Here's a shot of Chad Sinnett's 1979 GMC High Sierra. For motivation it
relies on a 325+ horsepower 350 connected to a TH350. The straight sheet metal has been
covered in Flame Orange paint. To complete the exterior aesthetics, American Racing
454SS look-a-like wheels are placed in all four corners. Behind doors #1 and #2 is a
modified interior with bucket seats and a center console. Update
08/22/01: Chad has since updated the supsension
using DJM products to lower the front three inches and the rear five inches. Thanks
for the great pictures!
Rick Rosenthal of Clovis, California sent in
these pictures of his 78' K5 Blazer for the world to see. Rick's Viper Red K5 is
powered by a 350 crate motor with Edelbrock intake and carburetor, 90 amp alternator, and
Doug Thorley headers that route the exhaust through 2 1/2 inch pipes and into Flowmaster
mufflers. The 350 is backed by a Turbo 350 transmission and a 203 transfer case
directs the power to all four 33x12.50x15 BFGoodrich tires.
On the inside, Rick's ride is covered in two tone custom crushed
velvet. To complement the velvet, the K5 has a Wabbit's wood dash kit, Grant wood
steering wheel, JVC CD player, 2 amps, 2 10" subs, power windows, power locks, tinted
windows, and various billet accessories. As a tribute to Rick's favorite NFL team,
an "SF" has been etched into the rear window, and the license plate reads
"49ERK5". Thanks for the pictures Rick.
Fremont, California sent us this picture of his 87 Custom Deluxe. Ryan's shortbed
features a 6 inch lift and 35x15.5 TSL/SX Super Swampers on 15x10 A/E 589 wheels.
Under the hood lurks a 305 bored .030 over. The small mouse is stuffed with a Crane
Cam, topped by an Edelbrock intake and Holley TBI, and ignited by an MSD ignition. A
700R4 tranny sends the power to a 10 bolt rear end with a Detroit Locker, and a Dana
40/Detroit locker combo upfront. Inside Ryan has added a Pioneer CD player, Infinity Kappa
6x9's and 3 1/2's, and thumping behind the seat are two MTX 10" subs powered by an
MTX Thunder amp. According to Ryan, his truck holds it's own in the mud. We
can see why! Thanks for the picture Ryan.
Blackwell from Stillwater, Oklahoma sent in these pictures of his 1982 Silverado.
Jon has just started his project and has some big plans for it. To this point Jon
has trashed the 305 and dropped in a 350/350 combo. Inside he's added a new bench
seat, dash, carpet, tachometer, Blaupunkt head unit, 2 JBL 10's, amplifier, and a
CB. On the outside he has added undercarriage lights, strobe lights, tool box,
tailgate net, and a CB antenna.
Jon plans to build the 350 up, add new paint, increase the ground
clearance of the 4x2 with a 7" lift and 35" tires, light up the night with a set
of KC daylighters, and add a hood scoop. Jon says he never plans to get rid of his
truck. With the plans he has for it he should be busy for awhile! Thanks for
sharing your truck Jon.
Jason Bassett of Alabama sent us these pictures of his 1978 GMC
Sierra. Jason's GMC is powered by a 350 bored .060 over and stuffed with TRW
pistons. A pair of Sportsman II heads rest on each side of the block, and inside is a GM
performance parts DZ302 cam. Topping the small block off is a GM Bowtie intake and Holley
750 carb. A TH350 and B&M 3000 stall send the power to a 12 bolt rear end which
houses Richmond 4.10 gears and an Auburn mini spool. Thanks for the picture
