The Dollar Dream
1970 Chevy C10 Truck CustomizedBetter than a scratch-off worth a couple hundred dollars, or even a lucky hand at poker worth a couple thousand, this custom C10 was purchased for a dollar and has yielded assets that are priceless. Jorg Rodriguez, of Naples, Florida, has had this '70 Chevy in his family for 17 years. His dad picked it up in '91 for a dollar. Obviously, the truck didn't look like this when he handed over his George Washington, but after working on the truck for nearly two decades, Jorg says the time spent with his father was priceless. Enough with the Hallmark card stuff and down to the nitty gritty.

Part of the family growing pains was learning how to turn wrenches in the family business, Dream Cars, in Naples. Specializing in older cars requiring extensive bodywork, sheetmetal fabrication, and restoration, it was a no-brainer to buy the '70 C10 for a dollar and then do what they do, make it look great. Starting with the chassis, 2-inch Chassis Tech drop spindles and Firestone airbags with 1/2-inch nitrogen lines bring the front end nice and low. Out back, a four-link with Firestone 'bags keeps the Stepside hovering over the ground. Resting the rockers firmly on the Florida soil is courtesy of a 3-1/2-inch body-drop, which was also performed by Dream Cars. Tucked deep inside the fenders are 18x8-inch aluminum wheels from American Racing wrapped in 245/45R18 tires.

moking those rear tires is a Chevy small-block out of a '91 truck. Fitted with a Holley intake, Holley carb, Comp cam, and Hooker polished headers, the 350ci V-8 has a hearty rumble, courtesy of Flowmaster mufflers. The transmission chores are handled by a 700-R4.
