A short howdy do from the high desert of Arizona , the rain has finally moved off after three days , very uplifting to see that old sun shine again , folks around here are always saying " we need the moisture " phooey , enough is enough , I have an 86 sb square body that is a lot of fun finally to drive , not
really the last hot rod because there is still a 56 150 post to be finished , but the little pickup is done and getting used all the time : )
Thanks for your time ,
Steve

Steve

( actually the 56 is a gasser style build better suited for over on the tri-five gasser forum where I
contribute a little too )

Anything sporting a bowtie is fine with me , Ha !! The little handy must have run a good bit of HP and torque to twist the frame , wheeew !! a big block no doubt , I can see it front wheels in the air !!!!

Thanks !!

Welcome to the forum orderly, glad to have you here..sign0016
I appreciate the welcome and I'm pretty proud of my little 86 squarebody
so when I roll it out to use it next time I'll take some pictures and post
them Rich , if that would be alright ?? I don't have any pictures of it right
now , I don't know why ?? I used to : ) It's pretty much done now , the
finish didn't turn out to well but it sure runs great and has good AC for the
summers . It's awful loud though with headers and cherry bombs , I think
next I'll quiet it down abit with some flowmasters ??

Here is a recent picture of the 56 I mentioned , it should have been on the
road years ago but as they say , life got in the way : )

Thanks , I don't use my 86 often anymore but I'm going to dig it out and
take some nice pictures I can share , it gets a lot of compliments when I'm
out and about in it , has a different look maybe than most : )

I took some photos this morning , I'll try to post them now , my little
runabout / grocery getter , I have a big ice chest that just fits under
the lid so I can stash my goods away from prying eyes of the big city
thieves , I have to go up to the big city every 4 or 5 weeks for grub
and other things like ammo and car parts , Ha !!
Oh , it's an 86 with a T-56 six speed I used from a Vette I scrapped , the
motor is a 290 horse Chevy Perf crate engine from Summit , it was
a worry for awhile , no power and just strange behaving until it got
broken in and now it runs just fine !!! I like the look of the moon discs
but they are screw on and a pain to check the air , I think I have a
low tire now and dread taking out all those little screws and putting
them back , I think I'm going to Rally's and police caps one of these
days soon , I have eights on the front and tens on the back ~~~~~

Yes the color is perfect & nice stance speaking of ammo its near impossible to get 22lr around here. Figure there must be a lot of varmint shooting going on.

Thanks , I appreciate it ~~~~
Hmmm , don't seem to be much stirring over here in the trucks , I know
there is a huge segment of square body thugs out there that should be
dropping in to share and argue and such !! My little Santan is not your
conventional ride but I know folks like it because I get lots of waves and
up thumbs when I go up to the big city , So jump in and have some fun
jivin' and shuckin' and share your slammed rigs with us or what ever you have
bygolly , I'm waiting !!!!
