Trent Van Arsdalen has been working with custom vehicles for the past 16 years. In that time, he's run the gamut of all aspects of building and showing custom trucks and cars. His expertise, however, lies in his talents as an interior-design guru. Over the years, Trent has been responsible for showing vehicles in 14 states and has taken home many awards for his hard work and thoughtful interiors. Last year, Trent was the lucky recipient of an '04 Chevy Colorado Extended Cab, complete with the new Vortec 3500 3.5L inline-five engine. His goal was to turn the truck around in record time to debut it at the 2004 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
