    I'd 'dirty up' and take the shine off everything under the hood. Dull and rusty steel rims, mis-matched black walls, maybe some dented hubcaps. I prefer the 'neglected and abandoned' look in my sleepers.

    Your car looks cross eyed with no head light trim rings.
    Only bad thing I can say.




    I would like to take your car out on a date and take advantage of it on a lonely stretch of highway :D
    That thing looks like a blast !!!

    I have been thinking of a roof rack. It will probably happen. Also, I am not going to clear it. I didn’t clear the 34 either

    I know. I think I’ve got a guy who has some. Will find out in 2 weeks. Crossing my fingers. I didn’t want to buy new. And it is wicked on the highway. I got 2.83 gears in the rear end. It gets on average 26 mpg, and when you want to go, it goes. Awesome comment by the way. Hilarious . And thanks for the feed back, much appreciated

    Sleepers are so much fun! Had an OT s10 with a 350/350 and 9 in. Back before it got common, what fun.

    I had lowering blocks like that on a 40 chevy with some horsepower and the pinion hit the floor. I had to add upper torque arms. I love the car!!

    I'm not a fan of patina, but I don't think I would paint that car. Like someone else said; I would find some headlight rings, and maybe a Chevy emblem for the hood. Cool car!

    Paint it. Put some wide whites on it, THEN surprise the boy racers.

  26. Same thing; put together a long bed S10 with fiberglass topper, steel wheels and caps. Daily driver, my wife used to like to drive it just for the fun of surprising the other drivers.
