1979 Chevrolet K20, Maine

from Jason Lavers, in Maine: Hello Peter, Back in August of last year you took some pics of my truck at a soccer game that I attended for one of my kids in Freeport. I noticed in the blog you posted it as a 1975, but it’s actually a 1979. Finally got it finished this December, thought I’d share some pics.No rust anymore, has a little over 5600 original miles, and she plows snow pretty well too J I wood grained the original aluminum tail panel piece and added a subtle 67 El Camino Chevrolet emblem.--JL
