S: Our Love of Charlie

FC: Our Love of Charlie

1: This is our story of a man and his truck... but we included the woman behind the man, behind the truck! Oh and let's not forget the blood, sweat and tears... and the oil, tools, anti-freeze, grease, money, dreams, frustrations, joy and love that brought one clunker into a styling, roaring, mean machine! Our Love of Charlie

2: Bringing Home Charlie

3: It's like you were made for each other...

4: The Adventures of Modification!

5: We received Charlie with two bucket seats, with terribly torn GMC blue vinyl. In search for something more comfortable and roomy, we found and dismantled a bench seat found in a similar truck at our local Pick-a-Part. Matt had already bought an upholstery kit. After hours filled with aggravation and some swear words, Matt and I finally fitted the snug black and gray skin, in place of the ripped southwestern cloth. It was a lot of work, but it pays off with the extra seating and style!

7: BIG BLOCK CHEVY!!!!!

10: Matt bought a 77' green GMC truck with a number matching 454 engine for $500, which I lovingly nicknamed Mr. Greenbean! | We pulled out the big block and began cleaning the many layers of caked dirt, grim, and oil that accumulated over decades.

13: I know not everything has gone smoothly, but you once told me that if something was easy then it's not worth getting. I've witnessed your frustrations, pitfalls into depression, your zeniths of happiness, and times of utter exhaustion. Well I know you thought this day may never come, but here it is, the day of YOUR OWN BIG BLOCK CHEVY! Bask in glory. Was it worth it? | blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blu ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga Brap Brap Brap Brap Brap brap Brap Brap GLUB GLUB GLUB GLUB GLUB GLUB GLUB blub blub blub blub blub blub blub bl ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga Brap Brap Brap Brap Brap Brap Brap Brap GLUB GLUB GLUB GLUB GLUB GLUB GLUB blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blu ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga Brap Brap Brap Brap Brap Brap Brap Brap GLUB GLUB GLUB GLUB GLUB GLUB GLUB blub blub blub blub blub blub blub bl ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga Brap Brap Brap Brap Brap Brap Brap Brap GLUB GLUB GLUB GLUB GLUB GLUB GLUB blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blu ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga ga

14: I remember us being covered head to toe in dust, dirt, oil, clumps of grime and whatever else was around. It would cover our faces, stain our clothes and stick to our fingernails for months at a time (especially yours, Matt). -Kimberly

15: Charlie's name written in the dirt swept up at the shop! | The 454 before we spent a whole day,with brushes, grease remover, and the pressure washer, trying to shrub it clean!

16: Many a Saturday, Matt and I worked on engine, made adjustments, installing this or that, and trouble shooting issues. We were lucky to receive help from our knowable friends :) We can't thank them enough

18: Thank you for letting me share your dream for Charlie. It's been fun, even though the cuts, dirt, and sweat ; )
