    I know I know I know. Some of you may hate that it's bagged. Some of you may think the wheels are too big. I built the truck, the way I wanted to. Not by some set of rules or guidelines. I hope most of you enjoy.


    1957 Chevy Truck
    305 Tuned Port - 700r4
    Camaro subframe
    4 linked in the back
    Bagged all the way around


    Here are two first pics of it sitting outside. More will come.

    Nice truck! put some smaller wheels on it, and some springs in it, and it'll be perfect

    Looks neat with the 57 hood and 55 grille

    I don't like how people knock other people's rides because it's not how they would have done it. Your truck is bad as F**k and it happens to be my style. You got great taste by my standards. good job

    It is a true 57 truck, but I have always liked the 55-56 grilles better.

    It doesn't even have 2 miles on it yet. Took me about 2 years working on and off to finish it. There isn't a nut or bolt that I haven't taken off.

     
  11. Nice truck - 'cept for the bags and big wheels ................

    I love it- Don't change a thing!
     
  14. Truck looks good. Neighbor looks good too. Sucks about the cop across the street. No burnouts in the court for you.

    He his actually pretty cool. A few months back a friend of mine bought a new camaro and let me drive it....his mistake. I took it out and did a couple doughnuts and the cop just laughed.

    I really like it, even with those wheels, totally menacing.
    The 57 car hood peaks are a nice touch.
    I'd like to see it on Supremes n skinny whites just cause im sick, but real nice.

    I took 1 3/4 out of the center of the front bumper and sucked into the body. The grille, bumper, hl bezels, firewall and dash are all painted the same. DBC base cloat with a satin clear. Kind of a bronze tinted charcoal.

    Unfortunately I did not take very many pictures of the build, but I will post what I have.
