While collecting parts for a prior Z/28 Camaro project, Chip Foose stumbled across a rare 302ci engine out of a 1967 Z/28. He thought it would be really cool to find a 1967 Chevy short bed pickup and then do something that the factory designers should have done back in 1967.

It's Good to be the King

I met Bob Bauder in 1984 in Hesperia California when he passed me going the opposite direction in his lowered 1947 Ford convertible. I did a quick u-turn, because I really wanted to check out the car. Little did I know, a simple u-turn would have such a profound effect on my life and a lot of my future friendships.
