​#16 - 1971 Titty Pink Chevy Truck

Not sure if you guys have realized I use to be a real fuck off when I was younger. After being grounded most of my childhood I felt I needed to get out & enjoy what the universe had to offer. But after multiple minor consumptions, speeding tickets & running from the law I found myself without wheels & a driver’s license, which made it a real bitch to see all my girlfriends, well until Tammy ran them all off! I met Tammy at her sister’s house after bringing a hand full of girlfriends there one at a time as we partied through the night. After taking the last one home & retuning, Tammy was there to greet me & call me a dog. After a few more drinks & listening to how bad I was she became my 6th girlfriend & later demanded I get rid of the rest, which is probably why I’m still alive today. She encouraged me to be a little more responsible & grow up. So, after taking advantage of her & her car, thought I could return the favor by building her a truck which was a bad ass small block 350 Muncie 4 Speed, slammed down & titty pink. I remember taking it out one-night partying w/ friends, ripping through someone’s neighborhood in the rain doing 360’s into someone’s front yard backwards taking out their mailbox. We roosted out of there yard insuring I wouldn’t get caught but after waking up in the morning I noticed a little damage to the side of the truck. Must have been the scaffolding that fell off a construction truck is what I said… Wink, Wink! My favorite time in this truck was w/ my grandpa. We went to Payson to get an engine stand for my next build. He said, “Let’s get some beer”, I was shocked & didn’t know he liked to party. We hauled ass up the hill driving, cranking Hank Jr. as he told me stories of his younger years & where the law would be hanging out to get us! After safely returning to my mom’s a little liquored & grandpa two stepping, she was there to greet us. He told me, “your mom doesn’t know, let’s keep it that way”. He lived to be 92 & was a bad ass. RIP Grandpa. Tammy loved her titty pink truck which was later rebuilt & given to my Brother Nick after returning from the military.
