Street Trucks - - FRONT PAGE -

THE VOTES ARE FI­NALLY IN, AND WE HAVE A WIN­NER. The truck was started by Clint Pe­tree and Bob Grant of Grant Kus­toms when Clint owned it many years ago, but af­ter sit­ting for years it was even­tu­ally scooped up and com­pleted by Clint’s good friend, Nick Germano, owner of Outkast Kus­toms. Nick kept many of Clint and Bob’s orig­i­nal ideas in­tact (such as the scratch-built ’69 Ca­maro body lines) but added his own along the way. The re­sult is one of the wildest C-10s on the planet, and most of you agreed, vot­ing it Street Trucks 2017 Truck of the Year. Con­grats to Nick and all in­volved with this amaz­ing build. It was a long road, but the re­sults were ob­vi­ously worth the jour­ney.

This year’s award was de­signed and crafted es­pe­cially for Nick’s C-10 by Phil Cho­lette of Philbuilt De­signs. The beau­ti­ful tro­phy is com­posed of three sep­a­rate pieces of bil­let alu­minum, an­odized in gold and black, and se­cured with hid­den stain­lesssteel dow­els. It even has a “bumper” that mim­ics a Grant Kus­toms de­sign.

Our other top win­ners for 2017 will re­ceive cus­tom bil­let li­cense plates that are pretty spe­cial too. We can’t wait to see which trucks make the list for 2018. Will yours make the cut?
