    lol... that thing was definately built many many moons ago... But with a some changes it would be a run muddin rig... Those shocks in the front are hillarious.. The pinion snout on the rear end looks long as hell.. Wtf is up with that.

    a paint job.. and fixing the obvious.. Id pay 2g's for it..

    I dont quite understand the shocks, esp the ones pointed at the front hangers. Maybe to help w/ axle wrap, from the front blocks, but wait, theres no front dshaft. Also, why is the rear axle pointed too high? Normally it aint pointed up enough. *scratching head, pondering*

    Ive seen those shocks like that in the rear before... I dunno if they came stock in the rear... and usually when i seen them there was only one.

    isnt the rear shaft a 2 piece...meaning its only 2wd? it just has a SFA on it...i love all the random shocks in the front. i wonder how many of them do something?

    From the video, it looks like it's not only a 2wd, but a one-legged 2wd "monster truck". I actually do like the stars and stripes and the old body style, but that's it. Anyways, to each, his own. I saw that a couple days ago and laughed.

    The shocks that are horizontal in the rear are to help axle wrap and also wheel spin.. It is something that you don't see much anymore but seemed to be popular 10-15 years ago.. My buddy has a 72 like that with a similar shock set up on the rear but not on the front..

    I think the vids were to just show that it will run and roll, not so much for action shots :D It looks like with a few changes it would make a good mud truck :waytogo:

    WOW! Those videos are so hardcore it makes me miss our old 86 Cutlass Ciera. I had to climb a pile of dirt like that once to avoid a flooded ditch and it managed with less effort than that thing.. :haha: :haha:

    I like the hell out of that truck.

    I think the paint scheme looks dumb, and the suspension and drive train need some work and the axles are way too small for those tires, but take the same idea and combine it with some rockwells and I would love to have it.
