Buy that Sierra. If I had the cash I would buy it right now. For some odd reason the 73-87 Chevy/GMC are my favorite generation for Chevy trucks. Yes for some reason I like them better than my almost 40k 2005. I do like the luxury and drivetrain better on the 05, but for a truck I can really use without worring about it and being able to mod it the 73-87 ownz.
fuck a 4x4. get a 2wd then bag it and rail (thats throwing sparks to you non-minitruckers out there) the shit out of it. but thats just me.... oh i know a guy that has an 88 Ford Ranger GT for sale for $700 (i believe). it needs a new motor. if you are interested, lemme know and i will get you his contact info for you.
