Hotrod trucks rule!!!

49 to 54 is a good style. they got the head lights on the fenders the way they do and look sick, 55 to 57s are also awsomeespecialy the step side cause they look like bigger sedans. a lot of guys like 58 and 59 with thfleet side but I cant get into the dual head lights. 60 through 63 have the wrap around wind shield which can get expensive and i dont think looks all that good or bad, in 64,65,66 the had the a pillar come down and eliminate the wrap around, those ones I think for that body style would be the best. and the 67-72's are cool but I think without a chop and a role pan and a buch of stuff they dont go that far. latley Ive been searching for the 65,64 or the 55-57. mid eighties look good to I guess. no matter what you get. a chop top wouldent hurt.

Choice, love, and follow through

Yeah well I disagree, while agreeing ....?

I mean the 55 is awesome and one of my favorites, but nobody should ever buy a project because of someone else's opinion!

In order to follow through on a long term project, other than for profit motives, your motivation will come from loving the style and picture in their mind of what it could look like in the end.

Setting goals and following through to the end requires dedication, motivation, de-rustification and restification

..........just finishing up after 6 1/2 years!

I agree with that! I'm partial to the tri-5 stepsides. I'm 2 years into my resto-mod, and am just finishing the metal work. Check out my photo album for evidence of the insanity. It's cheap therapy though! Pick your favorite and go to town on it!
