Welcome to yet another primered appearance of The Construction Zone. We hope that by seeing more unfinished rides in the raw you'll come up with some new ideas of your own to complete the ride that's collecting cobwebs in your garage. We can definitely use your help to get the word out that every show-stopper was once a primer and guidecoat-covered beast with mods galore. Now sit back and check out the newest inductees into The Construction Zone.

Miscellaneous: While making a routine run to the auto parts store, Shane was pulled over for his loud exhaust and convertible top. The VIN tag was at home, so the cops "had to impound it to see if it was stolen because people do this to cars and trucks and then sell them as new." That's a direct quote from the cop. The truck is a '72, and he was worried that Shane was going to try and sell it as new. Go figure.
Future Plans: Truck driven to every show and to work
Special Thanks: Shane's wife Lorraine / Shane's grandpa / Properly Grounded / Mike Krug and Bill Ken / everyone else who helped.
