    1971 Chevy Cheyenne - Internet Gamble
    Many an owner's first experience with an Internet purchase leaves something to be desired. Either the object is smaller than the image led you to believe, or it's not the quality you thought you were paying for. Without a money-back guarantee, you've probably learned a valuable lesson. Terry Bradley's first experience purchasing a vehicle from photos on the Internet was a lesson he will not soon, if ever, forget.
    The vehicle for sale description read: This '71 Chevy is a "bad boy" equipped with a 390hp TPI LT engine, runs smooth, and is fast. Features include power steering, A/C, and aluminized exhaust from headers to rear of truck. Great condition from bumper to bumper-no rust anywhere. Terry states, "What the description should have read: The floorboards, rocker panels, and cab corners are rusted through, but cleverly filled and painted to look like new. The truck was wrecked and the frame bent-and the body mounting holes had been elongated so that the bed could be bolted to the frame and aligned with the cab. Many other problems have been hidden or disguised."
    It's hard to believe these extremely poor conditions, among others, were discovered hidden under the layers of fresh paint on his '71 Chevrolet Cheyenne when Terry took it to his home in Waverly, Kansas. But like many truck owners, Terry decided to do the right thing. The right thing was to take his truck down to the bare chassis and start over with reliable parts installed by an experienced shop. The experienced shop was Hot Rods by Rohrer's.
    The entire rebuilding process was accomplished in a relatively short time period, considering how far the '71 Chevy Cheyenne had to go. Terry wanted his truck to be something extra special and insisted the paint "pop" when viewers saw it. Plus, it had to stand out in a crowd. We think this was accomplished perfectly, and show judges seem to confirm this fact. Terry's truck has been selected for an award at each of the shows it attended this past summer.
    Terry is now looking forward to many years of enjoyment in his professionally built and beautifully finished '71 Chevy Cheyene. He states the restoration experience has made him new friends-and he would like to thank everyone who was involved with the process . . . with the possible exception of the previous owner
