His parents and Grandpa - finished the truck and brought it out to the Git Down to surprise Nate. It worked. We were able to get Nate, Dad, and Grandpa all in the same room and capture their thoughts. 

Mrs Maggie Leigh Doiser from episode #50, and her husband Jason made their way out to the Git Down for a great time and reunite with old friends. They left with an LS3! Winning the Midway Chevrolet LS3 raffle! Damn Son!

We also recap the weekends festivities with Mr. Chevy Only Dino as well. This is the 6th Git Down and it keeps getting better like Johnny Walker Blue!

SEMA 2016


Reno Heon.

Hell Ya! We were able to sit down with Reno Heon from AccuAir at SEMA 2016. The guys from AccuAir set up a small recording studio just of of their show room display and it worked. It worked perfect. Reno and I were siting right next to each other - really, like 4-6 inches and we had a great time getting the C10 Nation caught up on everything going on with The Leader in Air Suspension.

AccuAir just released their brand new ENDO-T, ENDO- VT, and coming Spring/Summer 2017 their new ENDO-CVT will be available to all of us!

Reno and I talk about the history of the company.

From the first few employee’s they had and how most of them are still with the company 15 years later.

It hasn’t always been easy! Reno talks about some o f the struggles they had in the beginning and working with family.

Reno admits that a ton of hard work, great timing, and some luck has helped his company prosper into what is now 15 years later the industry leader in Air Suspension. But admits that their customers are also such a big part of their success. Using AccuAir on their builds, promoting the products and being such loyal customers.

By day 4 of SEMA, Reno knows that the reaction to their new ENDO system is beyond well received by the masses. Their booth was popping all week in anticipation for the products. Scott Lattinen from SicChops was in the booth this year with their killer 62 Suburban, converted to Blazer - “Overcast”. Damn Son!

Reno, dives into the specifics of the ENDO, talking about the tank and its capacity, the R&D that went into if and how it is DOT approved.

The ENDO-VT, which is the new tank with the valves integrated into the new aluminum tank. The values are split, 2 on each side how ever the end user chooses.

We talk a lot about the new ENDO - CVT, which will be a compressor inside the tank along with the internal valves. So Rad Ass!

Multiple questions about the new system arise from so many variables:


How much air will the tank be able to hold if there is a compressor inside?

-What about moisture inside of the unit?

-How fast will the compressors work?

-What’s new about the valves - “Flow Control”?

-How much is all of this going to be?

-Can I build it as I go?

-Can I use my old elevel?

-What is the draw from the compressor?

Reno answers them ALL!

Reno reflects on SEMA 2016.



Are the two words that come to his mind! I am sure exhausted is in there too.

We start to wrap up and Reno talks about what the future holds for AccuAir and air suspension. Reno, Dustin and the team have no plans of slowing things down. They have big ideas and just the team to make it happen.

Their marketing team, behind Ben Terry continues to push the envelope and bring us the much desired interactive videos, tech, and up to date information.

The future looks bright for this company and I was honored to sit down with Reno at SEMA to get the story. Thank you AccuAir for taking the time to give us the story.


Reno, Dustin, Ben, Derek, Lefty, Taylor - the entire staff, we appreciate your time. Ronnie

Episode #34 is brought to you by these kick ass companies!





What a story! Bryan (Landaburu) is excited to get back into the C10 Game. He grew up around C10 Trucks and his first car/truck was a C10. So he finally finds the C10 for him. After some long negotiations with the owner, they finally come to terms. Bryan is ecstatic, he's just purchased a beautiful 1965 C10. 

Now the fun part of deciding on how he should get the truck home to Reno, NV. Bryan does a TON of research and finally decides to go with Passport Transport, an enclosed, very reputable carrier. 

Well, this is where the story takes a twist. During transport, it appears that something happened to the brakes that caused the trailer to catch fire and Bryan's C10 was sitting in the Hot Zone!

Tune in to hear what happens next and why after months of frustration and anger, Bryan's story has a very happy ending. 

Welcome (back) to the C10 Nation, Bryan!

In this episode I also talk with Kathy a "Open Transport" Broker, her and her husband also are owner/operators of an open trailer along with Kathy's Broker business, so she provides us with a unique perspective to some common mistakes and Pitfalls to look out for. I also talk with Tanner from Reliable Carriers, he is an Operations Manager with the company. We talk about the benefits to using a closed carrier with a long history of satisfied customers.

A lot of great info in this one, I hope you dig it - Ronnie

We ended up staying through Saturday and mad the trip down to Conroe with the GMG crew as they were getting ready to unveil their KILLER 49' Chevrolet truck.

When we got to LST I was blown away, so much going on and tons of bad ass rides. We ended up setting up shop around the C10 Club Texas (we are a C10 Podcast) and man we couldn't have started in a better place.

Alright Alright!!

Who is Chris Stafford (@severdchris) - The Bayou Builder?

Chris is a Husband, Father, Builder, Serviceman, and a Blue Collar Mill Worker - thats who he is!! DAMN SON!!!!!

You might be familiar with Chris’s 1966 C10 Custom that was recently named the Street Trucks, Truck of the Year!! Wow, congrats and well deserved.

Chris tells the C10 Nation how he got interested in cars and trucks - at a young age he would play with Matchbox cars and like most of us,  this innocent childhood past time became a lifetime passion!

Chris is married and has a young daughter - the “Hotrod Diva!” - His family is in full support of Chris and his passion. Chris is raising his family #C10Strong with that Severed Style.

Speaking of Severed, Severed Ties is his other family. Chris tells C10 Talk how he go involved with Severed and why he choose this club over any other. He explains the benefits of being in Severed Ties and we discuss the Club Culture.

Chris, has been in the National Guard since High School. He served a tour in Afghanistan, as a Bridge Builder. Spending a year away from his family and 6 months out of Country. When he returned plans changed on ol’ Clyde. Chris’s Uncle was a big reason why he got into Trucks and he had passed away when Chris was away serving his country. Chris’s way to pay tribute to his Uncle was build the truck in his Honor. Clyde (SEMA 2014) became the Sherman Special. Special it was - if you can’t recall this 66 C10 just take a glance at Chris’s Instagram @severdchris and you’ll know exactly why it was on the cover of one of last years C10 Builders Guide and ended up being the Street Trucks TOTY.

Chris tells us about two builds that he is getting ready to start as well. a 1959 Apache “Thunder Chief” and a SEMA Squarebody C10 named ‘“Silver Fox” perfect!

Chris has big plans for these trucks and we know the C10 Nation will be watching this builder continue to put out killer Stafford Garage rides.

He has a recipe that is proven to be popular, so heres to SEMA 2016. We look forward to seeing the Silver Fox and we hope this SEMA build follows in the foot steps of its predecessor Clyde.

Thanks Chris for taking the time to sit down with C10 Talk and bringing your story to the C10 Nation. Thank you for your service to our Country and a special thanks goes out to your family for allowing you the time and support to do what you love.

Heres to 2016, Cheers bro - Ronnie
