    I don't have anywhere to park it...but I just bought and drove home an 83 C1500 pick-up. I bought it from CanmoreK5 and just got home with it this afternoon. I had to fly out to Calgary, then Paul drove us out to his property where we spent a little while going over it for the trip home. It made the ~700 mile drive home through the mountains no problem at all...and even managed a damn respectable 23.6 mpg average for the trip. 25 mpg shouldn't be hard to achieve with this truck.

    The route I took was very windy, lots of steep hills that went on for miles etc etc.

    Anyways, onto some pics!

    That's a nice truck Rene. I'm sure you'll be able to hit 25 mpg. I'm still amazed that I'm running btw 22 and 25 on my C2500!
