I had just received a kidney transplant(still going strong 30 years later), and saw an ad for the Chevrolet 454SS short bed pickup, and so, I thought I needed a celebration toy!!
My trucks have always been black Chevy short beds so everything fell right into place.
In 1998 a friend who owned a body shop wanted to flame the truck with holographic paint. It had been lowered with custom wheels and tires.
