We had a 73 Chevy 454 Cheyenne. It got 7 MPG pulling a stock trailer with 40 head or just cruising around town. It would roast the tires and leave black tire crunchies behind. It was the only vehicle I have ever seen with the speedometer and the fuel gauge connected to each other.
I once had a '79 Ford F150 Ranger extended cab with a 400 Modified and 4 barrel carb.

The rear tires would break lose just by tapping the gas peddle and if you laid into it, you could noticeably see the gas gauge drop.

I couldn’t see paying that much over sticker price right now. Plus I rent brand new trucks several times a month and there’s not a new truck on the market that I would even consider owning. I recently picked up a extremely low miles 2002 1500 HD and I’m very happy with it. And then I still have my 83 crew cab 4 x 4
