From This, to this photo-shopped "Shop Truck" and what it really looks like Today. I'm the 3rd owner. This truck was built at the Fremont California GM plant and is a local Arizona truck.

Thank you. Your truck is really good looking as well, the first picture if it werent for your dog in the back i would guess it to be one of those life like paintings. Looks almost too good to be really with the way photos were take. Thanks for the feedback on mine its a love it or hate it truck it seems i love it though lol.

Re: Post you patina trucks!!!!!! Real or fake post your weathered beauties!

Aw man- I feel like I just got called on to speak from a podium!

I need to hit the truck with CLR and see if I can find some more blue under the rust....



The front is pretty beat up but I have an excellent NOS grille, a new insert and a new front bumper on standby!



My local friend Kasey has got a nice patina on his 66 too-





(mines been dropped 3" front and back since these pics)



And finally- how she patiently sits right now- waiting for the heart transplant and a bunch of love!!!!

Its going to look a whole lot different in the next few weeks to months. My wife said my box of The Truck Shop parts finally came in and I just ordered $600 worth of engine stuff at Summit today. Going to start bringing parts to the machine shop and talk to my body shop guys about fixing the front fenders, rockers and cab corners (all below the lower molding so I can keep the rest of the paint). A busy winter should make for a fun spring/summer though!

Pretty sweet, the only hiccup I see is the primer colors aren't like factory. Cab would be red oxide and everything else would be black. Sweet truck for sure though!
