Moving under its own power was something this '84 Chevy hadn't done for a long time. Other than steering, shifting, stopping, and electrical issues, it ran pretty darn good, though. In the haste to testdrive, the seat was left in the bed, under its stylish cover, and a step stool used instead. A milk crate seat would've been too redneck, we thought. One of the things we brought was a fire extinguisher, which together with the towbar still being attached, are signs of how much confidence we had in this machinery for the shakedown run.
