I'm a Mopar guy at heart....but I like all vehicles. Let's face it...it would be a shame to only collect gas pumps from one company. Especially, when the evolution of styling is based on what everyone else is making and above all what is selling.

A friend of mine sent me an e-mail to see if I knew anyone who would want to buy his truck. To make a long story short; I ended up buying it. I've been having a blast driving it around. It has collector (modified class) plates on it and was only $282.00 to insure for the year (with full coverage) which is cheap.

It has a fresh small block 400 with a 200R AT overdrive trany. Chrysler f-body front suspension and a 8 3/4" Chrysler rear end (both of which came from me). I'm kinda itching to put a 340 into it.

I personally like the Rat Rod look for now. Forgot to mention it's a 1957.

Love the tri-five chevy trucks. Own a custom 55 big window myself, Mustang II steering and newer Chrysler 300 black leather electric seats recovered from a totaled 2005. Total comfort and fun to drive. These trucks are head turners, in stock, custom or "ratted". I like your look in satin, red wheels and dog dish caps. Have fun.........

That is the kind of truck I have been saving to buy for the past 5 years. It was a 5 year plan that might take 7-8 years now. Maybe at that time you will be willing to sell.
