Jim Silveira repainted and reupholstered his 1974 Chevy pickup, along with replacing the engine and transmission. He plans to have a new tonneau cover made as well. Among the pickup’s features are a bar grille, modern wheels and tires, and a lowered stance. Silveira’s love affair with cars began when he customized his first bicycle at age 12 and made a Stingray out of a 20-inch bike. He painted it and put butterfly handlebars and a banana seat on it. firstname.lastname@example.org
