1979 Chevrolet C10 Scottsdale 4.1 I6 from North America
A great work truck that is very reliable
Engine died at 130,000 miles so the engine was rebuilt.
Very rusty and needs new bed.
A tire blew, but from a nail on the road.
It may not be the fastest, but it's very reliable and gets from A to B.
The truck only gets sixteen miles per gallon, but I don't drive much so it doesn't really matter.
We have had this for over ten years and it still runs very well.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I know what you mean I have a 78' that needs a new tranny, but is still running.

I have owned my 1979 Scottsdale step side since 1980. Best buy I have ever made.
I have driven all over the West Coast with no major problems. Rebuilt the engine 2 times, only because I wanted to keep up the power. I parked the truck for 10 years and brought it out last year. While making the routine repairs, I now drive it almost every day. I am trying to keep it as stock as possible, and people continue to stop and talk to me about my truck.
