2014 comes to a close, I wanted to thank all of the visitors, customers and
friends a Merry Christmas and a happy new year. I hope everyone finds
time this holiday season to reflect on this past year, look ahead to 2015,
and spend some quality time with your friends, family...and squarebody!
With that, here is a gearhead version of The Night Before Christmas....
'Twas the night before Christmas, and out in the
There wasn't a trace of a Ford, Toyota, or Dodge.
The presents were wrapped, and the lights
were all lit,
So I figured I'd mess, with the Silverado a bit.
I popped the release, and I lifted the hood,
When a deep voice behind me said, "looks pretty good."
Well as you can imagine, I turned mighty
And there by the workbench, stood good ol Saint Nick!
We stood there a bit, not too sure what to
Then he said "don't suppose that you'd trade for my sleigh?"
I said "no way Santa", and started to grin,
"But if you've got the time, we could go for a spin!"
His round little mouth, all tied up like a

So as not to disturb, all the neighbors'
We pushed the Silverado, quietly out to the street.

The sound that erupted, took him by
But he liked it a lot, by the look in his eyes.
With the tires a' cryin', and exhaust pipes
We headed out where, the hot rodders go.
And Santa's grin widened, approaching his

Then Santa yelled, "I've never felt so

Ol Santa was stunned, when I gave him the
When he walked past the headlights, he shook at the knees!
The Big block exploded, with dual exhaust
Santa let out the clutch and the tires shook the ground!

I sat there just watching, a loss for a word.
Then I heard him exclaim, as we blasted from

If you would like to upgrade the speakers in your truck, this might interest
you. I have designed and fabricate cab corner 6x9 speaker
brackets for all 73-87 GM trucks, 88-91 crew cabs, and even 67-72 GM trucks. These brackets
are made of heavy duty 16 gauge steel, and fit perfectly in the cab
corners...even with the bench seat all the way back. I have sold over
300 sets of these brackets so far,
and have had ZERO negative feedback on them, only positive! They have
also been featured in Custom Classic Trucks magazine. I have
spent a lot of time developing and making these, and take a great deal of
pride in them. If you are interested, or just want to learn more and
see some pictures and customer feedback, head on over to
67-72chevytrucks.com and take a look.
I also have pictures of them installed in my '73 right here on the 'site,
here to see them. If you are still reading this and are
interested in purchasing a set, click
here to place your order for 73-87 brackets and
here for 67-72. You can also send an e-mail to
and let me know.

you may recall the Autometer gauge brackets I had for sale on here, these
are the brackets that would mount the gauges behind the bezel at the correct
angle. I no longer sell due to the fact that there are too many
different gauges and sizes on the market, it was impossible to design and
fabricate the brackets because I didn't physically have all the gauges to
take measurements from or the cooperation of Autometer to supply them.
I do have good news however, I am now offering to build the complete
assembly for anyone who is interested in this upgrade. You will need
to send me the gauges (any brand), dash bezel, cluster housing and cluster
lens, I will do the rest. The price is $250 and that includes the
brackets obviously. If you have gauges for brackets I do not have
designed, there will be an additional charge of $75 for the design and
fabrication of them. If you are interested or have any questions,
please send me an
E-mail. Pictures below are some of the clusters I have recently built, or
had a hand in the creation of, along with some feedback I have received.
PERFECT...that is how this bezel came out, Jeff's quality and workmanship
second to none. If anyone is looking to have their gauges done the
same way, I would not hesitate to recommend Jeff. He is very
passionate about his work and it shows. ~Bill from Pittsburgh
