    Just out of curiosity, what generation of trucks do you members like the most? As in 50s and prior, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, etc.

    Late 67/68 to 72.
    My older brother went through probably 15 trucks from that era during the late 70's and early 80's.
    He would build them up into a nice street rod then sell when his taste changed, which was every 6 months.
    At that time those were just considered old trucks and didnt carry the value they do now.
    My favorite was a 68 GMC camper special long bed with the 396BB, 4spd Muncie, power brakes, steering, A/C, power windows and locks, didnt know it at the time but it was rare to have all the power accys with a manual trans. Wonder where that truck is now.

    88-98 trucks. Dad had a 92 with 365,000 on the original 4.3 and trans that is the first truck I learned to drive. Then I had a 97 for my first truck with a 4.3. Now I have the 99 with a 5.3.

    I've always loved the late 70s to early 80s body styles.

    88-98 ck's. I love my 95. My first truck, clean and low mileage. It'll be a cold day in hell if I ever decide to sell it.

    I'd say mid to late 70s are my favorite cause my Grandpa always had one growing up.. but if I had time and money I'd love to build a late 60s early 70s model for cruising..

    Mid-70's to the 98/99 trucks are the best looking trucks in my opinion so are the 50's. But if we think about it Chevy and GMC trucks are always the best looking!!

    I like the looks of the late '60's and early '70's trucks, but still prefer the '88-'98 C/K trucks. I was finally able to purchase a full size truck for the first time back in 2008, even though it was used, and the '89 K2500 is what I decided to get out of several other choices. I still love this old truck!
