Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Short Beds

looks like it was nearly finished , too bad you didnt held on to it .
then again my father used to own a first gen corvette (you know the ones with the white sides the teeth in the grille and the 6 cylinder ) my mother made him get rid of it when she got tired of having two kids sitting on her lap , that car wouldve been worth a fortune now

i got a job again and having fun at it too

idea's for the trucks and the order of things to do are taking shape and get closer to being realized , a few more months and i be able to start building for real

i complete 2 of the trucks intoo running fashion one custom and one basicly stock the thirth will be sacrificed for parts

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Short Beds

all it needed was a new dash pad and to fix the AC. otherwise everything else was NEW. that and a new motor after I did a little sat night drag racing with locals and started a knock.. that's why I traded it off.. guy came to me with a custom slammed El Camino and I took it. DOHHH!!! LOL

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Short Beds

Yeah you'll always regret selling that truck. I feel the same way on my old one, but take the enjoyment of building them and having someone else enjoy them too. That's the thought I kept having. I never really understood why my uncle, and cousin could build these awesome cars, trucks, and street rods, and then just sell them. Then my uncle told me one time that his enjoyment is watching the car transform from start to the finish. Then when it's done he gets bored with it because he wants to work on something else.
