    Can-can's post on selling his k5 made me think of my '69 C-10. Lots of memories there. It was my first truck. I still own it.


    So the question is who here has owned a truck the longest? I have owned my C-10 for 17 years. I know some of you can top that.

    By the way this thread is useless w/out pics.

    My C-10 of 17 years

    Well, my grandfather bought it new in 1985, sold it to my dad in 1996 or 7 and then I acquired it in 2001, so 6 years.
