Gay Vreken drove her Kelly green '47 Ford pickup to the show. Her husband completed work on the cab before he passed away in 2003. It sat for a year then, with encouragement of friends, she and her son Eric went to work on the build. The metalwork on this truck is remarkable. The cab was stretched 6 inches and widened 6 inches and each door was constructed from two doors. Seats are from a Mercury Mountaineer, an ididit column, and VDO gauges on the dash. The frame is custom-built by Progressive Automotive, engine is a ZZ4 Chevy 350 small-block crate joined to a 700R4 Overdrive, 9-inch Ford rear, and a bed from Notrhern Classic Trucks.
