Postby rdmac » Sun Jul 09, 2006 9:13 pm

as you know i work for a hotrod shop, well i just got back from columbus,oh this afternoon after going to the goodguys nationals car and truck show. i think 48-72 or74 and i didn't see not 1 bumpside there. i guess that just go to say we rather drive them than make show trucks of them. strange tho, over 5,000 there.

If and when I get mine done I want it to be both. Daily driver and show quality. When I was younger I met a gentleman that had a very nice show quality chevy truck that he used to haul bricks. He always said that if you were going to buy a truck then use it as one. I agree!

Yaw no bumps. I'm planning on going to the street rod nats at Lewyvull. I'm not expecting to see bumps. I see more rusty ones still working on the streets rather then showing, wich is good.
