No More Training Wheels
Julio Saenz's '94 Chevy Silverado Stepside
We Say: Before giving his pickup its recent face-lift, Julio says it had a drop kit, running boards, and a set of 15x10 training wheels. We imagine that the old wheels were wider than the fenders, which made them sticky-outies. Julio may have rolled like that for a while, but he finally wised up and finished off his truck with some style.

What He Wins
A lot of the junk we have lying around is leftover truck parts. Julio's truck is already finished however, so he doesn't need anything more attached to it. So instead of sending him something for his pickup, we're hooking up Julio with an abdominal exercise wheel to improve on his beautiful body (instead of his truck's). To go along with this is a copy of Domination the Video's Here Comes Trouble, which he can use as a workout DVD. Feel the burn!
