About “Big Bertha”

I bought this truck in 2003 to haul my Hurst Olds with. I was going to call it my Hurst Hauler, but Big Bertha was more appropriate.
You have to park a mile away from everthing cause its jus to big to park close. At least
I get some walking in, Doctors orders. Average fuel milage is 13.1, loaded or empty
thanks to the 410 posi rear.


This is my 1978 Chevy C30 3+3 Camper Special Truck. I got this truck after my grandfather was killed in October of 2006. My great-grandfather bought this truck new in 1978 in Lafayette, GA at Rutledge Chevrolet. This truck only has 57,000 miles on it.
