Hello from Waco TX!

Hello. My name is Shelby Terry, but If you wanna be my friend you have to call me Nighthawk! :P

I am currently a student at Texas State Technical College. I am getting a degree in Automotive Tech.

This past week I traded a old project, a 1977 Chevy Caprice Landau coupe, for this 1949 5 window.

It is currently sitting on a 91 S10 Chassis and powertrain.
It's got a little rust, but isn't too bad in all honesty.

My first goal is to get the cab and bed properly mounted on the chassis.

I look forward to seeing the builds here, getting inspiration and learning more about these trucks.

Thanks for the welcome.
It's not too much worse than my last project was when I got it.
I'm eager to get cracking on it a bit more. I've got big aspirations for this truck.
