THE CREW HELPS WITH SQUAREBODY SYNDICATE’S LATEST C-10
The concept of the One ‘N’ Done events is fairly simple: put together a team of amazing truck builders from across the country and get them to help work on a truck in less than 24 hours. It’s also engineered to gather friends around a common love—trucks— and share some good times. It’s one part social club and another part truck build, together equaling fun for everyone.
Last year’s event was a blast, and that set a high bar for this go around. The truck in question was Joe Yezzi’s Syndicate 01, a ’73 Chevrolet Silverado he’s building for the 2015 SEMA Show that will appear in the Royal Purple booth, as well as to showcase his company, Squarebody Syndicate. In the past few months, you’ve seen this truck blown apart in the pages of the C-10 Builder’s Guide, as well as in the pages of Street Trucks. When the event started, the truck was in several pieces. The bed was off for bodywork, the cab was up on the lift, and the chassis was mostly assembled, but still needed some things here and there to be perfect. Mostly, the truck needed an engine and transmission.
So that was the goal for the event: install the special DEL-S3 engine into the chassis, drop the cab back on to ensure that it fits correctly, and then head out to the bar. Sounds like a good time for sure, right?
Well it was. Although this year’s event was more of a private affair, what with it being held at Joe’s home in Arizona, it still attracted quite the crowd. Sam and Rob from C-10 Nation/C-10 Talk came out not only to provide color commentary, but also to interview everyone on hand. The man, the myth, the legend, Dino Battilana himself was there to talk smack and turn a wrench or two. Then there was Del Uschenko of Delmo’s Speed & Kustom plus his crew of experts all ready to get greasy for a good time. Of course, lots of other people showed up, too, including Jeremy from Tre 5 Customs (and Street Trucks, naturally), Seth from Switch Suspension, the team from GSI, and John Oro from C/10 Club. In fact, there were so many people there that it was a bit hard to keep track.
Who knows what they’ll have up for next year’s event, but we know you’ll want to be there for sure. Maybe Sam will even make some of his legendary turkey sausage.
