Mr. Khalid Adel owns a 1985 Chevrolet C10 which he bought from Saudi Arabia. Gaz got a chance to meet this guy, whose love towards classic car is passion driven. Mr. Adel, who also has ZX 77 and a Nissan Patrol shares to us that his future classic car will be a Cadillac 59.
“I love to maintain and collecting classic cars. I hold them in my garage, where I make both minor and major adjustments to the cars”, Mr. Adel told GAZ with pride.
Because of the higher suspension he used for the car, it is different from other models of classic Chevy C10 available. Mr. Khalid, who considers that motivation can drive you to the limits said that, he has participated in many competitions such as Batelco Car show and AMA Car show.
The C/K was Chevrolet and GMC’s full-size pickup truck line from 1960 until 1998 in the United States, from 1965 to 1999 in Canada, from 1964 to 2001 in Brazil, and from 1975 to 1982 in Chile. The first Chevrolet pickup truck was introduced in the year 1924. The word “C” indicated two-wheel drive and “K” indicated four-wheel drive.
The redesign was radical in visual aspect at the time, particularly the cab, diverging from typical American pickup truck designs of the era. Apart from being near twins, the Chevrolet and GMC pickups looked like nothing else on the road. The third-generation trucks are officially known as the “Rounded-Line” generation. GM’s “Rounded-Line” moniker spot lit the pickup’s rounded-lines or rounded styling cues that were merged into the style. These rounded-lines let in rounded windshield corners, rounded cab roof, sloped rounded doors which cut high into the cab roof carrying off the roof height, rounded front fenders, and rounded pickup box corners which allowed for rounded or curved wraparound tail lamps. The design also featured strong typical curved shoulder lines which rounded out below the beltline. The curved shoulder line continued across the back tailgate on Chevrolet Fleet side and GMC Wideside models.
