    Ok, so some of you know i have a 1994 Chevy Silverado pickup that i bought new and still have. Anyhow, i have fixed a bunch of little things it needed to get it back on the road, and during my online search for a similar site to fabo but for GMT400 pickups a few months back, i found the Chevy truck legends site sponsored by GM. I started up an account and listed photos of my truck along with a brief history of it, and that i dont plan to ever sell it because its been such a great vehicle, then i pretty much forgot about the website as i shifted gears and life moved forward to other things. So last night i have this box that came in the mail. I didnt recognise the senders address, and it wasnt something i ordered. I open the box, and there is a thank you card from Chevy truck legends stating they are going to be sending me a ball cap and decal for my truck in a few weeks, and in the box was a 1/24th scale diecast Chevy Silverado model as a gift. Wow i was stoked. I collect diecast models and thought this was such a great gift from them, that i wanted to share.
    Thanks
    Matt

        Yes, building brand loyalty is still important to some. Wish Chrysler would figure that out.

        They used to have it more than anybody. Remember the "Good Guy" pricing of the Direct Connection days? There was a time when they gave a damn.

          Didn't mention Fiat in the same breath because it would have been rhetorical. They just wanted Chrysler for its "add water - instant distribution".

          As much as I despise Chevrolet, it is pretty cool that they'd send you something like that.

          Good on Chevrolet for doing this!
          I've always preferred their trucks (and GMC) over the others from say 2000 and on.........
          My 2004 GMC 3/4 ton 4X4 is still an awesome truck with just over 60,000 miles on it (102,000 km) and don't ever plan to replace it.
