    Hope you had the opportunity to see Trucks today. The Wicked Willy is more than a show car w/big tires.

    Re: \'55 Willy, I hope you saw Trucks today.

    I was going to post this!!!!!!
    I watched it today and was gonna see if any of you saw it, THAT'S GONNA BE ME!!!!! I had to leave for my great grandmas 94th but I was able to see bits and pieces of the wheeling part. I love that thing!!!. Thats what gave me the final push to go ahead and make mine. His running 6" lift and 35's on that one,LOL. I can do 35's with no lift because of the Blazer frame. I'v seen the build up of that from the first episode.
    Did you guys see the body roll when he took the exit,LOL they are top heavy. If they replay it tomorrow you know where I'll be/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif
