Just Playin'
Who: Kevin Dawson
Where: Somewhere In The State Of Ohio
What: '83 Chevy S-10
Kevin Dawson, of somewhere in Ohio, built this '83 S-10, just playing around. He has covered every aspect of this truck in detail. He chromed this, painted that, shaved everything, suicide doors and hood, and added a full audio and video system with a tweed wrapped interior. And it doesn't stop there. Under the hood, there is more paint, more chrome, and billet goodies dressing up the full-tilt motor. This S-10 has plenty of get up and go, with a 355cid Chevy V-8 bored out 0.030 over with Dart heads and intake, roller rockers and a 100 shot of N2O. If this is playing around, we want to see what would happen if Kevin got serious.

Rescue One
Who: Scott Perillo
Where: East Haven, Connecticut
What: Late-Model Dodge
From what we can tell, this is a late-model Dodge Ram-Scott kind of forgot to tell us what year and model his truck is. Everybody in Scott's town knows his truck as Rescue One, and rightly so. This rig is equipped to help a friend stuck in the woods with brushguards, side steps, and a roll bar from Grizzly, or he can rescue a beautiful maden in distress and give her dead battery a jump, simply because she's a beautiful damsel in distress. And on those days when he's out saving the town, Alpine, Boston Acoustic, Infinity, and Audiobahn are the components used in this 600-watt system to help time go by while in between rescues.

Livin' In Beverly Hills
Who: Ted Zagnoli
Where: Beverly Hills, Florida
What: '05 Ford F-150 Lariat
Rolling around Beverly Hills is not an easy task-making sure you do it with style and class is what it is all about. And Ted does it with his F-150 all clean and shined up, accessorized with billet upper and lower grilles, chrome hood protector, door handles, tailgate handles, and mirrors. Euro taillights and custom graphics make Ted's truck stand out among the all the other F-150s that roll through the area. Under the hood, an AIRAID cold-air intake and a MagnaFlow dual exhaust give this truck that throaty don't-mess-with-me sound, which is perfect for Beverly Hills...Florida.

Wreck To Riches
Who: Shawn McKee
Where: Conroe, Texas
What: '00 Chevy S-10
This is for all you avid Sport Truck readers. This truck was featured in Readers' Rides a couple years back. The owner Shawn McKee had this truck looking really good until someone pulled out in front of him while he was doing 55 mph. First off, we are glad to see that Shawn survived, and second we're happy that he has not let this adversity keep him down. Since the truck was totaled, Shawn has worked hard to build his new '00 S-10, with parts from Ektensive Metalworks. Shawn and his friend Jason Styles have done all the work to get his ride back to where he left off with his last S-10. Shawn is on the right track to building a really clean truck, provided nobody pulls out in front of him.

Straight Pimpin'
Who: Danny Goldstein
Where: Davie, Florida
What: '01 Ford F-150
Whether out on the drag strip or on the show grounds, Danny is looking good doing it. This F-150 has way too many mods to list here; some of the products used are from Chassis Tech, K&N, Flowmaster, Diablo, Nu-Image, Sony PlayStation, and JL Audio. In the near future, Danny wants to bolt up a supercharger so the guys at the track have no chance to beat him. And to finish off the show side of things, Danny wants to install an airbag setup.

Grandpa's Toy
Who: Tom Cameron
Where: Colorado Springs, Colorado
What: '01 GMC Sierra
Tom Cameron, who by the way is 70 years young, gets to flex his styling around his town of Colorado Springs, Colorado, with this '01 GMC Sierra. Sportin' accessories such as APC Euro taillights, an ARE bedcover, a billet third brake light cover, an antenna, and a spider web grille. Fiftys-style two-tone pinstriping and 20-inch KMC Venom wheels finish off the exterior. In the pony compartment, an AIRAID intake and MagnaFlow dual cat-back exhaust help with the breathing abilities of this 5.3L V-8. A Hypertech programmer is used to keep all those extra horses running like a thoroughbred.
