What??? This isn't supposed to happen. I just enter, I never win anything. Now I win something with my old junk! :confused:.....................:lol:

I guess it wasn't a beauty contest this time. The GMC really does do work for me. One day I'll restore it, but she's such a good workhorse. When I got it in '01 it was all over the road and needed exhaust, a few other things including interior stuff. I just got all that right and started using it here and there. Next thing I know it had racks on it and since '14 it has been the only pickup I have. It hasn't needed much along the way and it has become my keeper, my forever truck.

Thanks for the votes. I never checked because there were other good candidates. I was surprised this morning to see I won. So thanks again.

I had those white powder coated 9.75 x 16.5s since the '80s. I had one pair I got from the guy I started out subcontracting siding from in '82 or '83. They were off the '72 C/30 w/utility body he bought new. he ran 8.25s on the front. I used to see that truck when I was in HS and loved it, "The White Truck". The truck was gone but he still had those wheels. I went to a commercial wheel & rim business and bought the other pair. I just painted those white, then black, then argent. That first set had more offset, so eventually I bought a second pair at the same place. They went from one '71 K/20 to the other. When I retired the second '71 K/20 they were on, I had them blasted and powder coated gloss black for the '84 I got in '89. When I bought the '72 K/20 Cheyenne Super Custom Camper in '91 I had them blasted again and done gloss white. Then in '01 when I got this GMC, because the Chevy was under restoration, they went onto it. Those wheels have a story for sure. I have nice hubcaps for the truck now, but they won't go on until it gets restored some day. I want another set of 10", but I think I'll do those gloss black w/o hubcaps, like I had on the '84. The caps with go on the 8" wheels it has now, once they get powder coated. I might have a wheel fetish :rolleyes: (but that's normal, right?)
