Sweet little diecast '72 C10, and I had to mess with it!

I got this '72 C10 Cheyenne at the Houston Autoshow. Its a pretty sweet one, but the truck rides too high, and the rims were too big.


Notice the ground clearence

So, I got it home, and tore into another old diecast model (a beautiful 30s Chevy coupe, sadly got huge scratches when moving. It was based off the West Coast Choppers one. Amazing detail), and stole it's wheels, and some other parts for looks:


Used the 2nd set of axle holes to lower it too:





The engine and drivetrain parts from the other model:

Gun control, the theory that 110lb. women have the "right" to fistfight with 210lb. rapists.

The reason animal rights activists are more passionate about fur than leather is because it's safer to harrass rich women than bikers...

thats not a dazed and confused one, it's one of the dubs... you can foind them on e-bay in stock or slammed. The real good looking ones are far and few between.
Here's a couple I sold recently;

Awesome.I like how you unblinged it.The parts in bed are a great touch.I had to put aluminum slots on my Dazed & Confused 1/25th model.Now,I have an authentic looking one.I almost didn`t get one because they used the`90s Chevy looking wheels until a light bulb lit up over my head.

True that. The fit and finish, and details on these often times suck. I had a sweet Cadillac El Dorado until the trim kept falling off... then proceeded to propelling the Cadillac via bottle rockets and twist ties.
