    Well first off the guy likes the color blue!
    He has replaced the vacuum lines with blue ones, also blue loom/wire cover and blue air filter

    He does not maintain the vehicle very good but it looks good! Look at the coolant tank if there is any coolant and its not just a stain the level is below the operating range.

    Hmm it looks like a vortec to me cause of the airbox muffler on top to the right in the pic.

    90s model pickup thanks to the hood lift springs and the edge of the fender visible. Pickup due to the larege amount of space open and very compact a/c system. Bolt-through-center valve covers, which would indicate it's closer to an 88-93 model I'd say. Not crazy about that bolt style. Looks like the heater lines ar running to the radiator, or at least one to the water pump and not to the rear of the intake manifold. Ugly ricer air filter....That's about all I can think of right now...

    The point is to not get wrapped up in aftermarket junk and miss the bigger picture that you are have a leak somewhere and are losing coolant.

    Many times people want to pretty up their ride but what good does it when its broke down on the side of the road.
