About “GiantMan'sCar”

this is my new truck, got it 4 2500 bucks, an i luv it. never thought id get a deal like this, but i was already sellin my firebird and my parents needed the money, so deal done! as soon as i got it, we all packed up in it and traved here to Lavonia Georga. next thing im going to do is get a job, start saving money, and put a little bit here and there into here, make her real pretty, you watch, thisll be in street trucks 1 day ;) still have to figure out exactly what i wnt to do to it

About “Goldie”

My Dad bought her new. He sold her to my Uncle Bob, who sold her to my cousins husband TJ who traded her to my brother Jake for my old 1976 Jeep CJ5, who sold her to my cousin Steve, who sold her to my cousins husband TJ (for the second time) who wanted a 1972 Chevy C10 Pickup truck I was redoing that I had got when I traded my 1976 Jeep CJ5 to my brother Jake. I'm so confused! My dad passed away in 07 and I was leery of getting her back cause I don't know if I could ever stand to get rid of her again. Not sure what I am going to do with her yet.

Specs for “Goldie”

My Dad was a crane operator at AK Steel (formerly Armco) when Chevy came out with this truck they contracted AK for the metal (Gavalume) so my Dad bought her as soon as they came out. I also bought my first new car at the same time when we went to pick up his truck. A 1988 Chevy Beretta lol. I thought that car was cool (keep in mind it was 80's). Anyways Dad drove Goldie to work till he retired and then he used her for his store, Coontucky Sportsman Supply, to haul animal feed. After he closed the store he bought some land and used Goldie to haul his cattle. and feed. But the farm is on a hill so he had to give her up for a 4x4. She's just one of them trucks that carry as many memories as they have loads.
