Hi all.

First post, here's a pic of mine. This picture is the ad picture when I bought the truck. When the weather's better I'll get more this will be it for now.

OK. I've got two for ya! The red '80 was mine in Hawaii. The yellow one was one a won on ebay. The night I won the auction, it was stolen and wrecked...sigh. That's ok though, God worked it out with a 69 C-10.

I've referenced this one a couple times on this board already, so I may as well add it here. My pics from a Barrett-Jackson auction a few years back, but not my truck:

They came on as far as I know, the '67-'72 Chevy trucks. Maybe others also.

They are the 'sport' mirrors & were available through 87. I bought some of them (GM NOS) when i bought my 74. The 71-72 style are slightly different from the 73 & up style.

URECKME, are those holes in your finder? Looks like bullet holes. Other than that, looks like a nice truck. Where are you getting the 700R4? With that set up what RPM do you think you will be getting around 60mph?

^^ I believe those holes are actually from the originl trim.
