Show your service truck...or vans
I bought 'Old Yeller' late Summer of 1976, she was kinda burnt Orange then, bought a Reading Tool body for it, and a Tommy lift gate, just turned out of the Apprenticeship program.
Around 300-400,000 miles on her, a different bed on it, 3 sets of ladder racks, 4 transmissions, maybe 3. My son blew one of the engines, on it's 3rd now.
I still use it on some installs, and pick up equipment with it, have to wipe the inside of the windows every now and then, anti-freeze coats it, leak in the heater core.
But I love that truck.
My service truck is a 2008 Super Duty 4x4 crew cab, hasn't passed a fuel stop it didn't love.

You put tears in my eyes! My first american truck was 73 Chevy - the same color! I loved that truck! I could walk on top of the engine hood! I could get inside the engine compartment! I was getting thank-you letters from Opec!

I have a hoist in my detached garage/shop, I back under it, attach a rig I made and lift out the big Weatherguard tool box, install a smaller Weatherguard for the trailer nose to clear, then hoist in the 5th wheel hitch and I'm ready to roll...
I got the weekenders at our local Koenig sp? truck outfitter.

Does this count? While not quite as impressive as a 2008 Crew Cab, this old 2000 Club Car has been my bulldozer, dump truck, service truck and shop vehicle for 7 years now. It hauls 1 1/2 and 2 ton condensers back and forth in the dump bed with nary a squeak. The floor handles my recovery machine, recovery tank and vacuum pump and the seat handles my stereo and tools for when I pull a unit...does 0 to 6 in less than a minute...
