When these trucks were current, they had the MOST powerful V8s and MOST powerful gas engine (V10). Check the numbers on a 90s 350 and you'll see the Magnum blows it away (even the 5.2!). Only trucks with solid front axles, four doors, cab forward, most headroom, most legroom, most payload, etc. You can't compare what you see today with these. Go back 15 years in your De Lorean and see for yourself. Also only brand to offer sticks across the entire lineup. If you find a stick and fix the plenum, you'll have the best truck from that era. Oh, and I see 13-17mpg just like the sticker says.
