ok lets get two with one picture the 1995 k1500 pick-up and the 1983 cadillac eldorado

Picture or Video 101(1) well the pick-up was just a work truck but it never compained, no matter how overloaded it was, and the caddy, i always loved them, i remember when they were new at the dealer where i worked, got a chance to own a well preserved example....

1987 chevrolet k10

Picture or Video 095(1) my first pick-up! it was a manly mans truck, no power windows no a/c, just basic truck...but it did the job well....
