For me I guess the appeal is that it kind of emvompasses the best compromise of 2 worlds. These trucks could handle very well (thankss to the fact that the manufacturers really dug into the suspensions), power matching the ponycars of their time, and they could still haul and tow like trucks. Also, when they were at their most popular the availability of true RWD sporty cars were at a premium. Also, done right, they look pretty mean
