The Two-Seat Rocket Ship
Kevin and Kim McClure's '88 Chevy S-10
Kevin told us in his email that he built this truck over nine years in his home garage while putting two kids through college at the same time. With the completion of the interior, Kevin and his wife took the 540hp S-10 to the St. Ignace car show where it took First Place in a field of 1,200 vehicles.
