"I have become the proud owner of my dad's old truck, a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4x4 with a 5.3 V8 and about 180,000 miles on the odometer.

It is rusty. It has bad brakes and a bunch of other issues. But it is awesome, and it’s going to be a blast to fix it up. Inspired by David Tracy of Jalopnik, here’s a look at what’s wrong with “Old Grey,” as my dad dubbed it, and what’s ahead for my very-excited-to-be-a-junky-old-truck-owner self."
