The 1985 i bought used about 25 miles away and I made it about a mile from my house and it ran out of gas.
The 1987 i bought non running with a seized engine (original engine) I poured oil in the cylinders and dragged it down the road in 4low in 4th gear and it broke loose and runs pretty good now.
The 2004 Silverado i bought new (factory ordered) it had 4 miles on it when I took delivery.

hiluxxulih, those are some pretty awesome trucks.
Have you contacted GM about the lost paint? After all, it's only an 85, that's almost new.

Its real patina I am not sure why the gray truck rusted the way it did the other truck was a contractors truck so it was pretty well used and dead (siezed engine) I dragged it down the road in low range and 3rd or 4th gear to break the engine loose it runs pretty good now.

GTP you were right! Great stories!

1985 - How many gas stations did you drive past before it quit?
1987 - That is a new on me, wild - I always had good luck with WD-40, when I do that.
2004 - Did they make a mistake, or did you actually order a green truck?
