    WASNT GOOD ENOUGH!??????????????????
    I couldnt believe I read that correctly. Buy that man a real ceegar and give him a place at the head of the table. W.L. indeed,, Mister W.L.
    BTW, that radiator looks like it would cool off hell itself.
     
  2. Man this truck is so cool. There went a lot of work into this one!

    "Not good enough" is what keeps a lot of people away from attending car shows. W.L. was
    able to spend some time at last years SK500 and he saw the importance the social part of
    our show. He had a blast last year. This year he will be floored with the reaction his truck
    will receive.

    Happy Trails, Mick

    LOVE that loader radiator.. sure it's large enough to keep that engine cool? ... HA!

    Man.. that is one of the sweetest Chebbies I've seen.. stance is awesome and love the history behind the interior. Regardless of what else happens to the truck that interior diamond tuck needs to be preserved.. such a cool story and thread! Thanks for posting!

    Wowsers!
    Great story, great truck, great custom eye. And he did the diamond button-tuck interior himself. Geez!
    Give him our warm regards for a job well-done.

    Well after new plugs a new battery an The removal of approximately 2 gal of h2o from the tank the truck breaths again. I drove the truck about 2 miles an it drives great the mass of wind smaking me in the face wasnt kool but it was still an awsome experience to roll down the blacktop in such a Badd Truck. The truck has a 400 Pontiac which aided in the tire smoke an black marks left in my shop as i slowly pulled away like John Force. Yep it hauls! SK500 here We come. Aaron
     
  19. pictures dont do this truck justice i was speechless when i saw the truck the other day

    all one shade. The truck is bad ass can't wait to see it when it leaves Rods shop.

    Happy Trails, Mick
     
  21. THANK YOU Mr. W.L. for building such a fantastic looking truck and you guys for getting it back out in the light of day so the rest of us can admire his craftmanship.

    Inspiring and completely COOL story about a great builder and his truck is the cat's whiskers too.

    Thank you.

    Yea, saw those golden gloves and thought the same thing. That picture is great.
    What an absolutely cool story, cool truck and most of all cool dude. You guys really rock for helping WL get his custom on the road. Lot of good heart going on there.
