1980 GMC K25 Sierra Show Truck - We Steal A Show TruckPosted in Features on September 1, 2001
We had to do it. We couldn't bear the thought of Todd Hoffman's '80 K25 Sierra show truck spending another second at the Lima, Ohio, Jamboree unless the Quadrajet's secondaries were slapped open and it was covered in mud. Frankly, we just don't believe that there is a truck out there that is more fun to wash and wax than it is to romp and stomp. Do you? Of course not! So while the trophies were being handed out and the judges were looking the other way, we took the only appropriate course of action we could-we stole it.
Whaaa, whaaa, whaaa-stop your crying. You wouldn't have been able to resist the temptation either after you experienced the GMC's big-block fire up. We could almost hear this truck's pleas to be rescued, and we had to step in. Rest assured we'd do the same for your rig. And it's not like we entered it in the Tough Truck competition (we couldn't afford the entry fee) or ran it on the monster truck course (they said our tires were too small), but the truck did go boggin' in the mud. By the end of the day our conscience was getting to us (OK, we just ran out of gas) so we had to give up the truck and hand it over to its rightful owners. Kids, don't try this at home. We are professionals.
