Howdy, I’m Woogeroo.

Welcome to my page about Matraca, my 1965 Chevrolet C10 long wheel base, step side pickup truck.

above photo taken on 08/13/2016

On this page I share photos, captions & other assorted details of various things about my 1965 Chevrolet C10 step side truck, pictured above. In some cases, there are detailed explanations as to how I repaired certain items, etc..

See the Details section for specs on the drive train and what not, if that interests you.

The Gallery & Projects section shows the many photos I have taken since acquiring the truck in 2003. They cover all areas of my tinkering and use of the truck. Check out the different sections of photos to see all sorts of different areas of the truck; inside, underneath and with out.
