it's likely been a good 15 years since i had seen a 5.7 in a truck. been about two since i have seen a car with one. still on ocassion see a truck that had a 5.7 in it, but the gasser replaced it many moons ago. my dad bought a low mileage 81 model 1/2 ton in early 82. by the end of the year it started having all sorts of issues. by the end of 82 a 6.2 replaced it, best truck he or i have ever owned relibility/cost wise. still got it too... with the knowledge of the 5.7 i have learned over the years, i wouldnt mind having a clean olds 88 with one in it.

I don't currently have one, but I did own an 82 Caprice with the 5.7 Diesel. My first Diesel and my first car. It did well for living on the farm and having a teenager beat on it....

Most of the 5.7 Diesels on the road are in Caddys.
