    I\'m back!

    My membership ended abrutly without notice, and I could no longer post here. I just renewed my membership today. Anyhow I just got myself a new project (money pit). I thought I would let everyone check it out. Here is a pic,

    http://community.webshots.com/photo/55621291/55621396TqPyow

    It is supposed to be a 1951 1.5 ton GMC, but after looking at in person I'm thinking it is closer to between 2 and 5 ton rated. It is bigger than it looks in the pic. What do guys think of my new tow rig! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Re: I\'m back!

    Just incase you have not found it yet... check out www.stovebolt.com for info on your new tow rig. Looks like a great project. I am building a 1954 IHC COE for my tow rig. I have just been collecting parts to put it together so far...

    I guess I just took for granted you would be putting in a 8v71 Detroit, with a 6 speed. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
    Cummins makes "just 6 cylinders" lol /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Re: I\'m back!

    I figured a truck that big, I would be able to fit anything I want in there, NOT! This thing is an antique, I don't want to be chopping it up. If I could squeeze a 5.9 Cummins in there that would be sweet. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif What would be really awesome would be to shoehorn a 1954 GMC V-12 in there! /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif My plans are to restore/hot rod it, then make interchangeagle beds for it. A flatbed that will take racks, a utility body to use it for work ( If I ever go back into business for my self, and most importantly a camper/RV body to use it for traveling and towing the burb! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    In its current condition I can't even get it into my driveway! /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif But add $20,000 or $30,000 and it'll make it to Florida. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif Which is good since by the time I get it done I'll be old enough to retire! /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif Suzie? Let's just say she is a very forgiving, understanding wife. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
