    It is in really good shape. Only rust spot I found was on the driver door. Power windows, locks what have you. I convinced him last year to yank out the heat and AC out of it so it doesn't have that, but I have a remedy in mind. It could use a good waxing and it will shine like a jewel.


    I have thought about taking it up on the 21st. It just depends on how quick I sell my truck. It needs some work, like re seal the engine and re-build the carb.
    Loaded, pfft. Only way I am loaded is if I haven't crapped in a few days.....:D :D


    It is an 85

    According to the sticker on the Radiator Support













































    5.7l 350
    I thought it was a 305 until I spied the sticker and was shocked when I seen it as GM was in a stock 305 mood those few years.


    Yep, need a bigger yard too. I think this will max me out on vehicles right now. Good thing I got rid of the Mercedes a few weeks ago....

    Sorry guys, I had a Blonde Moment and read the freaking sticker wrong. it is an 83.:doah::doah:

    Looks oretty sitting next to the carport. I wonder what the neighbors think now.

    Big thanks to Tim (gotlabs) for locating a trailer and helping me load it onto the trailer. I think that was the easist load I have ever put onto a trailer. Would have been easier if my help hadn't of backed out. He is pretty useful even with only one hand.:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    If you don't want the 38's right away. I've got a set of 35 boggers that we can let trim the fenders back during the THUMP!!!!! If you need any fab work let me know. Like SHACKLES, SHACKLE HANGERS, and what ever else you can think of. Man if you keep going like you're going I figure you should have about 50 or so trail rigs. Ruffly about one a week, sell one or two here and there thru out the year. You should probably go ahead and look into getting a dealers license. I see where the LOADED thing comes into play.. Can I borrow some?
