From Shawn :

           This is my 1966 Chevy C-10 Fleetside.

           Where to begin? I live in Lake Charles, Louisiana and I purchased this truck from a local garage. The owner had just begun to work on it before giving in to the pressure of a restoration project.

           This truck was a diamond in the ruff as it still needed plenty of work on the body and under the hood. I have owned it for one and a half years. It took about eight months to get it right.

           The truck is equipped with a 350 overdrive engine with Elderbrock package, 750 transmission, 650 Elderbrock carbo, power steering, duel Flow Master pipes, disc breaks, air shocks, updated belt driven pulleys, and air and heat.

           The seat was re-wrapped in black leather and trimmed in red with the Chevy bowtie stamped in [ image ] , and toped off with buttons from an old Cutlass.

           The carpet is black [ image ] and the dash [ image ] and its components are original and are complimented by the DVD / CD / Navi unit [ image ] I installed.

           I always wanted to own a classic and looked at a lot before I saw this truck and it was love at first site. I spent many nights in the dog house and my wife named this truck Frankenstein because she thought it was a money monster early on. I liked the name because now that it is in mint condition, it is a beast. Frankenstein is a dream come true and I love to drive it so much it has become my everyday driver.

           This truck was complete when the candy color fall maple effect was sprayed on, and heads turn as I roll by.
