I'm not so much a GM fan anymore. I used to be, but I drove Fords as well. Right now if I was to get a truck, GM would be at the top of the list to look at. Otherwise I don't know what they have that I would want.
I agree. They were a great looking car back in the day. The 80s ones looked pretty good too. But then they went FWD, and what was the point to them then? And then Olds died, of neglect and bad leadership from GM.
I have an uncle with a 1970 442 that he bought new. It's still in fairly good shape. The Rocket 455 is a monster engine. But they don't age well. There's a defect in the lubrication system which causes the camshaft to not get as much oil as it needs, and so suffers excess wear over time. So old Rocket 455s don't run smoothly.
