As always, the last area to be finished was the interior. Now, sometimes this is where the wheels fall off a project-the cash crunch hits-shortcuts are taken and in the rush to see the project finished, the interior is treated as an evil necessity. Well not on this truck. This one got the full treatment. There's a hand-built center console, a smoothed dash, an instrument panel full of Auto Meter instruments, built-in A/C vents, built-in audio speakers, and a few handmade aluminum trim pieces to complement the fresh tan upholstery and high-end wool carpet.
As Bob and the guys at Getz's like to say, "It's an example of a simple handtools required kind of job." Of course, three years labor and a sack of cash helped a lot.
Along the way the truck gained the "Cin Bad" name. Bob's wife's name is Cindy and the paint color is Cinnamon, so the Cin seemed right and a blown 400 is without question Bad. So there it is...Cin Bad. Along with a name it also picked up some awards at a couple of Goodguys shows and has made one 800-mile freeway-flying round trip. So it's not just another pretty face, which is why Cin is really Bad in the best of ways.
