The Chevy Three-Way | StanceWorks







Every now and then we meet people in our lives that amaze us. People with motivation and determination; people who are driven. Aaron, who some of you may know as Maximus, is one of those people.




Last week, the minitruck scene in Australia had one of the biggest annual shows of the year, and the oldest on going show to date, the East Coast Cruise. People travel from across the country to be attend, but little did they know that Aaron had a surprise in store for the show.






Aaron calls it a Chevy 3-way. The cab is a 1951 Chevy, the engine is a modern fuel-injected 5.0L Chevy v8, and the floor pan and chassis is actually a Rodeo. Confused? I assumed some of you might be, since I figure most Americans will get stuck at “Rodeo”. No, there aren’t cowboys riding horses here.






The most amazing part of this whole build is the story behind it. Aaron, who was originally from Melbourne, moved up to Sydney to start working for one of the more well-known fabrication shops in Australia, The Chop Shop. 3 weeks before the East Coast Cruise (ECC), he was decided to make the drive down to Melbourne (which for the international viewers is a 12 hour drive one-way) to pick up the shell and chassis where they has been sitting dormant in his garage.




After driving 12 hours back to the workshop, the mission had begun. The target: make it to ECC. With nothing more than a cab in primer, a rodeo floor pan grafted in and a rolling stock chassis, the mission was seemingly impossible. With the hours of 7am to 4pm allocated to customers’ cars, Aaron dedicated his evenings until 2am (some nights 5am) to getting the project done. When Laurie, the owner of The Chop Shop, got back from the US, he and the rest of the crew helped chip in and do their part.




The tub was completely fabricated to suit the era of the vehicle, and although they ran out of time to completely finish it, you’ll have to trust me when I say it looks amazing so far. Aaron has said that next year it will be 100% finished, painted, trimmed and running, so an update will happen when the time comes.




For now, Aaron just wants to thank his dad Steve for all his help in rebuilding the cab, Chad Forward for all the help with the cad work, Laurie Starling for all the hours and motivation, The Chop Shop crew for all their help and support, The NC Australia Family and most importantly Mia his girlfriend. Until next time.

Same here don't get the stance, the build is cool. But why have it so low that it is un-drivable?


Most if not all of those builds, the vehicle is on Airbags...so they can slam it when it's parked, hit the switches, lift it back up, and drive on.


I like things low ;)

One of the things I love about Adams Forums is that as a group we have all sorts of tastes and can respect the work of others. Even though this truck isn't something that I would want I still admire it and recognize that the team that is doing that build has some seriously awesome skills and passion for doing what they are doing.


That was a serious amount of work done in a short time.

He isn't lying. He has convinced me to drop my truck even more lol. Peer pressure is an evil evil thing haha.


When I slammed my SS I was told two things:


1. Welcome to the Church of Low



2. You'll never be Low Enough now!

(so fricking true!):2thumbs:
