Original Everything
Eric Corwin's '72 Chevy Cheyenne Super Longbed
Highland Heights, Ohio
The 411
Rims/Tires:

18x9 and 20x9 Cragar Series 61 / 255/45R18 and 275/40R20 Toyo Proxes
Engine:
402-cid big-block V-8 / 700R4 Gearstar transmission / factory rearend with 3:73 gears / Antique Auto Battery reproduction Delco battery / Powermaster alternator

Suspension:
Early Classic Enterprises 4/6 drop
Audio/Video:

Interior:
OE bucket seats with matching center console
We Say: Eric loves the original style of these C10s so much that he built this one with every original part he could find. To add just a hint of style, he lowered it and bolted on a set of Cragar wheels. The truck looks great and shows that longbeds can be cool too.
What He Wins
Since Eric's truck has a nice shine, we figured he would want to maintain that shimmer with a bottle of Reflections wax from Mothers. We're also sending him this super spy pen. It opens up to reveal a hidden flash drive containing the full GM Performance Parts catalog. A GM fanatic like Eric could spend hours checking out all those parts!

Win Our Junk And Get Free Sport Truck Stickers!
So just how do you get to win our junk and get some cool Sport Truck stickers for your ride? It's easy. It all starts with you taking a killer photo of your truck and sending that along with all of your information as well as a list of mods done to your truck. High-resolution digital photos are preferred and may improve your chances of winning. But really what it comes down to is if your truck is cool enough to pass our standards (OK, more like if we happen to get a bull's-eye on the dartboard!). So get going! Get out there with your digital cameras, put the settings on high-quality, and start shootin'. E-mail all of your stuff to kevin.aguilar@sourceinterlink.com, or send via snail mail to: Sport Truck Magazine, Homegrown Haulers, 2400 East Katella Ave., Ste. 700, Anaheim, CA 92806.
