Just my two cents, but I think you and Tubby should decide to keep the wife, haha.

Re: Joined the Short Wheelbase Club *69 Tahoe Project*

Funny thing is, somehow I found your Minx build over on British V8s. I read that thread probably a year-and-a-half ago and then lost track. Then I was checking other stuff out on this site - I'm usually in the square body part. That sounds funny. Anyway, as I started reading this I thought over and over again, I got to go check this out, Frizzle Fry is just down the way a bit. And the further I kept going the more I kept underlining my note to self. I understand the accumulation of projects, it's happened to me too. I hope you figure out a way to keep this. Suburbans are great kid haulers, and I can say that from growing up. Keep the faith brother, whatever you're doing is cool. Even if you're building a Porsche, put a link on here. I'll come check it out.

Glad to see you get back at it. Can't wait to see the final picture.

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!

Re: Joined the Short Wheelbase Club *69 Tahoe Project*

Well to bump this thread for a hopeful update, and to say thank you for the inspiration. It seems I picked up a suburban from fellow member Uncle today. If I can find a hatch I’ll be doing a lot of rust repair and shortening to 116” wheelbase, if not it’s crew cab time. The fiancť probably wouldn’t say thank you after seeing what I brought home, but I am quite thankful for putting this crazy thought in my head.

Re: Joined the Short Wheelbase Club *69 Tahoe Project*

Hey friZzle, would you happen to remember how far into the door you had to cut or perhaps be able to take a measurement? Basically trying to find out the width of the green line, but if I had a measurement of the yellow line it would tell me everything I need to know. Canít quote you on it but I remember a post of yours saying take any ideas and use them, well Iím gonna take you up on that.

Alright Friz - I’ve got my dually on road - it’s time to get back on this thang! �� This one has always had the potential to be one of the coolest trucks anywhere!

It can be worked on again. Life & other projects can get in the way. It's only bad if it's sitting where the elements can do harm.

I have a 67/68 that's been sitting in various places of storage (garage, shop, storage building) for 20+ years now. Other than being dirty, it's fine & will be ready to continue its build when I'm ready.

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....
