    Someone posted an '85 in great shape for $5,500. They'd make for a fun little truck to tinker with.

    It's alive! Drovebit breifly last night around the neighborhood with open headers, going to get the exhaust done in a little bit. I'll try to figure out YouTube and post a video, but there will be videos and a bunch of pictures from C10's in the park on my instagram this weekend.

    I can defiantly appreciate the Roadkill, wait till the last min and grind methodology, if it wasnt for the show Saturday the truck wouldnt be done for who knows how long, I dont even want to do a few of the small things I still need to do on it right now

    Probably the best way to see a bunch of the trucks, I really didnt take as many pics as I thought I would, it was a little overwhelming honestly, I walked what I thought was the whole thing twice and I still see pics of trucks I never saw.

    Its not so kid friendly

    My daughter would go everywhere in it if she could, instead we go to the park at the end of the street.

    Sounds and looks great!!

    Thanks for the pics, I just don't get out enough any more, the summers around here are just too brutal.

    Ohhh..nice swamp cooler, mad jelly. I started initial discussions with the wife about hooking up a/c in the garage for next summer so something gets done around here in the summer months.

    Finally addressing the cut springs lowering kit on the truck

    Drop spindles, springs, shocks, new upper control arms all going on soon. Probably new lower ball joints too

    3” drop spindles plus 2” springs = it’s coming back apart

    Probably going with a stock height spring and I’ll trim a little if needed after it settles

    Getting the ride height correct is a beating

    Original ride height was 28 3/8” at the fender
    Spindles ans 2” springs dropped it down to 27 1/4”

    So naturally stock springs would raise it up to 31”

    Going to drive it all week and let them settle and start cutting on Friday

    Since the swap I had not hooked up the gas gauge and the tach and speedo didnt work. Finally quit being lazy the other night and got everything working and played with some other setting on the gauges, I love these things!



    If the weather holds up this weekend im hoping to get it out to a couple car shows.

    Averaging about 14.5 mpg with spirited driving around town, no highway miles to really speak of. Not too shabby for what it is. Truck is a blast to drive.

    The "wants" list never gets any smaller, but the "needs" list is just about complete.

    Not the best picture of the stance due to the slope of the field, I need to get it out and take some decent pictures one of thee days.
