    I drive my 53 daily, but I also drive a 64 f250 4x4 and an 86 suburban too. My 99 don't see the road much unless i'm going a good distance.

    I drive my 93 GMC because it's my baby. PLUS I can't afford a new truck. But again if my 57 drove like a new truck I would prefer it but no power steering or brakes leaf springs in the front & back isn't that good for my back problem.

    Well, my 99 GMC is my current daily driver, mostly because it's the only vehicle at the house during the day. Weekends we usually drive my g/f's 97 Dakota. Before the GMC I had an 84 E-350 that was my daily driver, but with that big 460 in there my business partner used to joke that the reason it had twin tanks was because one was just for starting it. I think it used to get about 7 MPG.

    I’m pushing 60 and my ‘06 ford 350 4WD work truck kicks my butt, especially on the steep mountain dirt roads that I have to deal with every day. It’s a real pleasure at the end of the day to jump into my ’03 GMC Sierra Ext Cab SLT and just relax.
    I hope this photo is not too big, I don't know how to make it smaller.
