James' taste in custom cars runs toward unusual Chevys and this '71 Suburban is proof of that. Gary Hodges of Hodges Body Shop in Lyons built this stunning silver-over-black truck and sold it to one of James' friends. James later talked his buddy out of the Suburban, which runs a supercharged 350 crate motor.
A small finishing touch was the addition of much-later model El Camino badging to the rear fenders. The emblems lead to some interesting debates among car guys about whether or not such a vehicle was actually built in 1957.
