    You guys never fail to disappoint. This is seriously the funniest thing I have seen in awhile.
    I propose a new segment called “movie scenes re-hooned”
    Bravo Mr. Idiot, bravo!

    Is it just me or does the driver look potentially younger than the impending hit-and-run victim?

    If I was the Pick-up Truck Whisperer, I'd think the truck was saying: "I can get him, 10 points, Come on!"

    I used to do bad things like that to my little brothers, too. Except I used to tow them around on mini bike frames with wheels but no brakes behind my trail bike. It's amazing that they survived the scientific abuse I heaped upon them. Put your little brother on one, tow him as fast as a Chaparral 100CC will go, then jump a ditch and see what the minibike frame he's riding on at the end of the rope will do to him when it gets to the ditch. Snatches it out from under him and he faceplants into the mud bank. Great stuff. It's amazing that they still talk to me.

    I love the orange lettering in the grille. How is it that 42 years have gone by and very few pickups have had styling as good or better as that generation of Chevy?

    It's a real clean, great look, I'll agree. But, I kinda prefer the earlier style. Look at my picture thingy, the early sixties Chevies had some style. Jet Age, man, angular stuff. The '68's and 9's like that truck had some nice lines, but the previous ones had some real personality. The Chevy trucks of the sixties were very cool, probably better than the Fords but not as simple and rugged. The Chevy suspension was vastly superior, but the three speed trans didn't have synchro in the first gear. Just an example. Both are legendary trucks, and it's interesting to have an example of both from the same period and to be able to compare them to each other.

    What is it about orange Chevies…?
    Although I'd prefer a K5, myself.

    Orange lettering is my own touch when I redid the grille's paint. But the 67-72 C/K trucks are damn near perfection in my opinion.

      This one most definitely is. Nice ride!

    Neat pic…I think the only thing that would have made it more sinister is if you would've had your nearly world famous orange headlights on instead of the regular headlights…but I still approve!

    Clean truck. Do we get build details?

      Here's my brief overview from a comp I entered:
      Bought it in the beginning of 2007 for $500 bucks, and a week later dragged it home and parked it. For two years it's home was my dad's drive way. So long so that it is on google maps and street view Late that year, I had found an engine and transmission for $750, a 'rebuilt' small block 350, and a rebuilt TH350 trans. Paid for it friday, painted it saturday morning, and it was running by that evening. That Christmas broght a slew of parts to get the drivetrain fairly finished. Over the course of the next year though, not much happened. I had a second car, the SlowBird, and was just trying to save money. But, when it came down to it, I had one choice. Sold the Firebird for 2 grand, and went to work for the 2 week xmas break to get'r'done. With a 2 grand budget it was just enough to get things done. Disk brakes parts from a 73-87 C10 "heavy halfton" were used including the spindles, calipers, ball joints, and brake lines to convert the front from drums to disks. The disks are custom made 6 lug versions. This was the most taxing part of the build, 40 year old truck suspension was nothing but trouble to take apart, what a late model truck would maybe take an hour to do, took several days. And I now hate any suspension work to this degree. It was also dropped initially 3in front and 5 rear, but the rear was raised to a 3in drop for some axle clearance (this is still a truck, and it still works like one) Then attention was paid to finishing everything under hood. Engine wiring, various fuel and coolant lines were done properly. The 40oz Corona glass overflow bottle for the rad was placed. New accessory fuse block and wiring were added to keep the new things we added out of the stock harness. The gauge cluster was painted, rebuilt, and added an '05 Cadillac Escalade clock. All of the garbage wiring done to the truck was redone and the electrics of the truck restored. Interior consists of 1st gen S10 seat belts, and 08 Silverado seats, with welded supports for all new bolt holes. New radio and speakers were added, apart of the new wiring process. Head lights were in finally, and the truck began to look like a truck for the 1st time! Every day from the moment I woke up til I went to sleep was spent on it during those two weeks. And by the end of the brake, I took it for it's first drive. Just a little run to burnish in the brakes and get a little test run in. It needed some odds and ends done, but on Febuary 5th, 2009, tag inspected and taxed, I drove it home and the CST10 was a road worthy machine. Not with out a few quirks, but as to be expected. Currently awaiting body work and a cab swap, and of course, mo' speed. Currently my daily driver with several thousands of miles put on since last febuary. A total joy to drive, and a unique experience with other people make this one of the best experience/decisions/money pits of my life so far.

    I pretty much knew about the majority of of this, but even so, I still think it is informative. Nice work!
