I'm an original mini trucker like most of us reading right now. Over the past decades I've build many S10's, OBS, and Silverados. I was ready for a new project, and started looking for an older C10. I just happened to come across the perfect canvas to start my art. At first Rusty was just going to be lowered, build 350, 5 speed, But after the first few times driving it, I knew I wanted more. I pulled it back in the garage and stage 2 started taking place. I want something that could run the road. Something that would take people by surprise. Then Rusty was born, LS3 with a T56 6 speed trans.
