I would love to say my first was a Dakota but, it was an S10. My father had a Dakota LE with a 5.2 mag and, my Chevy being a Chevy, I soon had to drive his truck to school. Shortly after my S10 died I saved up to buy a new vehicle. Along with my first motorcycle I decided to buy a 1996 Dodge dakota sport with a 3.9. I have now decided to turn it in to a "touring" truck following euro standards. It will have a few "look pretties" installed as well.
