My dad gave me his 1982 Dodge D-150 in 1991 (similar to the pic). I think it had around 90k on it when I got it. He won it in a truck stag in 1982 (put your name in a barrel and the last person out of the barrel wins a truck). No power steering, no power brakes, no A/C. First mods I did was put in a big stereo. 6x9s in the door, 12" Kick comps in a custom box I build behind the bench seat. Had a Kenwood tape deck in it but did pop for the 10 disc CD changer that I had to mount on a scrap piece of oak and throw in under the seat. Had to mount it to the oak since when mounted it to the floor board the vibrations from the subs would make the cd skip. Sold it in 2000 with around 140k on it without a lick of rust on it and the original paint job. It's nick name was the "Big Daddy Dodge" or "Big Dadge" for short (southern Indiana slang).
I have two Battery Tender Juniors. One for the Mustang and one for the Harley Vrod. On the third yr using the one for the car and this is the 6-7 year of using the one on the bike. The one on the bike stays hooked up year round since I don't ride as much as I use to.
450 hp? A little lack luster for now-a-days isn't it? The V8 Camaro has 426 hp..... Isn't this GM's flagship sports/supercar? Shouldn't the hp be starting out around 500-550 and go up from there for the Z06 and ZR1? I do like the lines of the bodywork but the interior, like most GM cars, already looks outdated. Maybe it's just me, but I'm not impressed.
