YAK Car Pic of the Day



From our “When a pickup was a truck” series — this 1963 Chevrolet C10 Stepside. Not likely that Maw and Paw would have driven this to Salvatore’s for dinner — not even when it was shiny and new (a look which probably lasted about half-a-day). Surprisingly, an AM radio was standard, but there was no factory-installed a/c available — although the dealer could hang a unit from the bottom of the dash if you wanted; but back then not many pickup owners considered such things necessary. Compare this to today’s pickups, most of whose owners would rather cut off their right arm than carry a load of cow manure in the bed. Or anything not in a cardboard box! This scruffy-looking blue number was seen a couple of days ago in Niagara Falls.

    Never owned the step-side but had plenty of the good old C-10’s. A real truck that worked like a mule.
    Long as I’m jawing…bring back the window flaps that open and bring back the old simple bench seat. I find ’em more comfortable that the 60/40 splits or the bucket style.
