now I've got 'blue' so Chevy doesn't see a lot of action. I use here and there and a few jobs absolutely require it. Besides it now being paid off (ahhh yes) its doesn't really cost me anything.........but it is my backup for when 'blue' is in the shop so my business doesn't stop. It was a life saver when I blew the orings around the injectors.......I was SCREWED but Chevy hopped right back into the game!
