I think the majority of us drive trucks or suv's because a fisherman have to haul their gear. Although I am guilty of throwing the canoe on top of an old Escort beater I had once. So how do you roll. Me-2003 Chevy Silverado Z71.

I don't have a Pic just yet. But I drive a 1994 Chevy silverado. Motor just rebuilt. ( sleeper ) Rebuilt 350 stroked 0ut to 383. Pushing 400 horse power / 390 to the rear wheel. Looking to add a Magna super charger to it this year. She is UGLY, but she sure does fly. I got smoked By a HONDA Civic a few years back. I told myself that would never happen again.

Lol! That's what I like to hear. Sounds respectable. I have been into trucks and muscle cars since before driving age. I recently sold a '69 K/10 CST I had for 15+ years. Factory air, factory tach and gauges, 3 on the tree, 350 crate engine. Truck was a frame off rebuild and I put 30,000 miles on it after that. Growing family and different needs so I sold it. Now looking for a project car to work on. Fishermen are such diverse people.

I would love to have a project car or truck. But with three kids under the age of Three. I have a hard time finding time for me and the wife, let alone time to do something like a project car/truck. My truck that I drive now is my work/fishing truck, so any time something happens to brake I replace it with something newer, bigger and better.

Right now I am driving my old 1994 Jeep Cherokee 4X4 ( 260 k miles ) Just had engine completely rebuilt 3 months ago. It has a crumpled up left front fender which I never intend to repair. This helps to prevent people from pulling out in front of me, plus it causes people to dive for cover and get out of my way when I slide uncontrollably into the parking lots of tackle shops.:eek:

at that rate - I'll join the 200,000 mile club in the year 2020...lol.
As far as you have to drag your boat to the water, I'm not surprised. How long 'til you get 200K on your boat, though? That's a good year's worth of fishing, isn't it?

2005 Toyota Tundra plain jane don't need no fancy gagets for me went through that with my country cadillac. Dual quads on and Eldenbrock high rise, blackjack headers and 4 inch pipes. Got wiped out by a teenie bopper running a red light and blue light go figure.
