    Seems like Stacy did a review of project vehicles, and said the owner changed engines or axles or something for the worse of the vehicle.

    He said the person he sold it too sold it to a guy that stripped it for the running gear and put it in a buggy. The pics he had of it showed it basically destroyed.

    i think it ended up on a used car lot with everything good taken out of it... they put the engine in something else and put their old engine in it. all the running gear was switched back to stock...had crappy tires too if iirc..:( guess these posts have busted your bubble...so ill quit talking and let you grieve...:doah:

    Was sold after the build, wheeled and used like it should. Then a guy in houston bought it and took the axles, engine all that and put it on his buggy and put 1/2 ton stuff under it. It ended up on a used car lot in Houston and then CRUSHED!!

    Many of the vehicles built a few years ago at the start of Trucks! were sold and also crushed.

    Stacy has said he will never sell the vehicles he does to be crushed. He will only sell to people who will use them for what they are.

    Your right, i beleive it was built 1/2 tons in it when he built it and the new owner put factories under it when he put it all in his rig.

    Big blaze wasn't crushed it was sold at some used car lot in South Texas 2-3 years ago (J7 auto or something). It was just a shell of what it was when Stacey had it. However the owner of the used car lot knew it was off TRUCKS so I bet he still wanted way to much for it.
