Hey everyone, just found this forum. I bought my first Chevy truck and was looking for a good place to chat with some other owners. Looks like I found it.

I'm from Utah, and just got a 1989 C1500 (305ci) Standard Cab, Short Bed (hence username "Shorty") with 80,000 miles. I need some help thinking of a name for him/her. If you have any suggestions...

Also planning to paint it eventually and haven't decided on a color yet, so I'll take input on that as well.

Hope to learn a lot from you all. Here's a pic (to help you think of names):

Hi Adam, welcome to the Forum. Great project you've got there. That model really catches the looks. Look forward to seeing your progress. Color: Satin Black or Metallic Gun Metal Gray. Whatever color you choose, it will look good! :)

Welcome :) I think your truck would look good lowered and in flat black :twisted:

Haha... you're not the only one. The truck is kinda flat black, and it was lowered when I got it. The previous guy had "lowered" it by just taking the leaf springs out of the back--makes a truck kinda useless to not have *any* suspension. :D

I do agree that properly painted and lowered it would look a lot better though.

YESSIR, with some blacked out wheels and a great sounding exhaust your truck would be bad a$$!
