    I don't do Facebook but here's my hot rod. It's a 1960 GMC, 350/4 speed with a 4.09 Dana 44 rear axle. Wheels are 15x7 American Racing TTO's all around. The engine is running a Comp Cams HE268 with a Pete Jackson gear drive. It also has open fenderwells and Doug's electric cutouts. The interior is somewhat 60's style with diamond tufting and bucket seats:

    Beautiful truck. I have Corvette black paint with metallic flake and Silver with metallic flake. What sterring column did you use? I'm thinking of a tilt from a 1998 chevy 1500

    More pics of the 1960. Got the Motor and trans all bolted in and mounted. I used a 1982 Camaro RS trans mount it works great.

    The steering column is an aftermarket item available 20 years ago from an outfit named Butch's Rod Shop. They went out of business soon after, but have recently reformed offering fewer items. It's been a good column, but the bell area that bumps into the bottom of the dash is the deepest one I've ever seen (from top of the column to the face of the dash).

    After a while I found it really annoying as it pushed the steering wheel too far toward the back of the cab. I trimmed roughly an inch off the top and sides allowing the column to move 1" closer to the dash. In truth I've never really needed a tilt column, I just bought something that would fit without having to be modified.
