What to do with the poor Blazer....it’s sitting behind the garage of the old house, I ran it last night and the exhaust looked unhappy
You have a few variants to the cabins of fullsize trucks: 2-door, 2+2 with rear hinged or half sized doors, and fullsize 4-door. Here’s my proposition, why dont we call each cabin variant the same damn thing across the entire industry? I know, I’m a madman!!
Last month, I took the plunge and decided to go out and get myself a bike hauler. A motorcycle site needs to move motorcycles around right? Now I need your help to make it awesome.
My mom likes to poke fun at me when I agree to do something non-car-related with her, “Oh, you sure you want to go for a hike? There aren’t any vehicles to drive or shoot...you suuure?” Little did she know, there would be a truck to shoot.
Apparently selling Volkswagen’s in Salem, New Jersey has gotten so bad that they would rather put used trucks in their front yard than their new Volkswagen lineup!
Specifically I want to talk about “truck” word associations. I think one of the more pervasive themes of truck talk is centered around what a truck “is” as well as who should and shouldn’t own one.
You get desensitized to 1/2 ton truck sizes when they are everywhere around you and treated like “entry level” products. Whose first car or driving experience was a full size truck (Southern Oppos especially)? I learned in an F150 long bed, and learned manual in a Wrangler.
I don’t need a truck, or really want one, considering what a modern truck costs, and my old man would keel over if I bought anything with a blue oval on it, but damn that’s a good looking truck. Provided this link works.
- Tri 5, because yes.
- Square, because no truck can out truck a Square Chevy
- 60s, nearly tied for 2nd when it comes to truckiness, but I’m not too wild about the styling
- GMT800, because GM took that platform and did some cool shit like Quadrasteer and the 8.1 liter Vortec
- 49-early 55, they were peak ‘Murica
- K2, because I…
Do you have insomnia? Do you have a love for classic 80s Monster Trucks? Well tonight’s showings are for you! Experience classic Monster Trucks from the early days, when steel bodies and KC lights ruled the arenas. So sit back and enjoy classic Monster Trucking at its finest.
Here are some quick stats:
The 2016 Chevrolet Colorado can now be had with a 2.8L Duramax turbo diesel, rejoice oh yee midsize truck fans! Rejoice!
First off, let me say that I think it’s nice that Chevy brought a Red Hot Z06 up to their truck event in central California, but it would be a whole lot nicer if they would let me get some time behind the wheel in it.
Retrospective is a series that takes a look at interesting vehicles that aren’t frequently written about. They may not be classics, but they definitely are worth a look.
No, not that kind of Coke and no, not that kind either.
In their February 2015 issue, Car and Driver compared similarly-equipped Tundra, Ram, F-150, and Silverado models. Since the Tundra and Ram are both basically irrelevant for my purposes here, I want to focus on the battle between the Silverado and F-150. Here’s the deal.
I have a habit of going to places at the less than ideal time. Colorado while there is still snow, Baja when the Sea of Cortez side is 105, Death Valley in summer... So, why not add another one to that list.
