EXPLAINING how it was built to last, Mooroopna resident, Peter Gascoyne was all too happy to show off his Dodge Pick-up with a peculiar difference.
Boasting a self installed front grill and an unusual interior, where Peter has used synthetic lawn instead of the typical carpet, his ‘66 Dodge Pick-up, nicknamed Black Betty, has had a slight makeover, having been resprayed from Green to Black by friends Bully and Purssy.
Peter spoke with The Adviser saying he decided to use the synthetic lawn to help keep his interior cleaner.
“Because I work in concreting and building I thought it would make it easier if I used lawn in the car instead of carpet,” Peter said.
