People might be willing to bid higher if he were donating a decent percentage. 1%....Come On Man....

If the original builder wanted that particular drivetrain, why not put it in the backseat and leave the rest of the car alone ???????

I guess it's still a truck. I has a complete 5.3 drivetrain.

I can't be the only idiot that digs this.

And he made a bicycle carrier without drilling into the bumper or tailgate...Okay...I gotta give you that as well...just so many option that the General never thought of for that year of truck....LOL...when I type out General...it came out Gerbal. Might still be spelled wrong but that's the only option I couldn't find....wait, the hoods open but no picture of whats underneath it...LOL

Wood running boards aernt uncommon on 70's street rod stuff, hoods open, and looks to be an LSx motor, I see a modern brake booster and master, its clearly on bags, I suspect there's some workmanship here that most wouldn't see lol.

The hood is open, brake booster is chrome, and the rad is to big to feed water to Gerbal's. I can appreciate you liking it and I'm sure a lot of hard work has gone into it...I'm just not a big fan. If you weren't a fan of something I liked...I can appreciate that too, to each their own. For me, I wouldn't want wooden running boards on anything I built...but that's just my opinion.

Yes I know it's bagged, but blow some air into the bags and let me see what it looks like as a drivable beast - then I'll comment on its looks.

FWIW - I generally prefer to see a car at "stock" or near-stock height. (my personal view - which I know is not shared by many!) Dropping/slamming/lowering etc is usually SO overdone - it's like seeing a chopped top where there is only about a 1/2 inch of glass left. To me it just looks stoopid!

The brake booster isn't chrome, its just standard GM fair, the rad is a gigantic alum unit. Look through the grill opening, its huge. I would almost bet its all sitting on a modern platform of some sort.
Hey, I get you don't like it, I drive a land yacht and the paint and vinyl are completely thrashed, and its gonna stay that way lol. Cause its how I like it. Some people get it, some don't. I'm OK with that.

My Friend Pete from SWRC is building a "donk stomper" custom. Can't wait to see that. Check his videos out on youtube and you'll hear him talk about it.

I like patina, but rust, and dents aren't my thing. I'm OK with well worn paint, and even some primer. But I just don't know why someone drives a vehicle forever and leaves the dents, rust holes, etc.
My vehicles aren't show rides, but I try to get around to paint sooner or later. This one may have to wait another year for paint, unless I can find a shop to borrow, and learn to shoot it myself!

I guess what it comes down to is that I can spend a ton of $$$$ on making it pretty or I can use the same $$$ to build another car. (I have never sold a rod yet, don't intend to start) - I'd rather build two drivable cars than have just one in glossy perfection. With that pickup, I would NOT have bagged and lowered it, I would not have lopped off the top - but I would have installed the "new" engine, the automatic trans, the 4 wheel disc brakes, the IFS and IRS, the air cond, the cruise control, the power windows & locks. And then drive it! Dents and rust vs perfect gaps and hand-rubbed paint do not have any impact on my enjoyment of it.

Guess I've never spent that much for paint, or built a car for that little!

Would this be a better choice 50 cnevy with a s10 frame bagged,6.0 LS and OD trans, probably the most expensive thing would be the wheel and tire combo,
this is a local truck Driven,,,,The way it should be. IMO I would love to own it
