    Ok, I guess I have to reply to this one.

    Hmm... I'll start in with the ones that aren't on my current "right now" list.

    1. 1955 Chevy Napco 3/4 ton 4x4 all original... on the back burner, but I want to do a full restoration

    2. 1968 Jeep Wagoneer- just get it running and driving again!

    3. Titanic- 1970 International Travelall body, to be crossbred with wy '80 Suburban someday.

    4. 1972 GMC Jimmy- need everything except whats there now which is body, frame lift and rear axle. Also on the back burner.

    5. 1974 International Scout II- get it running and driving, needs clutch, carb, and alternator.

    Now the stuff that is more current, meaning a project in progress right now or within this year that are non-fleet or temporary vehicles:

    1. 1983 Chevy K20- motor swap, tranny and t-case, and rear end swap.

    2. 1974 Chevy 2wd shortbed- hmmm... maybe a 350 conversion, fix it up some to re-sell or just drive.

    3. 1982 K5 Blazer- needs motor, transfer case.

    4. 1984 K5 Blazer. It's a frame and body right now. I think I'll make it drive again.

    5. 1980 Chevy 3/4 ton 4x4- needs motor, tranny and T-case put in.

    6. 1982 Chevy K30 6.2 Diesel that I robbed the 60 out of, just need to swap out the rear end and then put it up for sale.

    7. Swamp Thing- big ideas, 0 progress- supposedly going to have a built 350, 44" tires and minimal lift, with a 4-door cab on a regular wheelbase longbed frame.

    8. The race truck- '72 Chevy, was a 2wd, maybe make it a 4x4 to run tough truck and obstacle courses.

    9. The Pontiac Ventura- put it on a K5 frame.

    And current projects within the fleet that are in progress or to be done within the next year or two:

    1. My '81 Suburban- needs the 454 rebuilt, put in an NV4500 and 205, and 4.56 gear'd Dana 60 and 14-bolt.

    2. The Orange Blazer- rebuild and put heads on 327, bolt TH350 to NP205 and put into Blazer, bolt in 4.56 14-bolt rear with Detroit, shave the housing, and bolt in Dana 44 front with detroit, take the top off, switch out bumpers.

    3. The Blue Blazer- finish bolting in the Dana 60, put 4" lift rear springs under ut, and 14-bolt with Detroit, make a rear driveline, and have 400SB rebuilt and put that in.

    4. The Camo Blazer- Do rear shackle flip, bolt in 14-bolt rear with 4.188's, finish bolting in 60 front, put a motor in it (454 or 402), bolt on bumpers and winch.

    5. The '82 Stepside, needs 454 taken out, and other 454 I have re-cammed, bolt closed chamber heads on, and put that 454 in it, finish painting it rattlcan gloss black.

    6. The little Crew Cab- build a better 454 towing motor and swap that in, put NV4500 in it, fix or replace death wobble Dana 60.

    7. The Truck Blazer- it runs and drives, but still has a few bugs with the freshened up 396, fix those, replace nose clip, and put cut-out flares on it.

    8. The '80 GMC- Pay off roller 454, have motor freshened up and put it in, put 4.88 gear'd axles under it, swap out front and rear springs, replace 1 fender, and re-paint.

    9. The '85 truck- strip down '85 GMC K35 to bare frame, put 350 motor in, SM465/205, 14-bolt rear and Dana 60 front, 6" lift, and strip down other '85 Chevy truck and use that body.

    10. The red truck, clean and paint frame, do some porting to heads, bolt heads on new 350, put motor in frame with 465/205, swap body onto frame.

    11. The Big Crew Cab- finish installing 12" lift, with shackle flip in rear and relocate spring hangers, build some motor... 468 or 496 for it, put moto in with 2wd SM465 and divorced Dodge NP205, and get two more rims for the 44" tires, put 5.13 gears in a 14-bolt and Dana 60, put it all together.

    12. 1976 Buick Electra, transplant 455 motor and Th400 front bad 2dr body to good 4dr body, replace freeze plugs, set car frame with removed axle and suspension, onto a 4x4 frame with a divorced T-case.

    13. 1987 Utility Bed truck, paint the rolling '83 1-ton 4x4 frame, bolt up the exhaust, bolt in the TH400/205, take 454 out of motorhome or flatbed, add an aluminum intake, and put motor in, then bolt the '87 body onto the frame and change wiring to work from TBI to carb setup.

    14. 1964 International- doesnt start, so I need to make it run, also fix burnt up drivers side exterior from a camp trailer that burnt down it was parked next to.

    15. My '79 motorhome- make gauges work, flush out main fuel tank, pull out and rebuild radiator, straighten out rear bumper that I bent.

    16. The '77 Chevy truck- not much left of it, but a part of me is determined to use the body somewhere somehow.

    17. Oh yeah, the D4 Cat. Make it run so I can use it.

    I'm sure within the next month there will be additions to the list.
