The Dutch Chevy Silverado 1500 Pickup

Okay, they are following me. I leaving The Netherlands tomorrow, heading to Germany for a few days then home.  But for six months I have been living around the corner from the only old Chevy pickup in the Netherlands.

  1. That's one heck of a Chevy pickup you got there! Correct me if I'm wrong, but is that a Chevy Silverado Classic? I’ve always loved how that truck rides. It’s a heavyweight that can handle heavy-duty chores. You can drive down to Germany with no worries at all because that truck is made for long driving. But, don't forget to load up the gas tank!
