The Goodguys 13th Colorado Nationals

The show wasn't filled with traditional-style trucks only. A great example of the quality of contemporary commercials is Greg and Julie Panosh's cutting-edge '53 Chevy. The couple's fantastic five-window is powered by an equally contemporarily dressed 496-cube big-block backed by a TH400 automatic.

Heck, even the so-called Car Corral had some nice classic trucks for sale too. This is the way to go for those of us who don't have the time or the inclination to build one from the ground up.

And now for something completely different ... How's a pristine '72 Chevy C-40 custom grab ya? I can honestly say this was a first for me-but one I really enjoyed checking out. Mike Marchich displayed his talents by restoring this 427-cube/Allison automatic-powered big boy much to the delight of lots of admirers-me included.

As you might have noticed, I've got a thing for black suede. Well, we all have our weaknesses and mine just happens to be non-glare finishes. That said (another one for ya, Geoff), Justin Gurule's neat black and red '68 C-10 sure got my attention.

Here's another classic truck I see too few examples of. Don Reynolds' flat-front '66 A-100 is a body style (as is Ford's E-100 Econoline) that really turns my crank, so to speak. I've owned more than one Econoline in my day but have never had the opportunity to get my hands on an A-100. Reynolds' baby sports a powerful 360/727 combo as well as a near flawless finish and lots of attention to detail.

Speakin' of trucks I'd like to see in my driveway ... Bill Sykes' bitchin '52 F-1 fits my tastes perfectly-black suede, cream accents, and some cool old-school pinstriping are the perfect touches for a no-nonsense hot rod pickup. Nice ride Bill.

When it comes to classic trucks I can't pass up the many street rod trucks that are present at all Goodguys gatherings. Though they're a bit out-of-bounds yearwise for full coverage in CLASSIC TRUCKS (don't ask me why, because I don't know) I'm not about to pass 'em by when it comes to show coverage. Jerry Smith's beautiful '34 Ford closed-cab is a great example of a traditional-style hot rod-right down to its white tuck 'n' roll, Merc hubcaps, and dirt track-style nerfs.

Rick and Patty Thomas' '64 C-10 shortbed Fleetside is one of my favorite trucks of the show, and I can't believe I had to travel to the Denver area to see a cool classic truck that's home is but 40 miles from my own down in SoCal! The Hesperia, California, based Chevy ain't no slouch either-Rick has stuffed the engine compartment with 572 cubes of pure muscle and then backed it with a fully massaged TH400 and a Dana 60 rearend. Keep your eyes peeled for a full-on color feature on this baby in the near future!

You don't run across many GMCs these days, and even fewer that are as nice as Alonzo Mestas' eye searing yellow '53. This Finest Five pick has been treated to a complete rodstoration including a fully powdercoated frame equipped with a Mustang II-style IFS, an 8-inch Ford rear held in place with four-bar/coilover rear suspension. Budnik billet wheels, a ZZ4 small-block/TH350 combination, and four-wheel disc brakes are just some of the upgrades this cool GMC has received.

Some of you may recall seeing Jerry Schwab and Rona Pantano's '58 F-100 as a feature truck in a past issue of CLASSIC TRUCKS (though to be honest I didn't)-but I sure didn't miss it this weekend! The couples eye-catching Ford has been in the family since it was purchased new back in '58. The original frame has been updated with a Heidts IFS setup, four-wheel disc brakes, and a muscular 351 Windsor. This Finest Five pick was built as a tribute to Rona's father, Rocco Pantano, and we're sure he approves of the couple's efforts even more than we do.

Not only did Jim and Sue Lamb's Fort Collins, Colorado, based flamed and 426 Hemi-powered '56 F-100 garner a prestigious Finest Five pick but unfortunately it qualified for a Hard Luck Award as well. You see Jim had built this fine F-100 years ago and has driven the wheels nearly off of it during that time-well, on his way to the winner's circle on Sunday morning the huge Hemi decided that it needed some attention so it grenaded its harmonic balancer. Bad timing to say the least, but the couple took it in strides and rather than spend the afternoon hangin' out with fellow Finest Five winners they fixed up that Hemi instead.

Josh and Shawna Carlson's over-the-top, full-custom '55 Chevy is a shoo-in for a Finest Five pick if there ever was one. Josh performed a myriad of custom touches himself in his home shop, including pancaking and radiusing the hood, rounding all the door corners, shaving the driprails and door handles, and fabricating countless other portions of the truck-including its awesome floating grille bar. He also integrated the exhaust tips into the bedside steps, and designed and fabricated the custom bed assembly with its electrically powered motorized trunk, which rises up from the cargo box. This is one truck I could go on and on about, but instead of doing that here I'll save it for a future full-on color feature, so stay tuned.
