Bought From Afar and Built Right
This ’12 Chevy Silverado was bought from afar and built right
In a truck scene full of Silverado projects and limitless resources to find the newest and best trends floating around shows and the Internet, how does a builder make a truck truly unique? Steve Palmer of Decatur, Alabama, can tell you it’s no easy process. For him, it all began with the goal of owning a fun, worry-free truck for his wife and family to enjoy while making memories together on long road trips. While he had originally been considering Fords, something about not only the reliability, but the looks of the Chevrolet Silverado won him over. The body lines and front grille really appealed to him. At the time he was vehicle shopping, Steve was actually deployed overseas for his job with the Army, so he was doing his shopping online. Even though he had never set foot inside a Silverado at that point, when Steve came across a ’12 Silverado with less than 4,000 miles on it, he bought it. Since Steve was overseas, there was a lot of communication done via phone and computers to get everything completed, but with some help from the dealership and his nephew, Steve was able to get the truck to his home in Huntsville. After doing some research as well as talking to some other vehicle owners about their work from other shops, he chose to use Little Shop Mfg. to build the truck he had envisioned for himself and his family.
