Project Coalorado

Nick Psomas is a Southern California car guy who, like most of us, can't leave anything stock. His collection includes a track focused widebody 2006 Mustang GT, a 1968 Camaro, a 2016 Fiat 500 Abarth, and this 2016 Chevrolet Colorado which was recently featured at the 2017 SEMA show.

Nick purchased the Colorado as soon as the diesel models were available and almost immediately dropped the truck off at Eibach to be used in developing their new line of Colorado shocks. A fan of the Eibach brand, Nick quickly became a brand ambassador in the Chevrolet Colorado community and with the success of the shocks, Eibach brought the truck back in to develop the coil lift springs that would become the Pro-Truck Lift Kit Stage 1. With Nick being local and since his truck already had their lift, Eibach asked to use Nick's truck at the 2017 SEMA show.

With just months to put the truck together for SEMA Nick started piecing together his build from aftermarket had already developed, but some items just didn't fit the overland adventure look that Nick's design called so he had them custom fabricated like the bed mounted dual spare carrier. Working closely with Eibach's head of marketing Mark Krumme to finalize the design, the team worked with the top aftermarket manufacturers to get the truck SEMA ready.
