My New "Old" truck for outdoor fun

Well I have long wanted to go back to an older truck for my outdoor driving needs.  I was able to make that happen a few weeks back.  The new "old" ride is a 1995 Chevy Silverado.  It has the original 350 TBI engine that I really like.  This was apparently the last year GM used that engine, they went to the vortec model after that.  But I've used and maintained the 350 TBI engine for about 8 years on two previous 1992 trucks so I am very familiar with it.  Overall this one is in decent shape and just what I was looking to find.  I have a car for work that gets good gas mileage so this will be the third vehicle for my fun and truck needs :)  Anyways, just wanted to share my recent acquisition to the outdoor arsenal of fun.  Here's a few pics



  1. I'm with you on the appeal of an old truck. Easy to work on, sturdy, classic. Good find!

    1. Well put Corey. That pretty much sums it up. It will probably look better with a canoe somewhere on it though :)

  2. That is the truck my grandfather had for a while out on his farm. I think you will only be happy with it. I think that he might have even had it in that color, too. We were able to go pretty much anywhere and do pretty much anything. I would suggest that you get the cover for the back.
