A ’55 Chevy Pickup And Tahoe Chassis Swap You Want To See!
This builder used the shows to help with this awesome and unique build! Eric Baltazar looks forward to Saturday mornings to get his does of Power Nation how-to tech that he used for his 1955 Chevy pickup build. Along with the help of Greg Bush from Past Time Customs, they took the body off of a Chevy Tahoe and put a ’55 Chevy pickup on top of the full chassis suspension drive-train.
At first, Greg thought Eric was crazy for attempting this swap but they made it possible! They managed to get everything from wheel wells to fenders to line up, then it was on to the body work! Eric wanted a copper effect on the truck, and after a lot of work it turned out looking great. It may look antique on the outside, but on the inside it’s nice and polished. It’s a one of a kind build, that’s for sure!
HOW TO RUST PROOF YOUR TRUCK OR CAR FAST AND CHEAP
Among the most nagging things that come along with the hobby of working on a car or truck, rust definitely has to be near the top of that list. It’s something that is difficult to prevent and when you have an infestation, it can really spread like wildfire, making things a lot more difficult.
When you just want to get out there and wrench on your vehicle to add go-fast parts to it but also have to deal with all of the rust, it really adds another element into the equation to consider to spend your time and money making sure that it isn’t an issue.
This time, we take the time to check out a video that shows off one man’s method of rustproofing a car or truck in a fast and cheap way that he thinks could be effective.
Now, this is definitely one of the many ways to do it as you should probably look into what other ways are possible before proceeding but if you have an area that’s clean and clear of any rust, doing something like this could potentially be a good way to make sure that you don’t have to deal with that in the future, knocking out that pesky substance that you will probably have to address in the long run, anyway.
Check out the video below to see how this undercoating works and what exactly this individual thinks of how the ideal way to shield yourself from rust might look like.
When it comes down to it, whether or not you end up using this method, looking into some way to protect her vehicle from rust could end up being an incredibly smart decision in the long run that might just put more money in your pocket.
Mechanical Failure Caused The Cab Completely Separated From the Frame
The body mounts of a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado pickup failed after a mechanical failure caused the driver to lose control of the truck. The end result is that photo you see above: the cab completely separated from the frame.
This happened in Pelham, New Hampshire, police responded to a report of a “vehicle rollover,” which, We guess, is sort of applicable in this situation. According to the Pelham Police Department’s press release, the 21 year-old driver “felt the steering wheel begin to shake just prior to losing control.”
A crash ensued, and when police arrived the truck’s cab “was completely separated from the frame.” Luckily, the occupant was able to just crawl out of the truck with only minor injuries, which—as the Pelham Police Department’s Facebook page puts it—makes her “very lucky.”

“Believe me I’m a mechanic,” – words which describe this guy perfectly!! And one more prove that Redneck imagination has no limits. Those “Partners” on the truck are doing improvements and tune up their truck in very bizarre way. In other words – stock trucks are for pussies.
Redneck tuning is far-far away from logic and engineering.
However, this guy just set a World Record in must Bizzare Redneck Tuning. Instead of restoring this Classic Chevy C10, or improving comfort inside, No, he put huge tires on the rear axle to make the impossible to drive truck!
And when I say huge, I mean it. They have the same height as whole Truck.
One important notice is, that despite of all those redneck show-off features, owner improved the engine, setting a huge turbo. Moreover, to mount those huge sushis frame and axle improvement were mandatory.
Finally, we’re pretty sure, that this truck is impossible to drive in day-by-day routine, but to show-off a little, why not?
