    Not really in any order, trying to find my camera with some better pictures on it Picture 1 is the front fender, 2 is all the rust at near the door hinges/ outside of the door, 3 is the cab corner, 4 is the cab corner, and where they had to grind to get the paint away at the gas tank. The truck used to be a state truck and the old color was that yellow, then it was red and now its green

    Slang for Chevy Straight 6 motor. Mouse is a Chevy small block, Rat is a Chevy big block. Early Mopar Hemis were elephants. 348/409 Chevy were "W" motors, Newer Chevy V-8 is "LS".
