Hhhmmm, thought this site was pretty active, not that I need some kind of reply but you would think someone might say wow what a piece of junk or something lol
I am a member of other forums and most post like this usually get a response of some kind good or bad?... maybe my junk is just too junky, if it had 30in wheels, airbags and a $8,000 paint job it might fit in better lol
I do have my own style of make it fast before pretty.. and crust gives it a little additude IMO
Just had to voice what i was thinking...

Oh shoot no. Your problem is its not FI pro charged turbos all on a God like LS all tuned with a piece of software on a laptop with some 6speed 8pqltz trans.
Seriously I was thinking along the same lines. Pretty quiet like a cemetery

Is that a JW on that 400.Ran one on a 800 hp Cuda a few years ago and was a little skeptical at first,but it worked out great.Ran out of cash before we could get all the bugs worked out,but 4000 lb car still ran a 10.17 quarter.Keep posting vids, I like em

Nice `69, I just about bought one similar to it before I got my `65. I`m kind of partial to both body styles. Keep the updates coming

I just gave him a much better 69 grill out of one of the donor trucks I just got. I personally prefer the 67 grill I like the clean less busy look.

Hoppa has worked a lot on that truck since day one but most all of it was not cosmetic. The new parts he is adding should make it a beast as far as drivetrain. I cant wait to see how it runs as far as ET.

Keep at it brother it will be a very sweet ride!

No reason to think that way as Otis is trying to bring in a support group in place to help out with questions.
