As some of you may or may not know, I have enough parts in my garage to build two trucks....D60/14b, 5.13's, 4.10's, detroits, spool, hydro assist, hi-steer's, D44/12b, TH350, SM465, NP203, NP205, two 350's - one TBI, the other getting turned into a 383 - adapters, linkages, a bunch of ORD stuff for leaf spring vehicles, etc etc etc.... A TON of shiat! But getting them together has been a struggle . Recently I struck a deal with someone in California - to buy his already-built-and-running '73 Chevy that started out life as a K30 regular cab long bed. I couldn't build it for what I bought it for. I'm not proud that I bought it - I usually make fun of guys who 'buy-and-wheel', not 'build-and-wheel'. I believe in building your own truck. So, even though I paid this guy a while ago, and I've known I was getting it, I've not told anyone....mostly it's a pride thing. Anyway, this thing has been sitting at the shippers terminal near San Fran for nearly a month (since Apr 30), and it was finally picked up a couple days ago. The driver called me the day after he picked it up and said he was in Los Angeles at the moment, and should be to my house on this weekend. I can't wait!! Here it is getting loaded up on the flatbed (sweet rig, too....be a nice tow rig for weekend events ) By the way, a very special thanks goes from me to tunedportk5....apparently he is the assistant manager at the terminal where this truck sat for nearly a month. He found me, and kept me updated about the vehicles condition while in DAS's custody. I can't thank you enough, Eric. Here's some more pics, that I've been sent throughout the buying process. Here're the specs as I know 'em: Crate 350, with Edelbrock carb SM465 203/205 triple stick'd D60, open/14b, detroit, 4.56's Hydro assist high steering 4 linked front, 3 linked/ 1/4 elliptic in the rear Sway-away coilovers up front, RS9012's rear 3" body lift 108" wheelbase grooved 44" TSL's on 15" beadlocks Warn winch w/ remote on front Duralined interior S-10 bucket seats And probably some other interesting stuff I'm forgetting about. Now, I know I said I'm not proud of having a 'bought' truck, and not a 'built' truck. I plan to make this truck mine. I think the wheelbase is too short, and the truck is too tall. I plan on adding 10" to the rear, and maybe 2" up front. I will go to 42" Iroks on re-centered H1's. I will lower the center of gravity. The flatbed/tool boxes will be removed, making way for a full tube bed. The gas tank, radiator, batteries, extra storage, air tank, cooler, etc will be relocated to the rear. It will eventually get exo'd. And TBI will be swapped in. If all goes well, I will narrow the front end. I will make this truck mine, and be proud to say it I built it the way I wanted it.
