    1976 Chevy LUV (Isuzu KB)

    Here is my parts hauler-



    She may not look like much, but only has 60k on the odo.

    My grandfather bought it in 1978 as a total from an insurance auction and did the bare minimum to get it legal again. He gave it to me at the beginning of the year so I can have a yard truck/parts hauler.

    Mods are minimal, but here is the list-

    Weber 38/38 carb
    upgraded to an 80a alternator, 1 wire internal regulator
    H4's, yellow H1's
    all red taillights
    195/50 15 Kumho's, still had the OE bias ply tires when I picked it up :td:
    lowered 4" front, 3" rear

    Honestly you would not believe how many compliments I get while driving it! It is by far the most beat looking vehicle I've ever owned.

    Well, I guess we aren't the only crazy ones then.

    L = Light
    U = Utility
    V = Vehicle

    It's called "patina"

    It does now.

    It's a sweet ride.

    [rant]It seems so ironic that Isuzu started out in the US rebadging their truck as a Chevy, and by the end was selling Chevy trucks rebadged as Isuzus. Why did GM bother spending billions on creating Saturn as their "import-beater" when they already has Isuzu? If people want to buy imports, why not let them buy the import you own? And people wonder why GM went bankrupt.[/rant]
