So your street/strip car moonlights as a NASCAR on the weekends?
Who cares if it can TURN!
Years ago, I was looking for a decent deal on a rolling chassis.
I planned to do a small-block VEGA or something like that.
I couldn't find anything close enough to me for a decent price.
So I decided to go a different route.
I had the old stepside truck for 20 years. I had no plans to ever sell it, so I decided I would build it instead of trying to find someone elses project.
( The truck has sentimental value. )
Trucks are not aerodynamic. It takes more effort to make them go!
I could have made a 9-second small block Vega easy.
You see lots of Chevy S10 trucks at the track, but not as many full-size pickups.
I'm not the quickest, but i'm still having fun with the old girl.
That's what is more important to me.
