    Hey! I like the way they upholsterd those door panels![:0] I've got enough leftover seat material that I could do that to the Transtar. And, by golly - I just might![^]

          Yep. Definitely needs a Stude engine. But it's sad that they rodded a "perfectly solid and staight truck". I would rather have a more original look with a Cathcart flathead six engine. I guess I have a thing for six cylinders...

            I like it. There was a lot of attention paid to this truck. I certainly wouldn't mind it in my driveway.

              I'm not keen on fuzzy door panels the way Mr. Biggs seems to be (but then, didn't he show us a photo of his orange shag carpeted Ch*vy van?

              But I do like those dash gauges, and the lower dash treatment.
