    It's been a wile since I had a first drive in something I made. I guess you never lose that feeling. It runs,smokes the tires at will, rides great, PS,PB,AC still needs a lot, but boy was it just like the first time. This is for Los Angles I want to bring 34 truck home. When you make other peoples parts for there cars you never have the same first time thrills you get with your owen.
    No windshield,lights or seats, muflers What a blast.

    How about some of your first time drives?

    Man I weld up the frame and body and was worried about the front end so I just put it back together to see if anything moved and if front end worked. Boy I wise I had painted and sealed body everything works great. I love driving this truck!!! I was done making rods untill I drove this one. Due to job it took 4 years almost lost the bug.

    I don't much care for bobber trucks but I'm with Hackerbuilt here that looks DAMM good. You got the stance and proportions just right.

    Thanks
    I did not know it is a Bobber truck. It was just a cab now one wanted. It is hard to make these cabs look good.I am very happy with it.

    Yeah real hard to make look right ,most look like caca. I think your hood and grill is what makes it work. It could have a home in my garage.

    cool. I like it with the hood, you don't see many built that way. I'd put seats and glass in it, but that's just me.

    Where I live most people gave me to much crap for SBC in a Ford then theres the PS PB boster and AC so the hood was out of respect. But I like it with it. Now if I had a Hemi like DYNODANNY then no hood.

    Now, I really like what you did with that one. I agree that having the proper hood and grill make the truck look right.
