Looks like a drag race! These two pickups are coming together in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop, the foreground is a '64 Chevy C-10 that will be powered by an EFI 6.2 V8, and the background is the '69 F100 "Thunder's Truck" riding on a 2002 Ford Lightning chassis!  We build and restore Classics and Muscle Cars in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop, but we also enjoy working on cool trucks, too.
