Sportruck

I know some of you have seen this already, but for those who haven't here it is! I picked this up earlier this week and it's the nicest pickup I've ever owned. It was a very long night driving to Livingston and back, but it was totally worth it.

Congrats! Caddy's are a lot of fun to drive!
It's better to wear out, than rust out . . .

It's really clean. Does have a few dents you can't see in the pictures, but they aren't bad at all

Yes they are! This is a rabbit pickup, not a Caddy though.

And here all this time I thought my two trucks (pickups) were called a Caddy....

I think it's a common nickname. I prefer pickup

It's been a while since I posted on BSE. Here's a video I shot of the Sportruck last summer. There is definitely some rust that I'm going to need to fix. Right now I'm in the process of cutting apart panels from another pickup. I'll be posting videos on my channel periodically.
