1976 CHEVY LUV: Project McLuvin

Our 1976 Chevy Luv, McLuvin, is going under the knife for some major upgrades. Follow along as we take this Light Utility Vehicle and turn it into a full-blown street terror. The only thing that won’t be touched on this truck will be the paint job. Everything else is a free game, and we plan to utilize the performance aftermarket to the fullest extent. Our end goal will be a 1,000 horsepower tire melting machine with all of the creature comforts you could ask for.
