    Default I'm new to the club and need some ideas for my 1990 Truck...

    I have a 1990 Chevrolet long bed with a 305 engine. Its basically stock. I bought it from a old woman whos husband passed away for $1000 it only has 147k miles and runs like a champ! I had the windows tented and I redid the grill myself. I would really love to change the wheels and tires on it so if you have any for sell of any ideas please let me know. I would also like to get a good deep sound out of it so any exhaust ideas would help. I am going to do an intake system probably K&N soon... Any more advice would be helpful this is a project truck. I might do a pain job I was thinking a dark metallic gray with the same style pin stripes but red and a red chevy badge and maybe a red interior also ideas on gauges.... What do you guys think?

    Of course I want to save as much money as possible but I also want it to look good!

    Wheels and tires always make a big differance on a trucks appearance. I'd start there. Decide if you want to go with a street or off-road look.
