    Tough question. All time favorite car I've owed... too hard to say. The "coolest" car I've had was my 'sweet 16' present... a 1972 Opel GT.

    I agree with 2COR on the 350tbi. It does lose steam fairly quickly going up steep grades, but it otherwise performs very well. I have no problems with freeway speed on flats when towing over...

    You may be cutting it close with the 1/2 ton, but not sure. Hopefully someone else with your specific type will post a reply. My '93 is a 3/4 ton, 5.7L and has a tow capacity of 8,600lbs. It also...
