After being voted in to compete in this year's TTC, Phillip McGilton and his team completely rebuilt his '83 K10 in only 41 days. It's big, it's built like a tank, and when the wicked, loping 632ci big-block engine fires it sounds really angry. If Phillip McGilton's truck were human we'd respectfully recommend it attend anger management class. We'll see if it can withstand the fury of the Tank Trap next month.
