They are both nice, but the '86 is sweeet. Covered inside the garage, that sounds like show quality.

I have taken it to a couple of local shows. It's not a A+ show quality, but its very close. A nice set of wheels & tires would really set it off, but that take $$$, someday soon. No rust, so I like would like to keep it that way. It only comes out on a nice dry sunny day.

Another one here...love it!

Unfortunately I got t-boned by a bonehead and it's in the shop. A 2016! Only had it 2 months. Even after 23 grand in repairs it's still not totaled out. I miss it dearly, but hopefully by the beginning of May it will be fixed. All OEM parts too since it's so brand new. (Thankfully no salvage!)

First truck I've ever had and not sure if I will ever go back.

2016 Black Colorado LT Midnight Edition Ext. Cab V6 - Black Bowties - Black Tonneau Cover - Spray Bed Liner

Side steps / HID w/Relay Harness / Projector Lens / LED Interior Lights / LED Cargo Bed Lights / LED Fog Lights / / LED DRL strips / LED side step indicator Lights / Bed Mat / Tinted Windows - 5% / UnderCover Storage / Husky Floor Liners / LED Tail lights

Comfort isn't just determined by height, but by each person's proportions and the geometry of the vehicle, so short or tall, male or female, you just need to sit in and drive any vehicle. The Colorado is the first vehicle we've had in 20 years with more than enough leg room for my husband. The last vehicles we had that he didn't wish for a tad bit more legroom were late '80s model - even my '87 Chevy Sprint (anyone remember those?) had enough, yet was good for my short legs.
I will be making a cushion for the driver's seat in the Colorado; so far the passenger seat seems to work for both of us. However, at least on our '15 Colorado, the driver's seat only adjusts up and down, forward and back. The seat itself is not adjustable, and slopes to the rear. This has the effect of making the front border (bolster) of the seat hit both of us uncomfortably. If i have the seat at the height I prefer, my heel does not rest comfortably on the floor. The well of the bucket is too deep at the back, too. Not bad for a few blocks, but it will not do for long distances.
This isn't the first vehicle that I've had to use a cushion of one type or another, there is no way to make seats for all drivers, except (maybe) for ones with many more adjustments.

Sorry to hear about your wife Ron .....She'll always be with you. :)

I was never brought up in a religious-church going household - I've developed my own personal beliefs. I turned out OK. Take this as a grain of salt since I don't have a clue about it!!!

You have plenty of time to discover your own beliefs - whether or not they are the same from what you've been exposed to. You have to find peace within yourself.

I've known religious people who fell 'out of religion' because their church changed things.....and I've also known people who fell on hard times who needed to find God to help them thru it.

It's whatever you need it to be FOR YOU.

Sorry....I'll shut up now!! LOL

You know, I prefer your '86 or my '16, on the prettiness scale.

Oh, how I can't wait!

Also check with your dealer if the pedals aren't comfortable. There may be something they can do or add to make it work for you.

Bumpin for the ladies!!

Good Morning Ladies!! I can't say I'm active on the forum lately. I think the 'honeymoon' is officially over now after 6 months of ownership. LOL. It's a great truck and it's settling into my lifestyle now. The summer is coming to an end and the truck has been our lifeline here lately with our 'fishing' passion.

I should have some photos up soon, but the truck needs a bath inside and outside. Too many fishing trips and a lot of dirty gear have passed thru over the last several weekends!!

My wife used to drive my Silverado as needed. We have had this Colorado for a couple months now and she has yet to get behind the wheel. Just no interest on her part.
Whatever........
