I dig that. I’m surprised how well that pickup pulls that look off.

Yeah, I thought it looked terrible, and I really like the old square bodies.

Meh. Maybe if they skipped the wagon wheels, those are the epitome of white trash

Also think the black / silver theme would sell better.

I love it. Might would go for the green/tan or bronze/tan (that modern brownish bronzish color with a pewter stripe would be to me) or blue/white a little better but I really like the overall look of it.

If they would just put the aluminum trim around the white like the original ones. Now that would be a real classic look. White wheels I could take or leave. The chrome beauty rings really made those trucks look classy back in the day.

Like I said on DP....Nope, looks like ass.

Two tone that doesnt follow body lines doesnt look good.

I cant stand that GM didnt paint the lower portion of the tailgate on the -800s with two tone to match the fender paint. Every time I see one, I think they half-assed it.

The best thing about the old square bodies is they offered a non two-tone version with no trim. That truck looks like shit

I had a 79 shortbed. Best truck I ever owned. It was a Silverado trim package with pearl white from the factory with the trim delete option. Biggest mistake I ever made in my entire life was selling that truck.

The biggest reason the two tone trucks are ugly in my opinion because of the trim. Even without the trim I still just done like two tone on square bodies.
