    Hi Folks,

    I wanted to show you these photos but couldn't find an appropriate section.

    It's a 1965 6ltr V8 Chevy Pickup. It's been custom painted to look weather beaten....

    He just needs to buy a couple of bloodhounds, a shotgun & a pair of denim dungarees to complete the look! :cool:

    Oh but they SOUND so good! Part of me really wants a V8 but the accountant side of me won't allow it...

    He also owns a customised 1947 8.2ltr V8 Chevy Coupe. That struggles to do 10mpg on a steady run. More like 6mpg around town! o_O
    Myself & Mrs DD used it as a wedding car. Leaving the church in a cloud of tyre smoke with the soundtrack from the V8 on open pipes. Was the highlight of my day! :grinning:
    (Don't tell her I said that :kissing:)

    My absolute favourite would be the older ones, less boxy and metal dash but thats still very tasty! And nicer than anything I'll ever own!

    Mildred (the 1947 Coupe) is for sale Andy. No idea how much though?

    PS.... Apparently, we are gonna be fitting air suspension to Ethal the pickup? So he can drop the body right down onto the road to ride his bike into the back. I've never had anything to do with that kinda air suspension set up. It hasn't stopped me suggesting the hydraulic type that allows the vehicle to dance at a standstill. Like a lowrider. ...

    Never quite got the bouncy "low-rider" stuff - and neither has this tw*t!
