Chevrolet wants to know if you have an old truck — probably not hooptyfied, Fred Sanford-style wheels but a good ol’ Chevy Silverado with 200,000 or more miles. If your pickup qualifies, you can put it into the Silverado 200,000 Mile Club, which is way higher than you have to go for the mile-high club (we have the rules for that in our pocket, if you want to get them). The GM brand has hired some “journalists” to drive across country in their ’06 Silverado and find those old-time Silverados and their drivers and blog about them at a Web site, www.trans-americas.com. If you’d rather avoid the media, just log in at www.chevy.com/200k and save some mental space for Sept. 29, which is when Chevy will pull the tarp off the ’07 Silverado at the Texas State Fair.
