    :notsure: Sold a mint condition Z/28 last week b/c I needed a truck and was getting tired of sub-20 mpg and driving a black (over black interior) car in the south. Haven't quite gotten used to the lack of power and TORQUE (the Z put out ~370 at the crank and would skip shift into 4th gear by at about 10mph), but I'm at already at 300 miles on the Taco and still have a quarter tank of petrol.

    I'll be honest I don't love the truck yet, but I'm thinking that will change when I make my first run to Lowes for renovation materials this weekend. It'll be nice not paying delivery charges every time...

    As for the truck itself, it seems well built and comes with a ton of kit for the $. Better set of tires to clean up the profile and it should be good to go.
