    No I don't love the truck, but the striping and lettering I do love. Your work product made the cover of Hot Rod magizine, and that my friend is high praise indeed.
    Good job Ed.

    I have the issue too. Very cool truck! I especially like the story that went along with it that he took his 10 year old son out of school to go Bonneville with him. All with his teachers approval. Thought that was pretty cool!
  11. Good deal and i like the use of the 4BT in it!

    I don't think it's about wether someone is crazy about it or not. It just isn't really a traditional hot rod and hence off topic. Nice work though, just would be more at home on dogfight than here.

    it wouldn't take much to make it more acceptable here, though it's obvious by the stuff sticking up that it's not his intention at all.

    It's also the reason the truck was featured....because it looks like it was built to piss off some people

    Congratulations to you and your bud. Got my issue late last week and his car is the first feature I flipped to. It may not be traditional, but I'd drive the shit out of it!

    I am not much into diesel but this project evidently was done right and has so far proven its worth to the owner. Overall appearance looks good to me and thanks for posting the coverage.

    Congrats on making it in to Hot Rod Magazine, and with a cover thats real cool. It's cool that he gave you his "wall plaque," that is the one thing I could never give up is my Hot Rod Magazine wall plaque, it means a lot to me.

    this truck was one of the many items we talked about today, my buddy and I know where a 50's Stewert truck cab is that would also make one hell of a cruiser and when we saw the article that was the main topic of conversation, like when do we start!!
