1945 Chevrolet 1/2 Ton
across your site the other day and have enjoyed looking at pic's of the
oldies! I would really enjoy seeing my "resto-rod" added to the gallery.
Except for some welding on the front end and exhaust system, I did all
of the work on it myself outside in a carport (complete tear down and rebuild).
What a blast! My wife and/or I drive it at least once every week
to participate in parades, cruises, shows and just because.
I have just published a web
site with some commentary about and pictures of my pickup.
