Dirty Deeds is the movie.

They are just going to school and then later a homecoming parade.

It's an extended cab short bed that's 81-87 style.

Rocky (Jim's Dad) drove a stepside in the Rockford Files. I haven't found a photo yet but I'm sure one is out there somewhere.

I already covered that one.

I realize that, but I wanted to provide a link to the movie and I cannot modify post with attachments.

Ya'll did realize I said movies right?  I guess I need to modify the topic ;)

i wouldn`t have remembered this truck in the 80`s movie  the legend of billie jean if i hadn`t watched it a few weeks ago.

i think it`s a 73 or 74 

unfortunately this is what happened to it >:(

What was the movie with Kurt Russel were the guys sabotaged his Jeep Cherokee I think? Then when they broke down out in the middle of nowhere they kidnapped his wife to get him to empty his bank account. He ended up hitching a ride on the guys semi truck back to the farm, saved his wife, but they had to make a run for it in a yellow 83 - 86 C20 with a service / tool body on it.

Some people are like Slinkies. Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs

The Hills Have Eyes has a nice early 90's Burb in it...gets wrecked though.  No Country For Old Men has tons of 70's trucks in it...GM, Ford, Dodge...plus lots of older cars too.

also an excellent movie without the vehicles if your into that sort of thing.
