oh man!! i love that. it reminds me of my first car when i turned 16, a 1992 s-10. it had the little 2.8 v6.Same. Every now and then I look around to see if I can find one similar to mine. It was my first new vehicle. Despite the body rot, you couldn't kill this thing. That 4.3 was indestructible. I had it probably three feet in the air jumping motorcycle moguls while off roading. I sold it around ~215,000 and, despite all that, it still had the original engine and transmission. These are pictures I took when I listed it for sale. I still miss those seats. They were so much more comfortable than what I have in the Avy.

its funny to me to think about the fact that when i was turning 16, i got an 11 year old truck and i felt like it was old!! yet now i drive an 18 year old truck, and it feels brand new to me.
just a fun thought on how our perspectives change as we (and our vehicles) age.
