Only because a few of you asked me...

I wouldn't have posted this at all, but some folks been asking...










It's pretty stock looking, a real sleeper.
For those of you who don't habla sleeper.  It is a car or truck that looks stock, but hauls ass!
This one sure does that. In fact, it's kind of scary fast. Especially with no power steering, stock suspension, and a steering wheel the size of a wading pool.

  1. Purty truck. My only requirements for a vehicle are... it runs and has AC. Purty is optional. Your truck definitely has that option covered.

  2. Really nice, never had anything like that but I had my share of Mustangs and Camaros. Now we have two Mercedes, getting old I guess.

  6. Thank you!
    Oh yeah, I left out the seven miles per gallon part! And the leaking oil part! And the rattling sounds coming from everywhere part! And the no A/C Part! And the freaking out over rain, bird crap, and dust part!

  11. That is beautiful.... Is that a four on the floor I see?

  12. Thank you sir!
    The shifter is part of the "sleeper" vibe. The trans is a beefed automatic. The shifter (made by Lokar) is meant to give the appearance of a manual floor shifter. This truck had a "three on the tree" originally.
