So I sold the '70 C10 I had for just about 10 years and bought an '86 C10. The old one was just to much work to keep up for running around town for truck stuff and this '86 had such a clean body for its age. I am going to paint it up in the spring when it gets warm again.

I already sanded down the old steelies and painted them up. It's got a 350 from a late 70's Camaro and a three speed that has been moved to the floor. I just rebuilt the quadajet and plan on putting an aluminium intake I have from a 70's Vette. I need to get headers on it soon too since one has a small hole and make it sound like poo.

Too bad it's a long bed. Still cool though.

I wanted a long bed, I am going to use it for chores around the house. Gotta be able to get full sheets of drywall in her.
