    Alright, here are some pictures I snapped at the Chevy High Performance tent today.

    Old pickup body(no idea what year, don't know that old stuff) on either a Colorado chassis, may be an S10 chassis, but as far as I know its a Colorado engine:

    I was living in Massachusetts when the very first 4WD mag event was held at Bloomsburg, so I drove down to check it out. Lots of cool rides, crazy monster truck racing, and it was hotter 'n hell standing around in the sun. :eek1: Some of the neatest rigs there were found outside, in the parking lot. :rolleyes:

    Never would have thought 49's would look small :eek1: :eek1:

    and call me a poser if you want but even though they're totally impractical and pretty much useless--based solely on looks I still kinda like the BIG trucks.

    If I only had the money one of them show trucks got sunk into them to put into mind. Lookout Mount Everest. I like them but useless. It's like have a neon green car. Gets noticed everywhere but can't go off the pavement. Nice Pictures, looks like heaven to me. :)

    IT has a 6.2? I didn't realize. I was more focused on the messed up driveline and 44 front axle.

    Maybe a Vortec 6.0L bored out a bit? I dunno, just a guess...

    I get the feeling that thing's not street-legal in NY, even though it's tagged.
    The lettering on the bug deflector sums it up nicely. Looks like a 10B in the rear too. The owner actually spent the $$$ to go hydro on that thing - guess those fairgrounds and trailer decks are hard to drive on...
    And while we're picking at it, what's up with those sorta-traction-bar-kinda links from the front crossmember to the spring plates? Seems to me that those, along with the half-circle leaf springs, would pretty much guarantee no front suspension action...

    They surley can't drive that thing very fast in four wheel drive. How could you get a decent driveline angle without clocking the diff?
