Nice catch on the tires. 

I s'pose I oughta take a look at the ones on my '86 F250. That's a 20 year old restoration so the sneakers likely have some age too.

Any 5.7 Olds diesel that went over 20,000 miles is the exception rather than the norm. The owner of our dealership had a beautiful 1980 98 diesel as a demo. 2000 miles the crank broke in 2

My Dad had one of the VistaCruiser wagons with the diesel. After the 2nd replacement engine failed (yep, he was determined--two of my brothers were GM engineers and he was trying to keep the faith) he gave up and went to a Chevy minivan.

We had a mechanic in the shop who thought his poop smelled like roses. He was working on a 79 Delta 88 with a noise in the engine. He replaced a couple of worn rocker arms. The customer shows up and he says I just have to test drive it. About an hour later it comes in on the hook. A piston decided it wanted to be in the oil pan. :helmet:

First trip was a success. We went to a small lake about 25 miles from home, spent Friday and Saturday night out there. Did some fishing, but not much luck, which I knew would be the case, this particular lake you really need a boat if you want to catch many fish. But we still had a good time with no major mishaps

Looks like you had a very successful first outing! Congrats (and a tip of the hat to your spouse for spotting that very handsome camper--the truck, that is).

BTW, I've heard that the activity is called "fishing" and not "catching" for a reason! :)

I believe I first read that many moons ago on the last page of Outdoor Life. Patrick McManus.

Excellent first outing for the new/old ride.

@ClassicTractorProfessor I’m happy to see you brought that camper back to what it was meant to do, instead of rotting away! Good save! Happy camping!
