1974 Chevy Stepside
Aged to Perfection
We all know how some things get better with age. Its true with wine and, in this case, with a wine-colored truck. Mike Ciarfaglio, an airline mechanic from Livermore, California, spent five years building his 74 Chevy Stepside.
Inspired by a truck once owned by his cousin Ed, Mikes dream became a reality with the help of his good friend Mike Witherspoon, who helped him with the major modifications. This isnt a simple clean-it-up-and-drive-it project either. Mike took his time and built this one right, leaving no stone unturned and no bolt unpolished. Mike made certain that his truck wasnt all show, though. With a thoroughly built small-block V-8 spinning the rear wheels, Mikes truck proves that go and show can and do go hand in hand.
