Folks naturally talk about whatever is shiny and new but that's no reason to forget about the vintage goodness.

They've still got their devotees. I'm one of them; I love the lifestyle body trucks. I have a '69 D100 as well, which are even less common than the Lifestyle trucks, but also harder to find parts for and less comfortable to ride around in thanks to an I-beam front axle and leafs at all 4 corners
And a friend of mine restores/fixes/trades in them so he always has a rotating stock of 4-6 trucks sitting around in addition to his personal '75 daily driver.

They're not as common to see as the GM's and Fords of that vintage, probably because there were fewer produced in the first place and since Dodges could work a lot of the ones that were produced got worked to death. But they're still out there, and the ones that are in good shape are commanding some respectable prices on Craigslist and Ebay.

Thanks! I'll try to get a few photos of my buddy's current collection the next time I'm over there. He's got a bunch of the 70's & 80's trucks in various states of repair.
