I have a 59 straight six that is original. I want to clean it up, with out a full rebuild. On my 90 truck I spray with Simple green and wash her down. Do you have any engine cleaning tips?

Would you believe I have that exact picture as my wallpaper on my computer? I am building a 48 right now and really liked the look of your truck. A I going a different direction on mine but I really like your stance and wheel setup. What kind of suspension are you running?

Welcome.. NICE TRUCK!! We need more info on it. Color?

Re: How about some pics of 47-59
 
Thanks for the nice comments... The truck is sub framed from a 1978 buick regal. The rear-end is out of the same car. It has front and rear sway bars to help in the handling ..it handles like a little sports car. The drive train is 327 engine with double hump heads and a borg warner 5 spd. The wheels are obviousley the torque thrust IIs ..17x7 front and 17x8 in the rear. The color is just a satin green. I am no artist but I just took my time and painted the logo on the door myself. Thanks again and I look forward to talkin with you guys on this forum.

My '52 is finally on the road after working on it for 7 long years. Since I planned on doing all the work myself in my garage, I decided to keep it simple and make it reliable by using factory GM parts whenever possible for the chassis and running gear.

It's sitting on a S-10 frame with "EXTREME" ZQ8 factory lowered suspension, front and rear sway bars and quick ratio steering box. I'm running a 350 crate motor with a 700R4 transmission and Camaro rear with 3:42 gears and 15x8 Corvette rallys. Body mods include; top chopped 1-1/2", wing windows removed and converted to 1 piece glass, front bumper bolts were shaved, and the dash, firewall and rear roll pan were smoothed. It also has the stock 20 gallon S-10 fuel tank, power windows and tilt wheel. I plan on driving the wheels off it this summer and finsh the interior, install bed wood, etc. over the winter months.
