I'm torn between customizing or keeping original the '57 GMC C100 project truck 
I have. The body is pretty straight with very little rust.  Most parts are 
there with the exception of the hood which I think came from a Chevy- it 
doesn't have the indent where the GMC hood ornament would fit in. The grill and 
bumper work is pretty much shot.  The bumper pods are rusted through. The 
original 347 runs but the exhaust is shot. I'm having difficulty finding parts 
for a '57 GMC motor or otherwise.  

Should I consider even trying to get close to original or should I just 
customize the beast?

I haven't driven it so I don't know what other suprises may be waiting.  I do 
know the drum brakes seem to be working great!

Anybody know of a good place to get parts for it?

Any advice as to what approach I should take would be greatly appreciated.
