I did the above header back in about 1999. It blended into the background. I decided to just keep in and add it to this page.
2010 - Anyone seen this truck or know the whereabouts of it, I'd like to hear about it.
I sold this back in 2001 and just wondering what happened to it.
The below links are OLD. Some work some do not. I did this back in about 2000 and just left it the way it was.
I bought this truck back in 1989 as a stepside from my brother-in-law. Since then, I have done quite a bit of work including adding the short-bed fleetside bed which is rust free. I bought a clean tailgate and added a new front panel. This is a frame-up truck which was completed in '95. It has very low miles since completion. It rides low, and straight. It also has 4 wheel power disc brakes. This is a *great* cruising-show truck. I take it out about once every 3 weeks. Been to the Street Machine Nationals, Slamfest and other shows. It is an all metal truck except for the front fenders (I still have the original metal one's stored in a shed! Even thought this truck was completed in '95, this truck still looks *EXCELLENT*. I am an auto painter by trade. I did all the paintwork, so this is very quality job.
I am located in the Clearwater, Florida area.
