Ol' Beatrice...

Here's my daily driver.... A '78 Chevy K30. I call her Beatrice. She's a stubborn ol' B.. at times but she is also one to get the job done. Yeah, she's not pretty like a lot of trucks on here. Yeah, she is rough. She gets it done though. Straight stock Custom Deluxe, 350, SM 465, NP 205, running 4.10 gears. Doesn't even have a dome light Still, she gets me to work every day and she does decent on gas. I can run a month off that left tank in town, pulls 16 on the highway. I am slowly working on fixing her up as I go. Oh, and I only paid $500 for her... running... Second picture is me the day I bought her. Sharing because all the fixed up pretty trucks get noticed, why not her?

Re: Ol' Beatrice...

Tougher than a bag of hammers and wears it like a badge of honor. I like.
Still getting it done.

I'm kinda like duct tape- no real purpose, but handy to have around.

Re: Ol' Beatrice...

It's faded but under the seat the full beauty of that color still shines. I need to take some pictures of that and post it up because it really is sharp.

Re: Ol' Beatrice...

That's awesome I like it as well nothing beats an old working beast of a chevy or gmc truck. I bet that color looked really clean back in the day!
