The Most Thoughtful Submission by the Owner's Girlfriend Award
Hunter Carson's '72 Chevy C10
15-inch pacer 297b / hankook ventus
Shaved side trim, sidemarkers, and tailgate / PPG Get 'Em Green and black paint
Sony Xplod head unit and speakers
All sheetmetal painted to match body / new steering wheel / pedals / fuzzy dice
We Say: Lucky for Hunter, his girlfriend, Kayla, submitted the info and photos as a surprise for him. Though she was trying to do this for Christmas of '07, she didn't realize that we produce the mag months in advance. It was a nice thought, and we think her efforts should not be forgotten.
