1990 Chevy Silverado - Totally Tubular 'Tie
Wreck Your Truck, Build A New Truck
Photography by Jon Thompson
Mark started from scratch with the interior, using a set of seats from an '87 Blazer, which he recovered in purple and silver tweed. He added gray carpet, a white leather steering wheel from Grant, a set of Auto Meter Phantom II gauges, and to top all this off, a JVC audio head unit, two MTX amplifiers, two 10-inch woofers, two 6.5-inch midrange speakers, and two tweeters.
With this level of detail work done, you'd be tempted to think that Mark's rebuilt Chevy would be a trailer queen, a rig that never leaves the sterile confines of the grassy infields of the show world, but nothing could be further from the truth. The pictures you see here should prove that.
Interestingly, though his tubular Bow Tie is a pretty elaborate ride, Mark remains unsatisfied with what he has. He's ordered an '02 Silverado 2500, for which he's already got extensive plans. Let's just hope those plans don't include having to build it twice.
