I love this thread- glad to see the old boys used for what they were intended for. Here's my old beater that sees a lot of off highway use with my Alaskan camper. This one was shot in the Mojave Desert.

This one was on the road to Saline Valley in California. I took the kiddies along on that trip.

This one is a little more recent near central Nevada at Spencer Hot Springs.

This truck also hauls full loads of dirt and gravel when it's not on vacation, so it really can't afford to spend much time at the paint shop! I do maintain it pretty carefully though. It has solid brakes, sway bars front and rear and the 292 is upgraded with alternator and an msd distributor.
