Default C3 VS 54 Pick up

Just testing some pictures. A friend of mine brought his 54 Chevy pickup over yesterday and I was shocked to see the almost identical colors. I knew it was yello and I have ridden in it a lot, but I didn't realize they were exact. In the pics of the noses he said that he just edged me out in a race. I don't think it would be that close. He's running a 350 with 325 HP. It's scarry. Harleyboy

The '54 may have edged out the Vette, but the Vette was runnin' on the dirt!
You could have taken him easily, if you both ran on the pavement!

Nice pic!!!

I don't know C3 Starship. That truck is scarry fast. About 4 months ago we were riding around in the country and I ask him to punch it, because it sounds so mean I wanted to see it in action. I almost messed my pants up. It has a 4 speed and when he hit second it got squirrely. Man, I was wanting him to slow down. I haven't really run the Vette hard yet, but I don't think it will stay with that truck or my hot rod. Maybe one day I can report on this. HB

That's what I call, "Scary Cool"!!![sm=icon_rock.gif]
I've had grown men squeel like a little girl, while ridin' in the "Starship". I don't drive dangerously, just intensely. I can't wait 'til I get my 454 installed.
