    Just bought my old 53 Panel back tonight. Here is a picture of it about 10 years ago in my old shop. Other then being painted now, looks just the same as it looked then. I'll post a current picture this week-end when I get it to the shop. :)

    That is very cool. You just cannot beat commercial green on the Advance Design trucks.

    Here are a couple shots of the 53.I have stuck in the back corner of a friends shop , so hard to get a good picture. Nice to get this one back after selling it 10 years ago. Not a color I'd paint it, but it's OK. Just remove the lettering on the doors tonight. Looks much better. I am very happy to have it back. :D

    They are bfg somethings... they were the stock rims and tire on the S10 I used. I buffed out the whitewalls and letters. I used tire paint to get them that big. I'm just running them till we get something better.

    Here is my old truck and it is a true 1948. It is the WZ JUNK (was junk) truck and that is its license plate. I have owned it for 22 years. This picture was taken many years ago at MOKAN when I was running slicks.

    I had made a convertible out of it but then I changed my mind and I welded the top back on and chopped it four inches. The tilt front end is fiberglass. I made the frenched headlights out of fiberglass and also the fiberglass front bumper. I made molds and made the fiberglass running boards.

    The bed has been made shorter by 8 inches and it has small wheel tubs. It is a modified S10 bed floor. Originally I built the truck pro street and it had the narrowed rear end and the big Mickeys on the rear.

    The frame is a Nova on the front, the original 48 under the cab and an S 10 from the cab back. It has a 400 small block and a 350 turbo transmission.

    I have been many miles in this truck and I have made many passes on the drag strip. It was the street rod shootout winner at the AHRA Reunion 4 times. My best time with street tires is 13.1.

    I built this truck while I was still working and with all of expenses of a family, I had very little money for a hot rod. I traded an old body grinder and a Vixen file for the original truck and I got the Nova for the sub frame for $25. I made lots of things for it that I would probably buy if I built it today.

    I have built and owned several of these trucks but I have always kept this one.

    John
