Kevin and John wanted to do something a little different in the back. Kevin decided he didn't want a roll pan, but there where not many options either on how to finish up the rear. John suggested combining two bumpers molded into one. "So, just like that, John had me going home to get one of the two front bumpers I had and buying another from Jim's Chevrolet," Kevin says. "Two days later, I'm looking at what looked like a big old Caddy bumper resting under the truck. It looked great, and I finished the rear off with Lokar LED taillights." Ron at American Pastimes helped with the Vintage Air, which was for a Bel Air car. With the Bel Air dash in the truck cab, and a few modifications like smoothing the cowl, Kevin says, "We had just enough room to stuff the whole unit with only about 1/2 inch off the bottom being seen. John cut A/C vents in the lower center of the dash. The curve came in when I said to John, 'Why don't we put the A/C vents in the doors like most later-model cars and eliminate having to use aftermarket vents under the dash." The original gas tank was switched out for a rear bed frame-mounted tank by No Limit Engineering that made room for the Premier 10-inch subwoofer.
This truck has a lot more to be said about it, but we no longer have room to put it all in. "The truck was as new to us, and now I know it was about the people that came to see it. I truly have learned about the real meaning of hot rodding. The cars are just the part that creates everlasting friendships, the meeting of new friends, and the sanctity of family. Thanks for the hard work and late nights," Kevin says.
