Who: Anthony Orosco
Where: Madera, California
What: '71 Chevy C10
Seventeen-year-old Anthony Orosco of Madera, California, is the owner of this '71 shortbed big-window Chevy C10. Before the 305 powerplant out of a late-model Chevy was dropped into the truck, the frame and inner fenders were sent out for powdercoating. A Goodmark cowl-induction hood was bolted on, along with a set of 15-inch Prime wheels, wrapped in BFGoodrich 255/60R15 rubber. The stereo system has two 10-inch kicker subs. Full-size '94 Chevy bucket seats replaced the stock bench seat. The next big thing for Anthony is to 'bag the C10 and set it over some 22-inch rims. Thus far, it has been a two-year project with all the work done by Anthony and his dad. Anthony would like to thank his mom, dad, grandfather Robert, and everyone else who has helped him build this truck. And to help with his motivation to finish this project, we are going to send him some stuff from our Drawer-O'-Junk.
What He Wins Since Anthony...
What He Wins
Since Anthony impressed us so much with his awesome C10, he wins this awesome giant inflatable Royal Purple oil bottle. (Not to be used as a flotation device-but you could!)
Who: Ron Spiller
Where: Somewhere in Texas?
What: '02 Dodge Ram Quad Cab
This '02 Dodge Ram Quad Cab belongs to Ron Spiller. He bought it brand-new and has been working on it since then. It has a Precision billet grille and bumper insert, a Sir Michaels roll pan, a SnugTop fiberglass cover, projector headlights, carbon-fiber LED taillights, and chrome overlays on the door handles and tailgate. Also, he had the mirrors and all the plastic pieces painted to match. The truck has been fitted with a McGaughy's 4/6 drop and Dodge rides on Motto 20-inch wheels. To upgrade the tunes, Ron replaced all the factory speakers with Kenwood speakers and added two Kenwood 12-inch subs with a 1,200-watt Kenwood amp under the back seat. Controlling all these additions is a Kenwood Excelon CD/MP3 player. Ron plans on installing an air-ride suspension, creating a custom interior, and designing a colorful paint scheme with the hope to one day accomplish his dream of landing on the cover of Sport Truck.
Who: Dionicio "Dan" Nisnisan
Where: Stockton, California
What: '05 Chevrolet Colorado ZQ8 Xtreme Crew Cab
Dan's truck is an '05 Chevrolet Colorado ZQ8 Xtreme Crew Cab that he works out of every day. It doubles as his office and shop during the week, and it is also used to haul bikes and a trailer for camping excursions on the weekend. The suspension was handled by AIM Industries Lowboyz coilover front shocks, Belltech 1-inch lowering springs, JagsThatRun.com 1-1/2-inch solid billet lowering blocks, and DJM Calmax rear shocks, which is all topped off by Air Lift load-control 'bags and a dash-controlled air management system. Moving on to the motor side of things, various products from companies such as AEM, Borla, HPTuners, Optima, and Tsunami were installed. Accenting the exterior are accessories like a billet Bow Tie, door and tailgate handle covers, an AMI locking fuel door, a SnugTop SL tonneau cover, a Yakima bike rack, and a Line-X bedliner. Additional exterior features include paint-matched Street Scene power side-view mirrors, 3M Clear Bra paint protection film, an HID headlight conversion, custom-smoked TYC LED taillights, a custom LED third brake light, a DrawTite hitch, and Boss Motorsports 307 20x8.5-inch wheels, wrapped in Goodyear Eagle HP 255/35R20 tires. Adding to the creature comforts of the Colorado are an A-pillar dual gauge pod with Aeroforce tech Interceptor OBD2 scan gauge and oil pressure gauge, and Coverking custom-tailored neoprene seat covers. Finishing off the sound and security, it still has the factory six-disc XM head unit with an iPod interface for a 60G iPod, a JL Audio 500-watt five-channel amp, a JL Audio Stealthbox, and Boston Acoustics Pro60 6-1/2-inch component door speakers. Lastly, keeping everything on lock-down is an Audiovox Pro-9800 two-way remote-start security system.
