1988 Chevrolet C1500 Cheyenne 305 from North America
Ready for another 400,000km
When I bought the truck, it had no starter on it, it was the only thing I had to replace on it, as the previous owner removed it to use on another truck.
I also had to replace the coolant temperature sensor, as the little clips broke off the side at one point in its life, and it kept unplugging itself.
I bought the truck for 300 bucks, and I currently drive it every day to work and school, which is at least 100km per day. I love this truck, it has never let me down, and it's really the only good thing I have.
I couldn't be more happier with my truck, I don't know why we can't build a truck that will last this long anymore. This truck has been treated like a truck all its life, and I have no plans of retiring it in the future. Me and my Chevy are planing to take a road trip from Nova Scotia (where I live), and drive to Route 66, possibly all the way to California this summer. I would trust this vehicle to go anywhere.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

"I don't know why we can't build a truck that will last this long anymore."
Yes, they CAN build them like this, they just choose NOT to. That way, the stealerships can rake in the cash for the endless issues, while their front-line men work on these modern monstrosities for chump change. The automotive industry today is a joke. There is no money in this game for the hard-working, honest mechanic anymore. People are too blind and dumb like sheep to see it... after all, they are ultimately the ones responsible for this happening. People want their freaking useless gadgets, and pay tons of money for it. And, of course, the industry has found a way to cash in on the stupidity.
