it took me 2 years and every extra dime of a $10 an hour job to build it.

i aint plannin on selling any time soon. ;)

Nice truck, and really nice rod!!

Have you had it on the salt yet?

Nice deal.   $8500 bucks up here in Canada buys you a rusty 2nd Gen 12v.  We envy the Southern USA vehicles you guys can pick up.

I got my 97 Non-Rusty 12v for less than half of that back in Oct. :thumb1:  :tongue:  :hyper: :hyper: :hyper:
