Wow, I can't beleive how many historians we have. Also how many of them are eagar to educate the rest of us.
Perhaps I should revise my restoration theme.
To clarify, I am not looking for West Coast Customs appearing truck. Not that there's anything wrong with that but in my opinion these trucks look best in a more Classic form. I say Classic form because I feel strongly that they should be updated to drive safely on today's roads which I think by definition isn't "Classic" (disk brakes, updated suspension, LED lighting, etc).
To me the Classic form means 15" steel wheels, fat white wall tires, a color that is solid and fairly common.
So however you want to "term" that theme...that's what I am going for!
Build it however it pleases you, call it whatever you'd like if you need a name for it. That's what this hobby is all about. I was just trying to say that there is a romanticized version and the true story, just like people think the old west was all Bonanza, Billy the Kid, or Wyatt Earp.
Passionate about autocross racing!
