Ray Horseman of Bim, West Virginia, says this ’73 Chevy 4x4 3/4-ton pickup is mostly homemade. He calls it the Black Goose and claims its the apple of his eye. Well, the Goose has its original 350ci engine, an upgraded stereo system with 150-watt speakers to drown out the rattles and clangs, a sheetmetal bed, and a fabricated bumper. Ray says the two-tone paint adds texture to the truck’s rugged look. It’s clear he has had to defend his truck. Someone once told him that his truck was so ugly it could stop a train. Maybe it has.
