Default 2018, the return of the two tone trucks!

I gotta say, I am really digging these new "retro" looking Silverado's.

My first truck was a 1977 Chevy. We've done mono-tone trucks for a really long time now, this looks surprisingly fresh.

PBH is clueless. Those are amazing. Case closed. The real question is how am I to pay for one?

I'm not forking over the $80K plus for a Duramax that looks like it's from 1980.

That said, I would own an old two tone single cab - shoot make it real American and gimme one with the stepsides

I think that's getting closer. I had a white/yellow 78 ford F150 Custom with 1" stock lift. Man I loved that truck. Took me to a lot of places I never should have been and got me out of them also. I never got that truck stuck and didn't find a hill I couldn't climb. Burned up a lot of tires in that ride.

Brings back memories.

Buddy had a 79 Chev. Need to get the right color schemes and would love it if they went back to the blocky style and kept 4 doors. I like a little change. There were some hideous colors in the day. Gives em character.

Nostalgia is a powerful thing and separates a man from his money. I knew there was a reason you were waiting to buy a new truck.
I guess I will have to wait until they remake the 1990s Fords. But until then I bought a sweet Disney puzzle themed from the 1980s.....
Seeing those painted rims makes me wonder if the stack of painted rims I have are now worth some cash.

I wouldn't fork over 80k for any vehicle... ever. In fact all of my vehicles combined: truck, suv, 3 atvs, 3 snowmobiles, boat, motorcycle and travel trailer didn't come anywhere near that.

If I won 80k off a scratcher today, my first thought would be "awesome, 2 years closer to retirement!"

Amen. Never said I'd buy one, just said I like em. I won't pay more for a truck than I paid for a house.

I tell my wife, every day I work is a day closer to coveralls.

Anymore on new vehicles I would never purchase one of them. I however might lease them. I started to think a couple of years ago after I purchased a 2016 Ford Explorer that with all the electronics on them you would be in trouble if something should fail after your warranty was up. What was a simple go to the dealer and have them do a tune up for $100-$200 now is a major expense and could run into the thousands. Most of the mechanics out there today just know to plug in a scanner and let the vehicle tell them what is broken or not running right.

That perpetual payment of a lease with a new vehicle every couple of years with the vehicle always being covered by a warranty sounds better and better. But then leases are not for everyone but in my case they are starting to make better sense than buying a vehicle.

My first truck of my own was a 77 Chev 2 tone that I special ordered.
Waited 7 weeks for it. Longest 7 weeks of my life .....
Was a great truck. Had it 26 years. My wife talked me into selling it to my nephew.
It went thru me, my 3 daughters, my nephew, his little sister, and the little brother of his wife.
It finally died last year for good.

I like the looks of the black and white one. But, like has been said, they have gotten too expensive.
