I drive this truck often and have used it to haul lumber, bagged concrete, moved kids and grand kids. Entered it in a few car shows and won a trophy or two. It runs great, does not use oil or smoke, always starts and stops very tight. Well built truck. Drives very well at highway speeds, 60-65 mph no engine strain, thanks to the overdrive transmission. Not a speed demon but will get you there and back home loaded or not. Thumbs up everywhere it goes. Well maintained and always garaged.
