    Looks like I have a new Tow Vehicle coming

    Been hauling the boat to Hyrum all summer loaded with Fire ring, camp mats and what not and the Hummer with the 5 Cylinder said it wasn't happy...An Extended Cab would have been more practical and easier to find....But No way, I need style and want a singe cab, short sport bed, 4X4 with a 5.3 V-8....Good luck.

    Well, I found a 1997 Chevrolet Silverado Single Cab, short sport bed 4x4 that has seating for 2 like the old Chevy CST or what ever it was back in the 70's....Bucket seats and a console. Needs a good detail and cleaning but this should be a great little truck.







    I might need new tail lights and head lights and diffidently some big wheels and tires.

    Even the GF liked it and thinks it could be a classic....like I will live that long.

    Well, deconstrution has started....Piss poor blue window tint is almost gone. Dropped it off for a full exhaust today and what a difference that made. Not sure I will be able to go to bigger wheels and tires so that may be a plus. I can order a new vinyl cover for the bed...Needs a good cleaning as I think the PO was a Vape Guy...what I cleaned was really nasty.

    Just a thought. those E Cig's, Vapes or what ever cling to the interior hard panels of your ride....Just think what it is doing to your lungs......Hell, I don't care what you all do or don't but I was just passing that a long....Just for fun go wipe down a few hard trim panels of your car or truck.

    So more work in the AM to get it cleaned up.

    Well it took a couple weeks of buffing, scrapping violet Window Tint, replacing the tail light, grill and headlights/TS, new bed cover, exhaust and I forget what else.







    Don't even know it is pulling to boat compared to the Hummer. Easier to back down the ramp than the Hummer and gets pretty good MPG even with the 350 SBC.
