    Its coming out great, I love those old Chevys. My buddy plows with an 84 and that thing just wont die... We call her brown cause the brown spray paint blends in with her rust... Not much stuffing left in the seat but she is an animal, runs awesome, plows awesome, and has heat... We still hook her up to some of my friends trucks and have tug of war competitions...

    That's a good looking truck. I love that body style. A lot of the local fire departments around here still run those for brush trucks.

    good looking truck. I agree if you throw some newer style rims on there and a new bumper it would set it off
