Only because a few of you asked me...

I wouldn't have posted this at all, but some folks been asking...










It's pretty stock looking, a real sleeper.
For those of you who don't habla sleeper.  It is a car or truck that looks stock, but hauls ass!
This one sure does that. In fact, it's kind of scary fast. Especially with no power steering, stock suspension, and a steering wheel the size of a wading pool.

Beefed C6 auto trans

Purty truck. My only requirements for a vehicle are... it runs and has AC. Purty is optional. Your truck definitely has that option covered.

Really nice, never had anything like that but I had my share of Mustangs and Camaros. Now we have two Mercedes, getting old I guess.

Thank you!
Oh yeah, I left out the seven miles per gallon part! And the leaking oil part! And the rattling sounds coming from everywhere part! And the no A/C Part! And the freaking out over rain, bird crap, and dust part!

Patrick, nice truck but I'm following you for the whole blog. I just had a few minutes before going to work but the quick look through made me want to be here. The felony arrest? Vietnam? Can't wait to read more!

That is beautiful.... Is that a four on the floor I see?

Pat Tillett said...

Thank you sir!
The shifter is part of the "sleeper" vibe. The trans is a beefed automatic. The shifter (made by Lokar) is meant to give the appearance of a manual floor shifter. This truck had a "three on the tree" originally.

Ally said...
