Hey fellas (and ladies). I've always been an admirer of classic cars, hot rods, and customs as my buddies have grown up around them, one friend has a 72 Chevelle, another has a 55 Chevy 5-window pickup and a 69 Camaro, and another (well... his dad) has a various assortment of old muscle cars, but I've never actually had my own... I started saving up my money and started searching for affordable project vehicles that were in repairable shape (for a newbie)... specifically looking for a truck. Found one on craigslist, drove about 4 hours to go look at it (took a trailer in case i decided to get it), test drove it, looked it over, and bought a 1954 Chevy 3100 Short bed Stepside on the spot... They were asking $4800, and they came down quite a bit (cash talks!) Great Birthday gift to myself!! Enjoy some pictures! Loading it on the trailer (not the original bed... obviously, think its off a 77?) Looks good back there! (there's a year original bed... for fixing up.) Almost home... Interior Seats, and rubber floor mats out! Little wire brushing done!
