    Monday a friend from school came up and told me he had a friend selling a 67 chevelle with a 454 running and drivable for $700. got me pretty excited and I put aside some other things for a deal that I knew was too good to be true. went and looked at it today and it was a 67 nova and the motor doesnt come with it. still a good deal cause the body was in great shape but I decided that I dont have the time or money to mess with a car thats not driveable.

    so instead I bought an 83 4x4 chevy half ton with a good straight body.:D
    heres the funny part, no motor.:haha: I cant help it though, I love these trucks and cant pass up a good deal. now I own 3 of them and only have one motor.

    well the body is in pretty good shape on it but has no interior, no glass, no front clip. still needs some body work and new paint. prolly not worth the drive from CA to pick it up.
