first scratch build, promise its not an s 10!

now that being said, i did get a free 7.5 housing from a blazer at work. I say this because i have seen countless posts of people hating on s10s. anyway the end goal is a bobbed truck that looks like a mini freightliner opentop roadster pickup. Dont crucify me please!

every thing in these pics was obtained for free except the rectangular tubing for the windshield frame. Thats the goal for this project, at least 80% scrap/junk. the engine will be a 250 inline 6, turbo 350 trans that i have laying around from a honda civic v8 project that threw a rod in the burnout contest at a car show a few years ago. 71/2 chevrolet rear end and i am thinking a 2wd jeep cherokee front axle. so far i have chevy vw and toyota parts scrounged up.
