I believe that is a '78 Vette. It had been hit in the rear, and the owner bought a stagon wagon conversion kit (they sold such things back then), and put it on in '80. Good for hauling ash.

That's not a pickup bed or bubbling spa back there. It's prolly an AUX gas tank for a blown 454 under the hood. It gets interesting gas mileage, I'm sure. ;)

Larry, this is for you, baby:
"Maybelline" Chuck Berry
Maybelline, why can't you be true? Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true? You've started back doing the things you used to do
As I was motivatin' over the hill I saw Maybelline in a coup de ville A Cadillac a-rollin' on the open road Nothin' will outrun my V8 Ford The cadillac doin' 'bout ninety-five She's bumper to bumber rollin' side by side
Maybelline, why can't you be true? Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true? You've started back doing the things you used to do
Pink in the mirror on top of the hill It's just like swallowin' up a medicine pill First thing I saw that Cadillac grille Doin' a hundred and ten gallopin' over that hill Offhill curve, a downhill stretch Me and that Cadillac neck by neck
Maybelline, why can't you be true? Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true? You've started back doing the things you used to do
The Cadillac pulled up ahead of the Ford The Ford got hot and wouldn't do no more It then got cloudy and it started to rain I tooted my horn for a passin' lead The rain water blowin' all under my hood I knew that was doin' my Ford no good
Maybelline, why can't you be true? Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true? You've started back doing the things you used to do
The motor cooled down, the heat went down And that's when I heard that highway sound The Cadillac a-sittin' like a ton of lead A hundred and ten a half a mile ahead The Cadillac lookin' like it's sittin' still And I caught Maybelline at the top of the hill
Maybelline, why can't you be true? Oh Maybelline, why can't you be true? You've started back doing the things you used to do

ROTFLMAO! Nope, I'm all natural. No makeup, silicone, or support clothes for me, thanks. My preference in wimmenfolk goes ditto, though I wouldn't be averse to chewing on Angelina Jolie's lips (or other body parts) for awhile.

Make sure you check out what the rear differential ratio is, prior to buying. That 4.11 rear end will pull anything, and will also have you pulling into every 4th gas station. I have a 3.43 in my Z-71 Chevy and I get over 20 mpg. That 350 engine still has lots of power.

You might want to give some serious consideration to the Toyota Tundra. I don't have a Tundra, but have a 1992 Toyota Pickup that I purchased new in 1992...it has cost me just over $600 in repairs (not including normal wear items like brakes) in those 13 years and is BY FAR the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. Heck, three years back I had a brand new company car that didn't run anywhere near as well. Personally, I'd rather pay more up front for quality than pay for a bunch of surprise repairs.

Look up trucks on www.edmunds.com. There is everything you want to know about all models and you can compare specs and features until the cows come home. The only thing you can't get is a test drive, but that can be arranged.
