Offroad 1979 K10 SWB

  • I call my truck "The Price Is Right" for a couple of reasons. First off, I traded a friend's father for it. I fixed his wife's Pontiac, he gave me this truck. The second reason is because I am sourcing as much of this build as possible from either junkyards or classifieds or parts trucks, etc. I work hard for my dollars, and have a family to support, so most of the modifications on this truck are opportunistic in nature and everything is done by me. I am not paying anybody to work on this.

    That being said, somethings are better purchased new, sometimes you just can't skimp on the good stuff.
