1967 Chevrolet C10 LWB Stepside Pickup

6=8
I have a 1967 Chevrolet C10 long wheelbase stepside pickup truck. When I bought it in 1988 it wasn’t much to admire. In fact, it was very rusted, wouldn’t go into first or reverse gears, and had holes in the floor. Much has changed since then as you can imagine.

Over the years I’ve put a lot of time and effort into restoration and I need to do a lot more. Below I’ve listed some of the technical details and fun upgrades I’ve done to it over the years.

Instead, I felt I should be reserving it for something more substantial. So when the .me extensions became available a few weeks ago I grabbed MikeAllen.me and later moved some of my previous content to this location. Now I can save MikeAllen.com for something better and still have a personal blog with my name. Ah, the best of both worlds it seems.
