    Well, this is how my week has gone. got 91 S-10 for the wife to drive for winter, bought 87 full size to make into plow truck, before either truck has made it home, they are both reconstructed (in my mind so far) S-10 is the minne-me, the 87 is the plow truck, with 4-6" lift, 3/4 ton axels and 35's. and then today I found 2, yes 2 4x4 long box trucks both with plows, neither runs at this time, but have many, many parts for ONLY 800.00 for both!! well, there is the plow I need and the 3/4 ton axels. I am taking the 4" lift out of my 73 to go bigger, so now I have most of what I need! what Is wrong with me!!!!!!!!! I just wanted a plow truck!!! Oh, the one truck has a 400 smallblock in it. needs one head. alternater bolt broke in head and moron tried to drill it and missed and drilled into water passage. was supposed to run good until that! I will sell, but only as a rebuilder. It also is supposed to have a cam. It has an edelbrock intake, but the took edelbrock carb off for another truck.

    It is just to hard to pass up the good deals. I am still kicking myself in the ass for not buying that 90k5 that Wayne got.

    It is an addiction with only one treatment... MORE TRUCKS!!!

    When I moved from my 5 acre rental property to a mobile home park I just started stashing trucks at 2-3 friends houses in the country. When I only had one parking space available I started stacking them for storage /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
