Oh man is that lame!

buy a real chevy and import it or its just LAME.

Also this clown calls it a S10 thats a copy of a old C10 chevy from 67 to 72

You can never duplicate the FEEL of a Old school hot rod so why bother.

I like when people try to make disparaging comments regarding the hard work someone else has done and their statement is whacked. For example:"I enjoyed the part where the host can't figure out the difference between replicating an S-10 mini truck and a '67 C-10 classic full sized truck. Good job."

Why is that whacked? Well the truck is obviously replicating the 1971-'72 Chevrolet trucks not the '67. While the '67 was the same body style the grill, which is what Blow has paid homage too, is completely different.

Good Job!
Great video thanks for sharing with us!

This has been a great series, as others have noted, the production value is awesome! The relatively short segments don't let you get past the surface, but they've still been pretty entertaining.

Bradley is also a great host, good job man! I actually think he would have been a good host for the new Top Gear USA, maybe replace Adam Ferrarra who has been complete crap on the show.

What happened to the American car companies?I really think that the government is not a fair organization. That is why GM,Ford,Chrysler are never going to bloom again. Thank you guv.

cool idea. i always wondered why no one made a 57 chevy or a 67 vette body with a new chassis.
