    • Keith Paine- 1957 Chevy 3100 Truck

      "I am a state trooper in upstate NY. I also have a 57 chevy 3100 pickup that I have restomoded from the ground up. On 3/2/11 while I was working patrol parked behind a disabled vehicle I was struck from behind at 59mph (radar on monitoring speed) by a full size nissan pickup. The accident left me with three herniated disk in my neck and nerve damage and I needed over a years worth of therapy (of which I continued to work full time) to resolve just to find out that I would need surgery on my left shoulder (fully detached labrum and damaged bursa of which I recieved 2 months ago). I should be fit for full duty and able to start my project again in another couple of months. Needless to say, my 57 chevy pickup has sat 80% completed for about 20 months now. Nothing like watching your pride and joy of a vehicle sit all summer long (for two summers!) because you can't do the small things to get it going. Because of my injuries, my wife has also worked (an ER R/N) only about 1/3 of what she used to forcing her to take a part time position just to take care of me and our son leaving us financially down as well. My truck is a 57 chev 3100 w/ a 72 corvette 350 turned into a 383 stroker fuel injected and a stage 1 th350. Mustang II front end w/ disk brakes. The metal work is done with a ton of custom fabrication. I notched and boxed the frame lowering it @6". Shaved door handles, custom interior frenched lights. Eastwood is a great company and even if I didn't get selected I'll continue to buy your quality products. thanks, Keith"
