This site is about my truck, my 1971 GMC C10. It was my first vehicle that I purchased when I was 15 years old in May of 1997. Since purchasing it I have spent lots of time and money turning it into what it is today, and continue doing more to it. It is my daily driver, although it hasn't always been. I have had other vehicles along the way while this one sat in the garage, but this one has always been my primary affection. This site is pretty much dedicated to my truck...ORANGE!
When I first decided to build a full blown website for my truck, choosing a site name was important. With Orange.com being taken by the large mobile provider, I had no chance of ever getting that one. So, SlickOrange.com it was. Not that my truck is the slickest out there, but it is slick, and it is definitely orange. So, it works.
This is what I suppose most of you came to this page for?
The truck, as I mentioned is a 1971 GMC C10. The 67-72 Chevy/GMC trucks are pretty popular, and are a favorite among collectors and auto enthusiasts worldwide.
The truck was originally purchased in Birmingham, AL. I am the second owner of the truck. It wasn't optioned out too well, so everything has been an add-on pretty much. Power steering, power brakes, air, nothing was on it stock.
