Ok, my kid is building a 34 Ford truck with a 283 and a 3spd. Her boyfriend drives an early 70s Ford 1/2 ton with a 390 2v and c6, and is the "autoshop golden boy". Anyway, he was giving her crap about putting in the Chev (she only went chev because I had a standard and real rods have 3 pedals). Anyway she told him "when it's done not only am I going to hand you your ass, but I'm going to film it and put it on youtube."(brought a tear to my eye, I was so proud). Well, he was hanging around and talking about how fast his truck is and I said "look, its power vs weight, her truck will be in the 2000 pound ballpark so she doesn't need a lot of motor". He looks at me and starts laughing and says "my truck only weighs 1000 pounds". I ask him "how do you figure THAT?". His response was,,,, "It is a 1/2 ton truck".
