If there is one vehicle that I believe Brian, Chad and I all agree on 100%, it would be a GM truck. We might not agree on year, engine, setup, model or purpose, but we all can agree that we can find a Chevrolet or GMC that we would love to keep in our driveway. Chad already does keep one in his fleet, and I’d be willing to bet that Brian has looked a time or two. I haven’t owned one, but I’ve spun wrenches on plenty of them and I have fond memories of a 1979 stepside, a 1974 regular cab dually with a 454, and plenty others. Leave it to the truck division to keep things together during such fun phases as the Vega debacle, or the 1980s Xerox-copy clone days, or the rise and fall of Geo.
For this trip, we headed to the Wilson County Fairgrounds in Lebanon, Tennessee for the Southeastern Truck Nationals (SETN) Chevy/GMC throwdown. Sunny skies, hot temperatures and a bunch of folk who were more than ready to do anything that didn’t involve sitting inside of the house again made the turnout impressive, and from the front to the back of the fairgrounds, you could find something for anyone. An El Camino Super Sport? It was there. A Chevrolet Veraneio in perfect condition, constantly receiving “what the hell is that?” questions from the unknowning? Yep, it was there. Whether you’re riding high or are a member of the Praise the Lowered community, it was there. Take a look by clicking on a photo below!
