    yeah it's coming together pretty good, far from done though,

    wes, that's funny you mentioned that, his first ride was a dropped S-10 with some lowrider wire wheels. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    his second was better. he built this:

    but decided he needed more room that toy provided...

    oh, he doesn't have a username yet, he just got a computer so he'll be joining soon....

    he has a 350 with a 400/203 combo, but he also has the 454 from the K30 the axles came from. he is gonna rebuild that and drop it in. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
