    So my birthday happened (again) and I got myself a high end camera, took a picture of the old Jalopy and can't get over how good it looks. Now, I'm not trying to say that I'm a pro photographer, I'm not. I just snapped that one real quick and was like 'He!! Yeah"!

    Hope you like it too as I'm almost done fix'en her up!

    Nothing like removing the smirk off of a drivers face who thinks "I got this".

    Great question!

    At 85 mph the rpm is straight up 2,000. = perfect!

    1st gear is 4.71:1 + 3.92:1 = 8.63:1 = DUMPTRUCK ratios, which makes a start from 0 near impossible with those truck tires on. They just go up in smoke!

    Now, if it's rolling as little as 10 mph this truck gets quite a dig and is insanely explosive at acceleration.

    It's a deadly sleeper. :)
