About “Pace Truck”

My truck was one of those great screamin deals you hear about but never believe actually happen. I saw it advertised in the local "Penny Pincher" at $4,500 o.b.o. by such-and-such a date. I really couldn't afford a whole lot, so I made a lowball offer of $2,000. It turned out that mine was the ONLY offer... Believe it or not, the guy was so desperate for money that he took it!
(Sorry it's so dirty in the pictures. I don't have a camera anymore since some lowlife stole mine!)

About “Daily driver/Towing truck”

I bought the truck form my girlfriend's father as a get me by truck since my 69 C-10 blew up... Two years later... its still a get me by truck and now starting to cost alot of money to keep it going...
The truck is a "mix breed".. the grill says its a Chevy, the steering wheel says its a GMC, the dash says its a Chevy, the tail gate says its a GMC, the center caps say its a Chevy... But the title says its a GMC... so i dont know what it really is...
