I do not have pics or video yet...but Oscar took his first drive around the block...and he ran just perfect.
The new electric fuel pump is WAY too noisy, but it works great. The new fuel tank fit great and works perfectly after I fabbed and welded up the frame.

Everything was surprisingly great....other than sitting on a bucket to drive him.

And btw....yes there was some rubber left on the street....just for fun. ;)

MANY thanks to you Bob.
Also Warren and TONS of you folks here, could NOT have done with out your support, advice, and parts help.
Your are not RID of me yet...I still have along way to go to be "DONE", if that will ever happen. Then of course there will be my "next" Stude project....we will see.

The bigger trucks are not the most practical, but they sure are cool. Have fun turning heads with that thing.

Congrats Kelly. There's nothing like that first drive. And you know it will never be "done". Love those big trucks.
