Took the '73 out 'wheeling today.... Nothing much, but I've learned that my truck leaves much to be desires: needs a track bar, beefier steering, adjustments to clutch and t-case levers, longer wheelbase, lower center of gravity - and my list goes on. This truck is definitely a good start, it just needs more modifications. I would never even consider 'wheeling, building, or driving anything else but a GM - that's the beauty of a GM....you can only make 'em better. Not once, or twice, but THREE times today I had it leaned on the drivers side door. The door is completely bashed in and wrinkled. I bent the door so bad you can see a wrinkle on the inside near where the speaker would be. I thought I'd be screwed. But , while I was dragging over a tree, the mirror posts didn't bend, only the mirror folded in. The window still rolls up and down like it should, it isn't cracked at all, and the door still catches on the latch when you open and close it like it should. I'm impressed. It's a good thing I was already thinking tube doors. I did crack the windshield, though On the other hand, I need to get A/C working in this thing. I'm still pretty embarassed by it, so I'm not going to go too much into it, but I suffered severe heat exhaustion on the trail today, faded in and out of concousness (sp), and had to be taken off the trail on an ATV while someone else limped my truck back to the dually. Wasn't a very pleasent day, all in all.
