    friend of mine called me earlier this evenign and told me he knows a kid who has a 4x4 and wants a shortbed chevy, in which i have one out here i stuck a 250ci engine into but havent found last few parts i need to make it driveable, so i go to the nearby town that the kid with the 4x4 is and go to look at it and its an 83 or 84 and is a longfleet silverado two tone dark blue and gray with stock 6 lug rallies still on it, he had pulled the original 700r4 and 208 and put in a th350 and 203 from a 70s 4x4, but he cant find a front shaft that will fit, so he has given up and is coming to look at the shortbed here anytime now, and if he likes it then we are trading, he wants a shortbed for the 454 engine he has, shortbed are rare around here he has had zero luck finding a single one,

    will find out tonight /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
    wish me luck
