Love these trucks. Awesome graphics on this one. Color-matched rims are always sweet.
Love this gen of B-series with those color matched steelies+80's as hell graphics.
I knew a young manager who drove one of these trucks when I started at Taco Bell in the early '90's. She and her husband bought the truck new in '84 and were the only owners. I wasamazed at how long that thing stayed on the road. It was a fixture at the restaraunt all through the '90's and into 2001, when it was retired to farm duty after racking up well over 200K miles. I visited my old workplace recently and spoke with the woman who owned it. She told me thather teen-age son was in the process of getting the truck roadworthy again. Maybe I'll see it parked at the restaraunt again someday. Just goes to show how long these B-2300's last inthe hands of the right owners.
What a wonderful old truck. I love this and it is totally cool. Really great to see these things still on the road.Good kudos to the owner who as done a good job taking care of it and keeping up on the maintenance.Wonderful.
We had an '84 B2000 for a AutoValue parts chaser, but it was more stripped down and had "Sundowner" emblems on each side. It was beat to hell by many generations of teenage Autovalue employees.A coworker and I broke off the "Sun" part of the badge. It was the oldest and if the 2 late 80's Rangers (which had working AC) were taken already you were stuck with the "downer".I learned to shift without a clutch in the downer...the gearbox was extremely easy to perform that feat.
Ha! I quite like these things, like Couriers I never seem able to pass one up. Finally I was able to add the Simpsons tag.
Joel Rifkin had two of these...just sayin'.
