I got this truck when I was 16 for $600. It served me then as a daily driver, and it still is up to this day. I've driven it while doing all work, including paintwork. Speaking of which, this is my first job of body/paintwork, and it has paid off since I've won 5 trophies with it.
Here it is in it's gaudy stock form. It wasn't that bad, it was just totalled since it was a theft recovery that wasn't recovered right away.
Interior done in two tone leather.
Version 1, complete with 15" Edelbrock wheels. This is how I drove it all through high school. It was awesome at the time. I now look back and think to myself "damn that's a lot of red".
Here is my Sport Truck mention for being a "low buck" buildoff runner-up. I think I lost because I wasn't colorful enough. That will change.
New wheels. 17" American Racing Torque Thrust II's.
So here is the first photoshop I ever did of my plans.
How it looks today! Did this spur of the moment weeks before Truckin Nationals. Worked on it till 5am the morning of the show. Took home a best in class trophy!
Spring plans call for a TPI smallblock. I will update this page as I work on this truck.
