I generally go to bed around 12:00 am, call anytime you need help. I've got my phone off when I'm getting my beauty rest. It doesn't help, but I keep trying.

Re: My Daughters First Truck

Cool project and even cooler doing it with your daughter. My youngest is 14 And I had a 66 step side but she is too short to drive it. We are looking for something to work on over the summer that she can reach the pedals and see over the dash. She is only 4"6'' a little vertically challenged. Keep her interested in that truck and you guys will always remeber these times

Re: My Daughters First Truck

Funny you say that. My oldest daughter is 20 and she's 4'9" and she won't even try Darrah's truck she complains when she has to drive my Sonoma

Re: My Daughters First Truck

She sat in a GEO Tracker and can reach everything and likes the idea of taking the top off this summer. If anyone has one of these let me know..has to be automatic. Not as cool as a Chevy truck but it will be good on gas.

Re: My Daughters First Truck

Awesome to see this. A friend of mine just gifted me a '66 C10 LWB. Surprisingly my 15 year old son has gotten really excited about fixing this up for him to drive. I talked him into us flat blacking it and making it look old school.

Re: My Daughters First Truck

Little update.
Last month Darrah and I were selling some stuff at the swap meet at the Super Chevy Show and Darrah did some trading with another guy selling there and scored a nice old Firestone bike.
She has also been saving and bought a couple things. A working radio and a set of port-a-walls.

I know a lot of folks are not fans of the port-a-walls,
So please do not post negative comments here.

Thanks, David

Re: My Daughters First Truck

This is awesome, It is great to see Darrah right in there sanding and grinding! This truck will mean so much more to her than just a vehicle.

I just found out that my uncle is going to be giving me his 1975 Honda enduro motor cycle that will be a common installation in the bed as well. That Firestone bike is awesome!

Re: My Daughters First Truck

nothing negative because i like whitewalls myself...back when i had my '93 C-1500, i was contemplating running Port-a-walls to add to the old school theme i had...however, many folks told me it simply won't work well with radial tires....not sure if ya'll are running them on radials, but i would definitely be interested in knowing how it works out for ya
