Well that is the thing about restoring a car like a H body vs a "catalog" car. IF you can pull it off you have something that is not easy to duplicate. Anyone should be able to restore to perfection a Camaro, Corvette, Chevelle, Mustang etc, etc. You can buy anything for them. Same can't be said for a H body, you have to search, scrounge and restore the parts you have. But when you are done you have something unique............

This was my daily driver and weekend race car for several years. I had a 5.3l LS bored to 5.7l in it, and it surprised a lot of people. I eventually got tired of the stress of breaking my racecar and not having a daily driver, so I sold it and bought a 99 Silverado for a daily, and a derelict Vega out of a field in Nebraska for the next project. I learned a ton from breaking and fixing that truck, but I like my Vega better 8) . I sold it to a local kid, so I still see it at the track sometimes.

my daily now is a 2010 colorado crew cab 4x4 with the factory optional aluminum 5.3 ls v8 in it, makes it a whole new ball game in comparison to the standard 5 cylinder they usually come with! i know where the engine is going if anything happens to the truck lol! :D

Fred!! Good to see you're still kickin'. :th:

I looked at those trucks before I bought my '13 Sierra. Even with numerous attempts I just couldn't find a comfortable seating position.
I'm betting it really scoots with that 5.3.
