Ok I know you work at a parts store, but I also know of two Silverado C/K 1500s that have a 5.7 liter...just saying. They also made the Cheyenne in the 88 through 98 body though, and most don't realize they have the Cheyenne versus the Silverado.

notice how there is a c/k in there, there are some c/k's that have the "silverado package", but they are still a c/k. starting in 1999 or 2000 i cant remember exactly which at the moment, they started offering a silverado that wasnt a c/k its picky i know but it bugs the hell out of me, that would be like calling an xlt ranger just an xlt, it dosnt make much sense unless the person already knew what you were talking about.

if you want to be really picky, it would be more like calling a ranger edge, an edge....not an xlt...because then ford came out with an edge. so it would be like the c/k and the silverado

1999, the older body of 88 through 98 was known as a "classic" c/k then, so you could still get it in a crew cab then or a diesel, but it was a new body by then.

basically the originator of chevrolet was french, way back in the day when there were a shitton of whorehouses and the like. Whatever the name of the french bastard was frequented one whore house in particular and on the wall paper of his favorite whore's room was a bowtie looking design.. which led to him using it as his emblem when he moved to the states and started making cars.

like i said.. not sure to the level of truth to that story, but i got a chuckle out of it either way.
Chevrolet wasn't owned by Chevrolet. Louis Chevrolet was a racer in the 1910's. He and William Durant started the company to build better performing cars. Louis was Swiss-born. He ended up getting into an argument with Durrant and threw his shares of the company at him and walked out. Towards the end of his life he had to give up racing and get a job. At the Chevrolet factory. On the assembly line.

On the original subject, if a car or truck is nice, I say so. No matter what make. Just haven't seen many nice Dodges

Chevy People say that Ford's DOHC 4v motors suck becuase they are too complicated and have too many moving parts to be reliable and they have no advantage by running 2 extra valves, and becuase of this the ls series are much better becuase they are pushrod 2v, small and lightweight. Because of that Ford needs to stick on a 4L blower on a fully built 5.4 and put it into a fully modified Ford GT running downhill to keep up with a stock ls1 in a long bed 4 door Silverado 4x4 hauling 92 tons worth of rocks in a huge ass trailer going up hill. Well Chevy guys by your logic the Flathead Ford v8 is the most superior V8 becuase its even more compact, has less moving parts and has 2 valves per cylinder. Infact a weed eater is even better becuase it has no valves!

Its sad that Chevy needs an extra 1.2L and a supercharger to beat a 5.0C Mustang.

Atleast Cadillac has it right with their 3.6 V6. Chevy guys dont complain about that DOHC, direct injected engine, yet if Ford makes one, its a POS that is POS.

What idiot has made that argument? I am a GM owner, and while we are all brand loyal, (I'd take a Duramax hands down over a Powerstroke, not going to lie) that doesn't mean we are all stupid. I agree 4 valves are the shiznit, I also think the pushrod is a simpler and better design though. But at the same time, the newer GM pushrod engines are 4v. The SOHC has 2 cams, not one, which makes it a major pain in the ass to time, and set up correctly. Ask me how I know! Their are upsides to both, and I don't see how any Chevy owner, no matter how tried and true, could be stupid enough to think half of what you posted.

1. Ive seen planty of none blowed LS1s stomp a 5.0
2. LS1 was in the car not the truck they ran LQ series
3. it doesnt matter whaat motor it is if you build it right its gunna win some loss some its gunna break one day its gunna spit oil.
I have never understood o brand x is the best no its what ever your partial to or had a good exp with. This is my first Ford its a 3.0 and I think the motor blows does this make me thinks Ford sux for making a crappy motor no just means I need a V-8 to replace it.
