December 73-87 Truck of the Month- Winner(s)!!!!

This is the final 73-87 Truck of The Month for 2004. It's only fitting that we end the year with a bang. This month ToTM had a tie between two very different trucks. Both trucks are very nice examples of two of the more common current trends in trucks.

Congratulations goes to DirtyLarry & Buddy Lee.

Comments:

This truck has come along way and is no where close to even being done. The truck is in its current state because the acctual owner is in Japan! Thats right my brother owns this truck and he is in the Air Force and is stationed in Japan. He wanted the truck to start taking shape while he was gone and it progressed more than what he expected. So now we are at this state and will probably stay like this until he comes home, hopefully soon. Luckily he is the understanding brother he is and knows this truck can not just sit at home. So I take it out for the occassional cruise and drag! This truck is a blast to drive and rides so smooth and is so much fun to drive. I forgot how fun building trucks was until I got to roll this one down the hwy the first time. I made a peomise to him that when I started this project he would be very happy with it and he is. I hope everyone enjoys it and if anyone has questions please feel free to ask.....
