1991 Nissan Hardbody
When people talk about their "minitruckin' family" it's generally a figure of speech, but not in all cases. Jamie Stuart of Enid, Oklahoma, has been around minitrucks for most of her life because of her brother Jim.
She started out hanging out around her brother's shop, Stone Cold Customs, helping on trucks and learning what makes them tick. Then, she started going to shows and hanging out with other Negative Camber members, such as Jimmie Broyels and Chico, and she started to see some of the high-quality rides from all over. She also started to see for herself all of the fun shenanigans her brother had told her went on at the shows, and she was hooked.
Jamie thought it was time to get started on her first truck, so she and her brother started building an S-10. Night after night they worked on bodydropping and doing the bodywork on her new-found pride. The show season came all too quickly, and she did not have anything to roll with her big bro and friends.
Jim got a call from fellow club member Jamey Jordan telling him that he had his daily-driven Hardbody up for sale. This was the perfect clean daily that Jamie was looking for, so it was off to meet up with Mr. HandMade Jordan and get the truck back to Oklahoma. Once they got it back home, there was not much left to do to the truck to get it to the crusin' status they were after. They slapped a custom billet steering wheel on it and took out the sliding rag in favor of a sliding sunroof with a new headliner.
Now that Jamie finally has a ride of her own that she can cruise and show with her bro and club friends, she has been burning up the road and rolling to any and all shows that go on around the Midwest. When she's not at shows on the weekend, Jamie's in the shop at Stone Cold Customs working on her next show truck. If everything goes right, Jamie will be rolling her S-10 next year to show it off as well as the work she can do.
