Finally, after many false starts, I will be buying my truck sometime this spring. Due to a rather unpleasant experience a couple of years ago, I am looking for someone to do a ride-along with me when I go check out potential candidates. I need someone to be "The Voice of Reason", so I don't get carried away and wind up with a lemon like last time *cough*misdiagnosed rod-knock as bad lifter tap*cough*. I need someone who knows pre-80 GM fullsize trucks. Appropriate compensation ( beer ) will be supplied if you don't want to do it to help a fellow wheeler.
