Certainly nothing fast anymore... But I'm really enjoying the build process on this old thing.

1978 C10 Scottsdale
350/350 factory A/C truck
Pretty much 1 owner, bought from my dealership (W-K Chevy) When it was in cole camp, Mo in 1978.

It was restored in the 1990's, with all new GM sheet metal, a great paintjob, and absolutely no rust, driven till around 2001, then the motor popped and it was sold to a friend who had it in his barn until June of 2016 when I got it.

It had no motor when I got it, so I threw a 325 SBC in it, new brakes, new lines, new interior, sound deadening, new suspension with a 5/7 drop and a small notch. It has a small cam, holley carb, long tubes, stall and a shift kit now. I upgraded the steering with a close ration borgeson box and universal steering shaft, GIANT sway bars front and rear... it has NO lean.. lol pretty cool to drive. i put all new glass in it and ditched the rear slider window, all the paint ever needed was a good wash, did very little buffing and it cleaned up wonderfully, and I drive it nearly every day!

Still much more to do on it... need a locker, finish the interior with a dark brown seat since I did all saddle tan with the rest of the guts, redo the exhaust to tuck things up a little since it is so low. I got a trans crossmember that has hoops for the exhaust so I can tuck everything up a little better even with longtubes.

Anyhow, glad to be back!
