    And, why are you showing your friends truck? Why don't you show your own, and if he wants to get flamed, he can show his own truck.

    Am I the ONLY one that thinks the dash guage cluster is absolutely USELESS there??!?! WTF was he thinking? OK, let's make this look cool, nevermind that I'll need to avert my eyes from the road every time i want to see how fast I'm going.... What, is he going to make it a CENTERDRIVE truck...relocate the steering column right up the intakes ass? Whatever..ruined a perfectly good cab... cary on...

    It's a hard sell here for this truck because it's not built in the "style" that most here are in to..that dosn't mean to some it isn't cool or he dosn't have a ton of work in it.

    I like 59 Apache's....if it didnt' have HUGE tires out back and a dump truck bed i would dig it..and even overlook the cyclops dash cluster...
    Welcome to the HAMB 65..you have a very nice selection of car's
    I like 'em all:D

    Yuck! Sorry man. I've got a 58, which, in my mind, is the exact opposite of that thing.

    This got me thinking (dangerous, yes);
    Isn't pro-street sort of like saying professional amateur?
    If you're going to build a hot rod, build a good hot rod.
    If you want to build a real race car, making it streetable is not the way to do it.
    racing street cars is hot rod.
    driving a wantabe half-ass race car on the street is lame - rust or no rust.
     
  23. Pro street is a dying trend................................................thank god
