  • Not ONLY alive...but kicking

    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.

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

                              Yes, it looks really cool. Love the patina and those rims.
