Talk about the ultimate reader’s truck. Doug Padelford of Artesia, California, has created probably one of the slickest Syclones to hit the pavement. Starting with a black ·91 GMC Syclone, the truck was shipped to Classics By Bernt in Stanton, California, for a subtle strip job. Bernt used House of Kolor silver, orange, red and purple to create the lower body striping you see here. The truck was lowered slightly and fitted with gold-plated 17- inch Boyds wheels shod with P285/35ZR17 Goodyears up front and P3l5/35ZR17s Good years at the rear. What really makes this truck rock, literally, is the killer sound system that fits underneath the electric/hydraulic hard tonneau. The system utilizes eight Punch 30 amps and a Pioneer AM/FM/ CD head unit along with a 10-disc Sony CD changer. Two Fosgate equalizers dole out sound through two to-inch Clearwater Design woofers, two 6.5- inch midranges, four 4-inch Pioneer midranges and four Pioneer tweeters. While most of the speakers arc mounted in the cab, the woofers and electronics are housed in a special bed-mounted compartment. The entire system is remote-controlled via the truck’s alarm remote.
