C10 Nation, Yellowstone and the One That Got Away

I started listening to Ronnie Wetch’s C10 Talk Podcast a while back and it’s very informative and enjoyable.

As a result I looked up Ronnie’s brilliant custom 1973 C20 Cheyenne Super 3+3 crew cab long bed, with the camper installed this thing is enormous!

There is a great article on the truck here from the RideTech website here

All this stuff reminds me of a few years ago when we were visiting Country Classics in Staunton IL during one of our US visits, as you can see the truck was really nice and the price probably even nicer at $5950! Sadly I didn’t pull the trigger….

As you can also see there was a nice red 78 Silverado at $9350

What a real shame this is, the Biscayne was the owners first car and the condition showed the amount of work he’d had lovingly put into the car. Not only was the Hellcat driver drunk, but I’m pretty sure it will be the tip of the iceberg in terms of too much car and not enough driving ability around the latest generation of muscle cars…

Got to feel bad for the owner of the Biscayne, as you can imagine the insurance probably won’t pay out.

On the upside the Hellcat may be crushed!

1965 Corvair Monza Convertible Project

 

This 1965 Corvair convertible is claimed to run, but obviously needs some work. It is hard to determine just how much work from the photo, but if it’s solid and complete, it might be worth a look. This Monza is located in the Bay area and is still wearing black plates, so it is possible that the tin worm has not gotten to it. $1,250 takes it here on craigslist. Thanks to Robert J. for the submission.

My Chevy S10 Xtreme

This is my Chevy S10 Xtreme that I’ve now had for a couple of years, not imported by me, purchased from a nice couple in Penzance.

I’ve changed out the Lexus style rear lights for a set of LED based units with side marker lights from LMC Truck in the States.

The load bed has also been coated with Line-X which I think has improved the look as the bed was pretty scratched.

I’ve got the original invoice for the vehicle which I obtained via the excellent GM Heritage Centre. The truck was originally supplied to a dealer called Schramm & Cox in Wentzville Missouri, you can see the options in the picture gallery. Some of the options that you would perhaps expect aren’t present such as, power windows and locking.

The previous owner had installed 20″ rims with spacers, I’m trying to locate a set of the original alloys to put it back to stock, These I think will have to come from the States.

As you can see it’s in pretty good nick, I eventually purchased a good quality cover imported from the States to protect it as it lives outside, the cheap covers just fell to pieces!

The cover was purchased from Ultimate Finish here in the UK, and the truck is featured here on their website,

Sarah at Ultimate was very helpful with the sourcing and supply of the cover.
