1997 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series Silverado (Mistress)

Last updated Apr 21, 2013

We bought this truck following the demise of my original truck, the Red Rocket. It is my daily driver, and gets used as my work truck. Just the way a real truck should be. Except that it needs a standard transmission.


5.7 Vortec V8
4 speed automatic overdrive transmission
3.73 geared Posi rear axle

Factory Options

Power Windows, Power Seats, Power Mirrors, Cruise Control, Tilt Wheel,AM/FM Cassette/CD Player, Grey Cloth interior, Keyless Entry, Third Door.


Previous owner "installed" a can of white semi-gloss housepaint under the hood.
Besides removing most of the house paint, I've installed Lund Ventshades on the front doors(I hate how the extended cab shades look), applied Silver Pinstriping and couple of Dale Earnhardt decals, and aided in removing tire tread from the Uniroyal Tiger Paws that were on it when we bought it.

Car show Debut

The Red Rocket #2 finally made it's show debut on 9-17-2006 at an area show, and has returned with a first place class winning trophy. 1 show, one win, lots of compliments on a daily driver truck with nearly 160,000 miles. Sorry, no pics as of yet.
