02-05-2005 05:10 PM bringing it home
Here's what it looked like bringing it home about ten years ago, I was 17 or 18 years old. I towed it home by myself with my dad's wrecker while he was out of town ;-)

02-05-2005 05:15 PM Frame
Many years later I put a S-10 frame under the stude..it worked out really good. I had to shorten it about 6" to get the 113" wheelbase. A few new mounting points etc and it was good to go. My dad did most of the engineering on this part of it.

Here it is a while after I drove it from Michigan to NC...where i live now. It handled the 12 hour drive no problem. This is it and my Dad's 1932 Chevy at an old gas station in Winston-Salem.

02-06-2005 08:39 AM New Drive shaft tunnel
After putting the dropped leaf springs and blocks in, the drive shaft was rubbing the floor. The rear end was also hitting the frame. My first notched frame. Now i can put the 4" lowering blocks instead of the 3" that i had.
