Default You think you hate it now, wait till you drive it.

Well I finally got my latest project done, been working my *** off trying to get it done for the Power Tour. But it's done!!! Well I might do some little things to it later, but it's good enough for now! Some people won't ''get it'', but those who do love it! And yeah, I probably should get a life and stop doing this kind of crap! LOL

Dude, you have too much money. Not sure the family truckster is what I would have put that engine in, but I guess someone had to do it. Perhaps we will see it on the tour...

I don't have that much in it really, it's a $700 car, sold the 302 AOD for $300, and I do all my own work, I know people that drink and gamble away more money than I spend on my cars, and ai still have the cars! The engine is just a 5.3, nothing special, I just had it lying around and well I get bored so.........

That's hilarious!

With an LSx in it, be sure to tie grandma down *real* good.

If you take that on the power tour you seriously need to attach a leash to the rear bumper and drag it the entire way. I'd suggest putting a manequin in a chair on the top, but the funny:gas mileage loss ratio might not be worth it.

First off, THAT is freakin' HILARIOUS!!!

Second, I'd seriously, STRONGLY urge you to bring Aunt Edna along - just have her as a mannequin that is only displayed in the evenings when you're stopped. Best of both worlds (fuel economy/hilarity).

Awesome job man...

Holly crap that's AWESOME!!!! I love it man.... Absolutely LOVE it! I fully expect you to have a leash dragging off the rear bumper when you come to the car shows around here.
