    alrighty yall, guess what.

    I might buy another truck, 1977 chevy shortbed, 350,350,203, the guy says it runs great but the delema lies in here:

    I also have a 79 gmc k20 sitting behind my barn! and a 1978 scout frame! 1987 shortbed that is nice and daily driver, 1989 geo spectrum for gas milage, crap loads of parts at my parents house that I need to move over here! I am 21 and have owned 13 vechiles if not more!

    The 1945 runs but clutch messed up and I do not have the tools over at my house to fix it or space in the barn with concrete floor. The 1970 needs a radiator, coresupport and to be timed good, plus have a seat instaled, steering bolted up. The k20 I bought to fix up my 1987 chevy (3/4 conversion then lift and 35's).

    I have too many projects!! and I crave this one that should be ready to run now.

    help a sick person out :confused: :(

    here's an idea, GET TO WORK :D

    Just work on one at a time, then you'll see progress and won't get discouraged that nothing is getting done :o

Believe me I know I have 3 projects that never end my Burban my Jeep and my race car. I am trying to get some of this stuff to a stopping point before fall so I can enjoy them and my family.

    Congratulations on being a dad soon!! I here what yor saying guys my boys are 9 and 12 now :doah: can't believe it. I have learned that if you make sure you take care of your wife and kids and accompanying responsibilities first then you can balance a little bit of time and $$ towards your projects ;) .
    If it were me I wouldn't take on any more projects until you take care of the ones you've already got. :D

    i think a lot of us know how you feel. i have my 89 burb dd and an 89 crew dual that needs engine rebuilt. still runs but it isnt reliable. getting an 84 cucv. wanting; fiero, 4 door s-blazer, blazer (2wd conversion) or another shortbed (since brother is buying mine), all for projects. and I am sure I am leaving a couple out :D :waytogo:
