From Mario :

           This is "The Hotrod." It's a 1953 Chevrolet 3100. It has a 350 / 350 with automatic transmission. It has disc brakes all around, power steering. It has a Firebird rear end but still running the straight axle.

           The truck has been lowered by removing leafs all the way around.

           I installed a sway bar in front to improve the handling. I painted the flames one weekend just to see if I could paint flames. Then I had a local pin striper outline them for me.

           I also built the center console to install a stereo so I didn't have to butcher the dash.

           Some other pictures: interior / under the hood / head on .
