      You can’t shame me if I tell you. We have a Tahoe but still waiting for Ram to relaunch a Ramcharger. I would have one in an instant.

      One can find these Express trucks in the most unusual places. Last summer I was walking around a Toyota Dealership showroom in Juneau, Alaska. In the far corner of the building was a little display of classic vehicles, including a Lil Red Express owned by one of the partners of the dealership.

      I just happened to be there when the owner walked by and popped the hood for me. Can you believe my amazement to find he had installed a crate 426 Hemi in the pick-up? Had to relocate the master cylinder, of course.

            So that means it was about 17 miles from my house! :D

            Great Score! 360 automatic?

            I use to service them when they were delivered to a dealership in Maryland. Cool trucks :thumbsup:

              Oh yeah, those are cool too. It’s a long story but with work I only one personal car and it gotta do everything and I’m not the primary driver.
