Silverado, best truck out there. At the boat ramps, a dodge ram could not get the boat out due to slime, just kept spinning. We took a tow rope and tied the Chevy to the dodge then pulled truck and boat out at the same time. The Dodge owner said his next truck would be nothing but a chevy.

I'm excited about the possible comeback of the Chevy Caprice. My first car was a dark green, 4-door, 1980 Chevy Caprice Classic, absolutely awesome car . When I sold it it had 298K miles on it. I stopped driving it at the beginning of December (I live in upstate NY so it gets cold!) and when the guy came to buy it it was the end of January so it sat in the dead of winter for almost 2 months, untouched. When the guy showed up to pick her up I got in, sat down, put the key in, and turned her over. That car with 298K miles on it that just sat for 2 months in the dead of winter turned over like she had been sitting there idling for an hour and a half and had just been shut off. I have a lot of fond memories of that car and always will, a true beast of a car. Can't wait to see her re-honored .

All these old car stories are making me really miss my old car :(.

Best story is being on the OPPOSITE side of the fence - being the one providing the car, and seeing the joy it brings!

Katie was the lucky buyer of our 2010 Camaro launch car, and she got the first ever Katzkin leather interior upgrade and no cost.... her excitement at delivery made everyone involved feel great!

My first car is a 69 Chevelle SS convertible 4spd. When my parents bought it they drove me and my brother to grade school in it. It was our family car for a few years. A more practical car came along and it was put behind the barn. I turn 16 and we drag it out to get it running.

It was the mid 80's and those cars weren't collectors' items then. I drove the wheels off of that car. I drag raced, cruised, slid it sideways a few times and generally abused that car. I learned to be a gearhead on that car. I put many clutches in that car and learned to stab the tranny with one hand and start the bolts with the other. I was stronger then.

I remember my friends and others making fun of me for driving that car. They would ask me, "Do your parents make you drive that car?" It was about 3 different colors of orange and 2 colors of primer. The rust holes in the rear quarters were the topper to the general bad appearance.

The funny thing is how time changes perspective and attitudes. I went to my high school reunion and the first thing most people asked me was if I still had that car. It's funny they remembered that car and how the fact that it is now worth a bucket load of money now changes their thoughts about it.

I had one guy try to buy my car from me at a car show. He got out his check book and told me to name my price. I told him it wasn't for sale and he said everything had a price. I told him he didn't understand about me and that car and it wasn't for sale at any price. He walked away disgusted and in disbelief. I guess he never met a real car guy before. LOL

BTW, I do still have that car 25 years later. I am in the process of doing a complete frame off restoration on it. She deserves it.

I have other good Chevy stories but that one is by far the one that means the most to me.

My first Chevy experience, Let me see , well I was 6 years old and going with my Uncle to his house. He had a 1963 SWB Stepside, bought it new. Had a 327 with 3 on the tree and dual glass pack exhaust. So on this winding country road, windows down we came upon a straight away and there we go 100 mph. From that day forward only Chevy for me, as for the truck well after that day the very next day it had an electrical fire under the hood. He had it repaired and today the truck is now mine, it is being restored/street rodded and should be complete soon. Love this truck and my Uncle.

I'm going to skew the age demographics here, but here goes:

61 Corvair Rampside Pickup (Check the gas - fill the oil)
62 Chevy II 300 sedan (Black/White top/Red interior) I don't make this up!
65 Chevy C10 Pickup 6cyl - stick. Green. Rubber floor mats. Enough said.
69 El Camino Red/Argent silver rockers/Black Vinyl Top. Awesome! (Thanks Dad!)
Then a mix of GM/Ford stuff for the next 30+ years
10 Camaro SS FINALLY

Well being a young buck my first chevy was a 1994 silverado z71 that I bought used. It had a good paint job and ran great with the 70k miles it already had on it. Me being a young country boy I had the loudest pipes I could find on it and hit every mud hole I could find. It was sunk in water 2 times, rolled down a sand hill once, I was rearended by a school bus at a stopsign (the bus had more damage), and side swiped by a drunk driver. All it ever needed was a little bit of body work. I ragged the hell out of that truck and it never missed a step. I put another 50k miles on it and it still ran strong and would go anywhere you pointed it. I sold it to my little brother when I joined the Marine Corps and 2 months later it was totaled. I cried a little in private and to this day wish I had never gotten rid of that truck. I bought a nissan titan after that and quickly traded it for an 03 Ford lightning (which I love) but I still miss my old Z.
