Mines  got the big 194 straight six. You might be surprised just how lively that little engine is in a light car like the Chevy II. That one has been in the family since new in 64. I don't think it ever did any cruising main street by the original owners but once in a while on a nice summer day I'll take it to town for old times sake.

Ah yes. The "good ole hutterite truck" in that one lol. We always chuckle at that because a few years before that song came out dad bought a diesel 4x4 truck from some hutterites. And it don't get stuck, much.

Chris Ledoux has another song called Montana Rodeo, there is a line in the song, "There are some college boys from Missoula here, school has just let out, they got a keg of beer on a tub of ice in the back of a BRAND NEW SCOUT"
