Ok so this #featurefriday is a special one! We met our good friend Bill @billfoley83 with @qa1motorsports while on the Power Tour 2018. They picked us out, but Bill’s ride is just too damn cool! Just by chance we ran into the guys again right before starting on the Tail of the Dragon, honored they let us trail them through! So let’s all check out his Burb’s story............. “The truck is a 1966 C10 Suburban that was originally purchased by a motorcycle racer in South Dakota who used it to go racing all over the country and even Canada and Mexico. It was at the Daytona 200 1972 and still has a decal from that race on the ceiling. His son took it over after that and continued using it to haul flat track race bikes around. His grand son is now the official announcer for the American Flat Track Series. After it left that family, it went to a friend of theirs who raced 3-wheelers and flew hang gliders. It has brackets welded onto the front bumper that were used for hauling his hang glider around.
At one point in it's history, the original owner and son shot a buck and loaded it up in back only for it to come back alive while they were cruising down the road. The son grabbed a .22 pistol out of the glove box and unloaded on it while it tried lunging into the front of the truck.
In the early 70's, the original owner swapped out the original straight 6 and 3 speed (on the tree) for a brand new 1971 Buick 350 V8 and TH350 trans, and custom mounted a Cadillac 12-bolt Posi diff with 3.31 gears into the stock C10 housing.
I bought the truck in 2016 after it hadn't been on the road for 20 years. After going through the brakes, fuel, ignition, cooling, suspension, it's back on the road. I've got about 8,000 miles on it this year since May. QA1 suspension, of course.”.........This truck has one the coolest stories we’ve ever heard! Glad it’s been resurrected and is still out there making memories! Go check him out and keep up with this ol’ gal! #goDRIVEit #goBUILDit #goLIVEit #rattymusclecars #carlifestyle #dailydriven #schweatys #adventure #c10 #burblife #suburban #c10suburban #qa1 #tailofthedragon #powertour #hrpt #motorcycle #motorcycleracing #bikehauler #deer
