We had a great turnout this last Saturday for our inaugural event. Our C/10 Club Utah Meet and Meat BBQ at Murray Park was a great success with nearly 30 trucks and lots of good people. C/10 Club Utah prepared and served up 75 pounds of pulled pork, as well as hot dogs, chips, sodas, and cake. Club members also heavily supported the event by bringing a wide variety of salads and deserts.
Thank you to everyone who supported the event and brought out their awesome trucks. It was a wonderful time making new friends and C/10 Club Family. In the end we had just what C/10 Club is all about, GOOD PEOPLE, COOL TRUCKS, and GREAT TIMES!
Our next event will be our Cinco de Mayo party which will take place on Friday, May 05, 2023 from 6-9 PM at Jurassic Tacos in West Jordan, Utah! This Cruise-In event will be a fun party with some of the best tacos around. Jurassic Tacos was recently featured on Netflix, and you won’t want to miss their Al Pastor or their Carne Asada Tacos. We hope to see you all three with your Chevy trucks!
Our featured truck of the week from Stansbury Park, Utah is C/10 Club Utah member, Ryan Ashley’s ‘66 C10, “Goldie”. Originally built by club member Kevin Poulson from Northern, Utah, Goldie rocks a 5.3 LS Carbureted motor with Detroit Speed Cam backed by a 700R4 transmission. This truck is still sporting it’s original paint and is an all natural patina beauty. 🔥🔥🔥 . . . . .
Our featured truck of the week is C/10 Club Utah member Charles Ledbetter’s @xchuckx801 radical ‘70 C/10! 🔥🔥 Charles is an EMT here in Salt Lake, and was on the front lines during Covid. Nationally, C/10 Club @c10club recognizes First Responders and have created a special sticker to honor them. (See it below)
We will be presenting Charles with his at our Kickoff Meet and Meat on April 1, 2023 at Murray Park! Read more about all that Charles has done to his truck on our website, Link in Bio. Beautiful work on your truck Charles, and Thank you for all you do in our community! 🙏🙏
Here’s what Charles had to say about his truck:
1970 C10 Long bed. Yes a long bed!! When you get a project you will never know if you will put a few hundred or a few thousand dollars into it. It just explodes with your creation and vision and then you end up with what you have.
Sometimes you build with what you have and others seem to have opinions about it negatively. At the end of the day you created your best dream with what you have in your hands. And to me that’s better then anything else in the world rather it be a few hundred dollar build or a 1 million dollar build. Effort and time for this hobby and love of trucks is what brings us together. Not trends and displays of money. I rather be friends with a guy who has a old rusted truck then a guy who has a truck that won’t drive to the car show himself.

B&M automatic floor shifter.
Truck was built with money over a few years from back to back 60 to 90 hour work weeks working emergency medical services.
Sometimes the only way to complete a project is to work for the cost of the project before starting one this way short cuts are not taken and you actually build what you really wanted.
You can kinda say that I have held peoples heads together and got blood on my hands to earn this truck 😂
Not sure what it is about a old truck but there is nothing like it driving down the road ! Keep the pedal to the metal and the eye on the prize because in the end you will always win if you keep grinding away.
We spent the past weekend, 3/10/23- 3/11/23, in Chandler, Arizona at The Reunion Truck Show. This ‘80’s themed truck show is relatively new on the scene, in just its second year, and is put on by Ronnie Wetch from the C10 Talk podcast and his partner Sam Castronova. This show has become a mecca for builders in southwest area and there were a lot of beautiful builds on display. C/10 Club had a large presence at the show as well, with members making the trip from Washington, California, Texas, Arizona, Oregon, California, and our group from Utah. Awards were given out for best 80’s costume, and several other categories for the trucks. This is definitely a show that C/10 Club Utah will have on our calendar every year, so start planning for next year now! GOOD PEOPLE, GREAT TRUCKS, and GOOD TIMES!

Our featured truck of the week from Lehi, Utah is Bridger Searle’s @radass_80 1980 C/10!! 🔥🔥 Bridger bought his truck right after high school and it had typical Chevy rust spots.
